Introducing: Martin Browne from Tutornet
WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY / PROJECT?
WHY WAS IT SET UP?
To facilitate online tuition by matching tutors and learners.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST THING YOU HAVE LEARNT ALONG THE WAY?
The market for commercial online tuition doesn't exist yet! Almost nowhere in the world.
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR COMPANY / PROJECT NEXT?
Use tutors as mentors rather than as teachers. To guide learners through the mass of online learning material to achieve their learning objectives. Also to create a database of achievements for each individual which will show what they can actually do rather than just courses they have attended.
HOW CAN PEOPLE GET INVOLVED?
Tutornet is likely to remain small but its influence could be huge. It would succeed by leveraging the power of the network to record achievements and validate these.
WHY DID YOU JOIN EDSPACE?
To be part of the EdTech community and to provide a London address
WHAT CAN YOU TEACH? (ANYTHING YOU ARE SKILLED AT OR PASSIONATE ABOUT)
How people use technology
