Over 17 years ago, Michael Feldstein set out to understand what was important to him about EdTech and how he wanted to embark in the field. Despite his initial skepticism, blogging his thoughts about the industry seemed like a natural step, when the practice of online journaling was in its infancy. E-Literate was born and has become an authoritative space with the mission to help higher education institutions and the education companies that serve them to help students succeed in a 21st-century world.
Other initiatives such as the Empirical Educator Project (EEP) have also sprung up as a result of Feldstein’s work with E-Literate. EEP’s mission is to get educators and EdTech companies together to discuss challenges and opportunities in the field, based on the proposition that higher education must and can transform to meet the challenges of education today.
E-Learn spoke with Feldstein to gather insights on how he sees the evolution of digital content in higher education today and how EdTech companies can effectively support them. The goal? To provide high-quality online learning experiences.
