We are developing cutting-edge technology to solve hard problems in education.
NovoEd is a student-centered online learning environment that places collaboration and teamwork at the center of the learning experience through the use of techniques in human-computer interaction, algorithms, and social network design. Together as a team, we leverage web technology to make quality education scalable and accessible to everyone. Currently, we are:
- Improving college graduation rates by tackling remedial math
- Bringing the price of a college degree within the reach of millions
- Increasing online course retention rates by more than 10x
- Measuring explicit and implicit learning outcomes at scale
- Designing social incentives, crowd-sourcing mechanisms and recommendation systems to enrich online classrooms
The list goes on and on. We have already made a lot of progress, but we need your help to do much more.
