Higher Education Learning Platform with Open DNA

Jobs at panOpen

Openly sourced learning materials are part of a systematic rethinking in the way educational courseware is produced and consumed. Today, every major Higher Education institution has an OER (Open Educational Resources) initiative. panOpen is the leading learning platform based on open source educational material.

Come be a part of a fast growing and mission driven team with diverse backgrounds who are all passionate about education.

panOpen was founded in April, 2013 by Brian Jacobs, a Cornell Ph.D. and successful EdTech entrepreneur. A couple of months later the company participated in the inaugural class of the Kaplan EdTech Accelerator powered by Techstars, graduating in September 2013.

While dramatically reducing the cost of educational materials to students, at panOpen we focus on solving three critical challenges to the adoption of OER:

Curation: Faculty curated, school-specific libraries of OER titles for each institution with materials approved collaboratively through peer review. This helps ensure that only high quality content becomes part of the institutional libraries.

Learning Tools: Capability to remix, edit, and customize content so instructors can adapt materials to their curriculum and learning objectives, while delivering cutting-edge learning tools for OER to enhance the experience of faculty and students. Students get a mobile responsive learning experience complete with interactive assessments, note taking and reviewing, analytics, and much more.

Sustainability: Establishing a revenue sharing model that ensures that all relevant stakeholders (copyright holders, authors, faculty and institutions) are financially compensated for the time and effort spent creating, curating, adopting, and customizing OER content.
