I’m super excited to share the news about Ed Startup 101 – a new open online course being offered this fall by a great team including Richard Culatta, Todd Manwaring, and myself. The course focuses on entrepreneurship in the educational context, and will be useful whether you’re taking the “quit your job, raise some money, start a company” route, or the “keep your job, write some grants, start a project” route, or if you’re interested in making a long-term impact on education in some other way.
We have a ridiculous list of incredibly talented experts who will be participating in the course. Each will lead a live video-based question and answer session, in which participants can ask the question they’ve always wanted to put to a venture capitalist, serial entrepreneur, foundation program manager, consultant, etc. Just these sessions alone will be worth the cost of admission. Oh wait – the course is free and open. Either way, these sessions are going to be fantastic.
We will be awarding badges through the Mozilla Open Badge Infrastructure for successful completion of course projects. The course is available for credit to BYU students as IPT 692R section 006. If you’re at another university and want to figure out how you can earn credit for the course, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Complete our short More Information / Pre-enrollment Survey to let us know you’re interested and to receive updates as we get closer to the start of term. The course runs August 24 – December 7.
