eduFire.com is famous for its Guerilla Marketing Strategies which are really effective, by the way. I think basically 90% of eduFire’s marketing is done with those strategies and and driven by the enthusiasm of their community.
The newest idea comes from Kareem, one of the eduFire founders and is already known as “the new education revolution on Twitter” between eduFire teachers.
A few days ago I received an email from Toffler Niemuth of italki.com about their announcement of launching a language tutoring marketplace on their site.
Back in january I already did a brief post about this platform but I think they are a decent alternative to Myngle.com and eduFire.com which are in the same market segment for the asian and indian sector. Therefore, lets have a look what italki offers to teachers and students.
And finally this morning I saw the following tweet of Jon Bischke, CEO of eduFire.com:
Ok, this tweet might just be a joke, it probably is but still I think there is some kind of a trend towards teaming up between different companies in the education sector which can complement each other. Or is it to beef up for a weak economy in 2009 and to show some muscles to the competitors?
Sunday, March 8th 2009. A truly historic day for the online education sector. This day will be remembered as the day the first group lesson on Myngle.com took place while on eduFire.com the first participant took part in a lesson from 30.000 feet above the ground!
We are living in great times, no, in important times! Thanks to the internet education can tear down the last barriers and you can be a part of it.
This topic rumored around amongst the teachers in the Myngle forum for a while.
On saturday Marina Tognetti, CEO of Myngle announced officially that there is such a waiting list for new signed in teachers.
And today Elisa Delaini, the education manager of Myngle, explained in the Myngle blog how the waiting list works and how it will affect new teachers on Myngle.
