About

This is how it all started.

In 2013, I was teaching an NYU marketing course to adult learners and noticed that my students – mostly international and online – were increasingly preferring to consume content on their personal devices. I immediately decided to create a “mobile-first” learning experience that met them on their own terms, anywhere, and at any time.
Enter: The first course taught online and over mobile phones.

This course needed a home, and that’s how MassiveU was born. MassiveU was not only the tool used to design the mobile-first course, but it also became the marketplace to distribute it. The vision and mission of this new venture quickly unfolded from there: How can education be transformed globally, using technology, so that students are best prepared for college and career?

Over the years that followed, and with the help of several genius, A-player, problem solving, extreme-collaborators, we evolved the platform to serve learners with innovative on-demand, mobile-first content delivery. We also augmented the learning with experiential / applications-based functionality; an area that high-stakes testing programs ignore.

What’s learning really for, if you’re not applying it?
Fusing learning with doing in a beautifully designed and engaging learning experience became our passion, as measurement and tracking of longitudinal learning outcomes and efficacy became our obsession. Our initial, relatively simple idea of Let’s make learning active, meaningful, and fun found an accomplice: Let’s measure it all through a 21st Century lens. And so, we employed competencies that go beyond basic content consumption and assessment data, taking into account experiential engagement, social participation, shifts in mindset, and other pertinent future readiness and career success information. Yes, that’s a lot to accomplish (let alone say!). Soon enough, however, leading publishers and educational partners took notice of our platform and selected MassiveU as their “digital differentiator”! We couldn’t be prouder to put their names on our products and support learners at scale.
Fast-forward to today, where integrated digital learning experiences are a must-have.

Mobile-first, personalized learning; innovative technologies like AI and machine learning; and contemporary engagement touchpoints mapped to meaningful academic and occupational competencies are all somewhat ubiquitous. Not only is delivering an extraordinary learning experience using technology and blended learning theory imperative, but so, too, is connecting the dots between today’s learner and an obscure workforce of tomorrow. We often ask ourselves, “What will the workforce look like in 5, 10 or 30 years?” and “How can we best support learners so they are most prepared, and / or agile, to adapt to this new and changing environment?” Our focus has never been more clear: to be the glue for K12, Higher Education, Adult Learning and Corporate Learning and Development, via accessible, intuitive and comprehensive products and measurements for not only today’s learner but tomorrow’s employer. We are passionate about the idea of being an advocate or agent, if you will, for student career success throughout lifelong learners’ journey. That is the legacy for leaving this world a better place that makes each of us jump out of bed, excited to start each day.

Continuing to work with partners who share this transformative vision and mission is nothing short of humbling. As educators, this has become crucial. As EdTech leaders, we see it as our responsibility. And, perhaps most importantly, as parents, it is personal.

Thank you for visiting our site and for learning more about MassiveU. We look forward to reaching new heights of global education transformation – together!

FAVE TEACHER | Mark Doyle was my music teacher when I was 14 years old. His inspiring ways as a former band member of the band Meatloaf and his engaging capability to teach and take me on a journey of different styles and genres made me fall in love with the art of music writing, playing, and performance.
FAVE CLASS | Sales Management. Applying our semester-long project to each student's individual real-world career forever changed my world.

FAVE TEACHER | My high school Spanish teacher Mrs. Smith was the best instructor i've had. Aside from being a great role model, she was always able to elegantly ride that line between being compassionate and strict with her expectations of her learners. She is always willing to go the extra mile to help every one of her students succeed and brought a great energy to the classroom every day.
FAVE CLASS | My favorite course was a network security course I took as an undergraduate. I consider it one of my favorites due to the instructors’ teaching approach. The coursework was heavily gamified and revolved around learning to hack various systems. It challenged students by allowing them to create their own learning path, with self-selected difficulties. More difficult problems were rewarded exponentially over easier ones, yet they’d take significantly longer. Oftentimes, my own greed became my worst enemy, which made me engage even more with the coursework.

FAVE TEACHER | My high school Geometry teacher, Mr. (Scott) VonderBruegge. His instruction had the Goldilocks factor. It fell in a 'just right' sweet spot of instructor-designed tension, or challenge, and my skill ability. He propelled me towards a deeper knowledge and understanding of Math I didn't know was possible. I could always count on him for timely and consistent feedback along the way.
FAVE CLASS | My all-time favorite class was AP English Lit. At the end of a novel, our teacher would offer the class a choice menu of alternative assessments to demonstrate our knowledge and skills. I always looked forward to these opportunities to utilize my creativity. I will never forget our dramatic performance of Macbeth… ’Double, double toil and trouble!’

