On December 12, Michael and I joined Eilif Trondsen for a podcast interview for the Nordic EdTech Network. One of the primary activities for the network is to "help Nordic EdTech companies become better informed about the EdTech industry and landscape not only in the Nordic region but also of the global EdTech market dynamics." Put another way, Eilif is a great network connector. You can access the podcast interview at this page. We are also sharing the interview below.
Some of the questions:
- What are a couple of things/developments that you have seen out there in the education industry that you think either have had significant impact on current edtech markets, or that may well have significant impact on these markets in the next 2-3 years or so?
- What have we seen in European procurements related to edtech and how would that impact smaller startups and non-LMS vendors?
- Do you see opportunities in learning analytics and adaptive learning vendors [with an interest comment about whether Knewton is going to be a dominant player]?
- Do you have any recommended Dos and Don'ts for any Nordic edtech vendors considering to target the US market?
