Our Background

NovoEd, Inc. is a cloud-based software company on a mission to make online education more effective and engaging. NovoEd creates the most engaging online platform for the modern learner. Our solutions enable our customers to collaborate worldwide and to more productively train their employees, partners, customers, and students.

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 modern learning solutions built for the mobile, social learner.

Now, NovoEd serves organizations around the world that need a better way to teach online – whether it’s employee training, partner enablement, or executive education.

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