FAVE TEACHER | 3rd Grade, Mrs Calhoun. She used to have a daily reading hour, and she’d let us take turns sitting in her lap in this big comfortable chair she called “Grandma’s Chair” while she read to the class and had us read along with her. Outside of my parents, she was probably the single biggest influencer of my love of reading. She helped associate reading with being happy and learning.
FAVE CLASS | I took a surprisingly upbeat Death & Dying course and the professor taught us all a great deal about what my grandparents’ end of life experience was like. It really broadened my horizons in unexpected ways.

FAVE TEACHER | Mrs. Murphy. My 8th grade English teacher, Mrs. Murphy was old school. No crap, no corner cutting, and spoke to us as young adults and expected us to act as such. More than a good teacher, she was an exceptional role model and human being. She was elegant, unbiased, extremely well educated and understood her power and how to wield it in a way that was productive without being domineering both with students and parents.
FAVE CLASS | The Aji Network: Business Professionals Course. If you've never heard of Toby Hecht I would encourage all business owners, executives and aspiring young career pursuants to research him. His business professional's course is unlike anything I'd ever heard of or encountered before. Toby teaches his students to orient themselves in conversations of power in any given context and it is infinitely valuable in business and in life.

FAVE TEACHER | I was very lucky to have many great teachers, although a teacher who really brought learning to life for me was Mrs. Nelson. Each year Mrs. Nelson turned her classroom into the Amazon Rainforest by decorating with palm frons as our canopy, playing the sounds of the rainforest, and of course a lot of stuffed animals. Each student gave a presentation on an animal or a section of the rainforest. I was very unsure about both my writing and presenting skills at that time. Exercises like these led to my success in writing and my ease with presenting in my future endeavors!
FAVE CLASS | My favorite class was my World Religions class. The instructor really brought the course to life having traveled to many countries that practice a wide range of religions. This class really fueled my desire for travel and learning about other beliefts. I strive to not just be a tourist when I travel anymore but to understand and respect the culture around me.

FAVE TEACHER | By far my most notable teacher has to be all the way back to 5th grade, Mrs. Aguilera. She is one of those teachers that just made the environment fun. Building a garden as well as doing fun point building exercises which got us cool prizes at the end of each semester. By far one of my most notable student experiences!
FAVE CLASS | This has to be my first history class in college. I forget that professor's name but he was super passionate about history. He would tell you history as if he were there and was a story book, giving each moment in history told with dramatic pauses and noises. By far my favorite class and this type of class stuck on to me so easily. I never liked history so much and without a surprise I got an A there.

FAVE TEACHER | Mr. Zulli, who always encouraged us to take on the learning process. He’d give us a nudge in the right direction, or help us brainstorm, but he always wanted us to figure out the solution for ourselves. This helped me, and my peers, develop valuable problem-solving skills.
FAVE CLASS | Networking, which was a project-based learning class where we built full-stack applications to be used by staff or students in our school. Working on real-life projects was much more fulfilling than simple assignments, and the experience was one that my other classes weren’t able to offer.

FAVE TEACHER | My 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Bilancini. She always went out of her way to learn more about what interested each of us outside the classroom, often finding innovative ways to integrate that information into her lessons, making them more rewarding and personally engaging.
FAVE CLASS | In my sophomore year of high school, I took an elective called “Design, Draft, Production”, which taught basic concepts of mechanical engineering, design drafting and AutoCAD (basically shop class for nerds). I have always been a very technically-minded individual, so being able to experiment with cutting-edge computer software filled a void in my school day which otherwise consisted of textbooks and dry lectures.

FAVE TEACHER | Dr. Peter Clarke, Associate Professor at Florida International University (FIU), helped guide me to understand how I learn through his rigorous courses. Over the years, he has presented me with challenging opportunities that have made me the Software Engineer I am today. He has a huge heart and always has the students’ best interest.
FAVE CLASS | My favorite course was Vertically Integrated Project at FIU. The course spanned over two semesters where I was able to explore Computer Science Education research with the assistance of faculty. I explored different modalities of presenting knowledge and later developed different AR solutions based on them. This course taught me how much I love to build software based on new ideas that helps people learn more effectively.
