Yesterday I moderated a panel at the Association of Education Publishers meeting in Washington DC on innovative business models for education companies. The panel was made up of:
- Martin Knott, President Moodlerooms.com
- Joe McDonough hotchalk.com
- Mark Tullis, Learning.com
- I represented two of my clients – WeAreTeachers.com and Whyville.net.
We talked about subscription based models, an iTunes like model for instructional content, open source SaaS, embedded assessment, and Micro-distributorships. All of these are new to the education market. The panelists shared lessons learned from pioneering these approaches.
