Freelance Graphic Designer

About 101edu:

The traditional college model of learning hasn’t fundamentally changed in centuries. We’ve seen technology touch every aspect of our lives and yet today’s students are still handed static textbooks and passively listen to professors who lecture as they did in the middle ages.

101edu is transforming higher education with our active learning platform for STEM courses. We’re a VC backed team of engineers, educators, and innovators who are redefining the way students learn and interact with their subject-matter. We focus on elegant, discipline-specific interactive assessment tools that triumph over generic multiple choice and antiquated online homework. Our first product for chemistry, Chem101, has been quickly adopted at over 500 higher ed institutions and we’re just getting started. Check out some of our innovative work here:
