Our Background

NovoEd is the leading provider of social and collaborative learning for the enterprise.  NovoEd’s cloud-based learning platform enables the creation and delivery of engaging global learning experiences that lead to sustainable behavior change and enable business transformation.  

Founded at Stanford, NovoEd developed technology to make online learning more like great in-person learning. Our first clients were some of the top business schools, including Stanford GSB, Wharton, and UVA Darden. As millennials became a significant part of the workforce, companies began demanding contemporary learning solutions built for the mobile, social learner.

NovoEd serves organizations around the world that need a better way to teach online – whether it’s corporate learning and development, training firms, or executive education.

NovoEd and its customers are leading the charge to drive transformation in business and learning.
