It’s been another incredible week at Lumen – we have more exciting news to share!
First, Lumen has been selected as one of seven winners of the Next Generation Courseware Challenge, a $20 million grant competition from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to build exemplary, affordable digital course materials that improve student success among low-income and disadvantaged learners. This work includes a singularly awesome set of design, research, development, and content partners, together with an amazing consortium of schools that will co-design and test the resulting open, competency-based courses.

Second, yesterday we won the EDUCAUSE Game Changers Business Competition, recognizing the great work our team is doing and validating Lumen’s potential to sustainably grow to impact millions of students, faculty, and institutions.

I’m feeling overwhelmed with gratitude for amazing and talented colleagues, wonderful partners, and great opportunities to do good work. Here’s to more awesomeness!
