When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, Engageli’s co-founders, Dan Avida and Daphne Koller had a front-row seat to the poor experience most learners faced when their daughters found themselves forced to learn using video conferencing tools intended for business meetings. While they did not enjoy the experience, much worse for vulnerable populations, the use of these tools led to the loss of critically important years of education.
Given their combined experiences in education and technology, Dan and Daphne knew there had to be a better way to drive active learning and engagement in virtual education while fostering community among learners no matter where they were studying.
Engageli's mission is to create superior teaching and learning experiences to optimize success for all. Engageli has donated thousands of hours to institutions in need around the world.
