How is the Virtual Classroom Upending Education?

Understanding Trends in EdTech

With more than a billion students learning virtually worldwide, schools are being forced to address the opportunities and challenges of online learning. On November 16th, we hosted a webcast with Aydin Senkut, Founder of Felicis Ventures and one of the leading minds investing in EdTech companies. Stephen Vaccaro, Hirtle Callaghan’s Head of Private Equity, led a discussion with Aydin about how technology is transforming education. Specifically, Aydin highlighted three key areas:

–  Enabling individualized, student-centric learning

–  Enhancing skill-based learning for specific jobs and fields

–  Expanding schools’ mission and platform for a wider audience


Aydin mentioned companies at the forefront of these trends and offered examples in the Felicis portfolio – you can find a short description of those companies here.
