The LectureTools Mission
Technology is changing education. Widespread broadband access and the affordability of laptops, tablets and smartphones have rewritten the rules for what is possible. But what does this mean for teachers and students? How will the learning environment be impacted? At LectureTools we work to answer these questions and to reinvent the role of Internet technology in the classroom.
Our first product is an advanced student response and note-taking tool, evolved from a successful research system. A live beta test of the application has begun in May with approximately 500 users, and commercial launch to colleges nationwide is planned for September.
This product reflects our current laser focus on the higher education market, but it is also the first step towards a broader vision. Ultimately, the LectureTools team is driven to create a single web-based environment that supports learning and teaching throughout the lives of our users. We’ve got big plans. Come help us realize them.
LectureTools is made up of a close team of passionate, driven and diversely skilled individuals. Collectively, the team has decades of experience in software development and education. We are supported by an exceptional group of advisers, including former CEOs and nationally renowned educators. The company is funded by the National Science Foundation and by the University of Michigan. This is a unique opportunity to join a well-financed start-up in a high-profile role. We are doing work with genuine meaning and the potential for significant impact. Really, pretty cool stuff.
