EDUonGo enables anyone to launch what’s essentially an online school based in the cloud. Instructors can set up courses, give quizzes and assignments, grade students and allow for easy collaboration with a built-in social network.
The company has more than 6,000 users, which include everyone from individuals to those at institutions. Clintondale High School, a Detroit “flipped school” where students watch lectures at home and do homework in class, uses the EDUonGo platform, for example.
EDUonGo makes money via three pricing models: revenue sharing, monthly subscriptions or school/organization-based fees. The startup was co-founded last year by CEO Ridvan Aliu, COO Steven Yee and CFO Nick Scott.
