REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Course Hero, an online learning platform that empowers millions of students and educators to succeed, kicks off its annual Education Summit today. College students, top educators and Course Hero leaders convene to share knowledge spanning academia, career experiences and stories of personal success.
Course Hero's Education Summit celebrates top educators and students from around the country, through an experience where they can interact, and ultimately learn from each other while informing advancements in learning technology. Attendees take away a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities in education today and make tangible contributions to shaping the future of learning.
"Although educators, students and edtech companies are all essential contributors to the evolution of learning, it's rare to have all three groups together at once in an open forum to freely exchange ideas and learn from one another," said Andrew Grauer, founder and CEO of Course Hero.
Activities at the Education Summit will inspire, inform and engage representatives from each group. Highlights of the agenda include guest lectures from two popular and prominent educators:
- Award-winning Virginia Tech professor John Boyer is passionate about providing the highest quality learning experience that will produce global citizens and leaders prepared to positively shape the future of the US, and the world.
- Assistant Professor Stanley Stepanic teaches one of the most popular courses at the University of Virginia: Dracula. He uses the 3000-year history of vampirism as an introduction to Slavic folklore and the catalyst for a curriculum spanning literature, religion, misconceptions, disease, history and psychology.
Representatives from Course Hero will also lead workshops on social media, design and more.
The Course Hero team comprises a group of individuals passionate about education. They have partnered with top education experts and innovators to build an online learning platform that surpasses one million visits a day.
