Are edutech startups plugging an innovation gap in our universities?

Does technological innovation have to come from within the sector? Claire Shaw hears from the current wave of edutech players with their roots firmly in higher education

Karen Johnson‘s insight:

I like this article not just because of the edutech angle but because it says, "[students] are taking the [learning] experience online themselves".  Hurrah!  Yes this is just what we are seeing students starting up their own Facebook groups etc.  What this article is saying is that this activiety is the result of universities not providing the right kind of technology tools for students.  Yes, that is fine for those students who will/can do this for themselves – don’t we owe it to the other 50% of students who need the university to provide guidance in the form of the tools it provides?
