Today The Edtech Podcast announces that Loughborough University in London will provide the spectacular venue for The Edtech Podcast Launch Party in October 2016.
Loughborough University is ranked as a top 10 university for research excellence, with almost 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. This year Loughborough University topped the Times Higher Education Student Satisfaction survey; an interview focusing on Loughborough Universities UX strategy was released on episode 10 of The Edtech Podcast.
The Loughborough London campus opened 6 months ago and the course focus on Design Innovation, Digital Technologies, Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, and Media and Creative Industries make it a perfect fit for the communities involved in education technology.
