We’re proud to announce sixteen new partnerships with leading educational and research institutions, including Stanford, Princeton, University of Michigan, University of Virginia Darden School of Business, Babson Global, the Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, among others. For a full list, please visit (https://www.novoed.com/company/content-partners/). Through these relationships, NovoEd will provide the platform, tools, and services that enable its partners to offer both massive online open courses (MOOCs) and smaller private courses in a social, collaborative and connected environment. With this new technology, the world is now a connected, social classroom. We can’t wait to see you in one of our classes! We’re thrilled to be working with these innovative institutions to offer unique learning opportunities for you to expand your educational opportunities and tools for universities to use to improve teaching methods and learning.
Shahid Ansari, CEO of Babson Global, one of the top ranked business schools for Business and Entrepreneurship in the world, writes “With NovoEd, we’re destroying geographic boundaries by offering global classrooms enriched with collaboration and connectivity.”
Each of our partners plans to integrates its interactive learning model into the NovoEd online social learning environment to bring you the most connected classes anywhere. For example, the Carnegie Foundation is testing new approaches to blended learning using social technology while the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) offered its first MOOC on retirement finance and public pensions last fall. The online course drew 44,000 users who accessed collaborative group work, online discussion, and faculty content.

Along with hand-washing, disinfecting, and social distancing, Zoom has become part of life for many during the pandemic. However, the initial thrill of seeing distant colleagues on video conferences has given way to fatigue, anxiety, and distraction as we struggle to stay engaged.
