As you might know already: eduFire is famous for using guerilla marketing strategies to spread the word about their platform. With the recent implementation of two little buttons they help you, the teacher, to spread the news about your courses on two of the biggest social networks on the net: facebook and Twitter.
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.
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.
I took some days off and headed down south to Bordeaux just to relax a bit and sort some thoughts I came up with in the past couple of weeks.
There will be a recap of my trip in my private blog “My Brittany“. If you are interested how I spent my free time, you can have a look over there . And there will be a professionel recap of my decisions in this blog here, of course.
Last sunday eduFire.com was hosting the second eduConference under the headline “Turning Teachers into Rockstars”. This great and inspirational meeting was followed up by a very interesting and even a bit frightening presentation of Jon Bischke, CEO of eduFire.com who talked about “Connected Consumership“.
The approach is quite unique. The only website that can offer the teacher paid classes with more than one student is WiZiQ.com. The problem with WiZiQ.com is though that the scheduling system is a bit tricky.
