COVID-19 made online education mainstream - so, what did we learn along the way?

Because of the pandemic, the adoption of EdTech boomed – but has education gotten better as a result? Has the industry lived up to its promise?

In just the next three years, the EdTech industry is projected to continue to grow another $112.39 billion - let’s learn from the pandemic boom to chart a path towards the future.

Hosted by the EdTech Circle, a sub-community of Factory Berlin.

About the Circles Program

Growing organically from our members’ desire to connect with one another, Circles are self-organized sub-communities at Factory Berlin, gathered around shared interests, industries, and projects, where members exchange ideas, inspire and support each other.

Alongside regular and casual meetings, the community Circles program has evolved to include monthly formal meetups supported by the Factory Berlin Team, where speakers from the wider network are invited to share their experience and expertise.

About the Edtech Circle

The EdTech Circle helps to promote Education and Learning, it provides a platform for all stakeholders in Education to network and discuss challenges, opportunities and learnings. They currently have 200+ members in their slack channel.
