How LearnLaunch Accelerator Portfolio Company’s are Supporting Educators and Students During COVID-19
The way people interact with their world has changed drastically in the weeks since COVID-19 began to spread internationally. In an effort to reduce the spread of the virus workers have started to work from home, people are communicating almost exclusively online, and the amount of face to face human interaction has dramatically decreased across the globe. To confront this, education institutions at every level have begun to leverage Edtech as a means to ensure that students can continue to learn in a safe and effective manner.
At LearnLaunch Accelerator we too have begun working remotely and are in the midst of helping our companies navigate adjusting their offerings to better support learners and educators. To that end, over a quarter of our portfolio companies have responded to the COVID-19 crisis by making their tools free and accessible to all and/or designing additional resources and support for any current and future customers.
