NSIN – ACU presents The Opportunity of EdTech with Lisa Vincent
March 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Opportunity of EdTech
What we know about technology is that it doesn’t destroy jobs – the robots are not taking over, BUT the speed at which we need to learn new skills is growing. How do businesses cope when graduate (& manager) knowledge is fast going out of date? Enter the ‘The Canva of eLearning’ (Dynamic Business), HowToo. HowToo is an authoring tool that allows businesses to create custom learning modules using pre-made templates with built-in learning science … and we will hear from its co-founder!
OUR AWESOME SPEAKER
Lisa Vincent (https://www.linkedin.com/in/lisarvincent/)
Lisa Vincent is a successful company founder and entrepreneur specialising in design, technology and learning.
Lisa and her co-founder, Jenny Barltrop, founded Savv-e 20 years ago – a leading Australian custom digital learning business. As they acquired 200+ large corporate and Government clients over the years, they discovered a need for organisations to easily share knowledge and develop skills via online learning without a team of UX designers, learning experts or developers.
HowToo was born to transform the eLearning industry with AI technology at the core. HowToo is a platform that allows businesses to build great digital content in minutes instead of months. HowToo has been described as “the Canva of eLearning,” and signed 40+ enterprise clients since our launch in February 2020.
