NovoEd is a program delivery platform,[1] founded by Stanford University professor Amin Saberi[2] and PhD student Farnaz Ronaghi, that partners with training firms, corporations, educational institutes and foundations to provide blended learning solutions.[3][4]

History[edit]

Launched originally as Venture Lab, NovoEd rebranded to its present name in 2013.[5] Students view lecture videos on the platform as individuals, but NovoEd's unique value to learners is that they can collaborate in small teams and submit assignments with classmates around the world. The company has found success and higher completion rate with this focus on collaboration.[6]

Investors include Costanoa Venture Capital[7] and Stanford University. NovoEd customers use the platform to create and host a mix of paid and free courses in a variety of topics, such as entrepreneurship, finance, business strategy, design & creativity, and humanities. In the beginning, NovoEd mainly offered courses from Stanford University but has now evolved to become a program delivery platform.[8] Some of Novoed’s customers include, Comcast, IDEO, Nestle and Unilever.[9]
