Idea Bar #17: Virtual School Hackathon Challenge

Schools went virtual overnight. Sure, online classes have been growing from the full blown online universities like the University of Phoenix to LinkedIn Learning to new startups like Lessonly for business.

On top of that, it's not clear if schools will be able to start terrestrial classes in the Fall.  Virtual School Hackathon Challenge If you are a high sc...

The #1 Tactic That Will Help You Be More Productive as A Leader

FOR THE PAST DECADE or so I have spent a lot of time in organizations getting to know their leaders and how they work. That inside look has given me a firsthand account of what they are dealing with on a daily basis. Suffice it so say, this is not your father’s organization.

That kind of distraction takes an u...

Consolidation on tap as investors seek an Amazon for online education

By Alex Hicks, MHT Partners Private equity investors are looking for someone to take an Amazon approach to online education. Since the days of the frontier schoolhouse, where different ages were taught together in the same classroom, education has become more and more fragmented. Kindergarten and then elementary are separate from middle school and then high school. Higher education is an entirely different experience, in a very different atmosphere, as is post-graduate education and professional...
