What’s featured in this episode? 

  • The varying business models of online and offline edtech start ups
  • Online and real-life learning platforms as an opportunity to enhance student progression within the work place
  • How do online and real-life learning platforms sit alongside University degrees? 
  • Advice to edtech start ups from Howdo and Crehana

Quotations:

From Howdo:

  • ‘We believe that it’s really important still for educational learning  - especially of adults - to not just take place online’
  • ‘We are starting in London and that’s because there is such a rich variety of classes and courses already here.’ 
  • ‘Real-life learning is about workshops, classes and in-person courses to have a learning experience.’ 
  • ‘We are focusing solely on offline currently.’ 
  • ‘Maybe they are a closet artist and take a life-drawing course for the first time’
  • ‘Soundcloud was an amazing experience and a fantastic start-up learning experience.’ 

From Crehana:

  • ‘There is no type of online training solutions for them in their own local language. There is a high concentration of online education companies in English, but when we look at emerging markets such as Latam or Eastern Europe there is actually no type of supply.’ 
  • ‘We launched Crehana a year ago and we now have more than 115, 000 users from 15 countries in Latam and Spain. We are solving a huge pain which is access to high quality education.’
  • ‘we target all of the creative professionals - aspiring creatives and independent freelancers.’ 
  • ‘Right now we are focusing on doubling down in Spain and Latam, but we think we will enter Brazil by the end of 2016.’ 
  • ‘We want to solve access to high quality education in emerging markets.’
