Introducing... Sam Loose from Knowledge Transmission
WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY / PROJECT?
Knowledge Transmission’s mission is to deliver the best social learning experience in the world.
Students’ expectations are changing. Students want integrated study programmes with a combination of books, mobile apps, social learning and on-demand mobile learning. Knowledge Transmission is at the forefront of these new ways of learning. We specialise in English Language Learning and vocational content delivered in the English language.
WHY WAS IT SET UP?
Publishers and Universities are struggling to meet the needs of teachers and students in terms of online learning. There is no single platform unifying publishers content. We provide platform and content and deliver courses from universities preferred publishers.
Furthermore the emerging economies are not well serviced in terms of high quality content and innovative platforms. Half of our customers did not exist as universities 5 years ago.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST THING YOU HAVE LEARNT ALONG THE WAY?
In erms of the product: Customers know what they want we need to listen to them. In terms of business: Equity investment should be simple.
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR COMPANY / PROJECT NEXT?
We want to grow to 500 universities using our platform.
HOW CAN PEOPLE GET INVOLVED?
Introduce us to university contacts in the emerging economies outside Europe and North America, or come and have a cup of tea and a chat.
WHY DID YOU JOIN EDSPACE?
It is the first dedicated Educational workspace I've come across. We want to be linked into this community and try and help where we can from our experiences.
