Tech Spotlight: 2U

2U has seen a lot of excitement lately! They lost their president, Jim Shelton, to Mark Zuckerberg’s education initiative, but they also recently announced impressive profits and exciting continuations with their higher education partners. 2U is an online education platform that uses synchronous engagement and real world experiences to provide the quality and intensity of an in-person program for digital degrees. They work with higher education partners like the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse, the Yale School of Medicine, and the Berkeley School of Information to offer great content in a platform that makes online students feel connected to their classmates, professors, and communities.

2U is an engaging platform that is on the right track when it comes to teaching well online. The schools they partner with are committed to offering the same quality experience, and the same degree, as their in-person programs.
