The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Co-founded by Dan Avida, Stanford emeritus professor Serge Plotkin, Coursera co-founder and Stanford adjunct professor Daphne Koller and Jamie Nacht Farrell, a former executive at 2U and Trilogy. Engageli was designed to optimize student success and deliver engaging teaching and learning experiences across a broad spectrum of needs for higher education.
The platform features tools specially designed to enrich the inclusive digital learning experience, including table groups and dynamic breakout sessions, instant integration of polls, quizzes and interactive exercises to test knowledge of course content and gallery view and fixed seating with real time engagement data for instructors to better interact with students, regardless of class size.
Engageli is currently piloting its platform with a select group of higher ed institutions.
