Fierce Education Article Outlines New Features of Packback Instruct and Successful Course Implementation
In a recent article from Fierce Education, Peggy Bresnick connected with Packback’s co-founder Jessica Tenuta for an overview of the features of Packback Instruct, the newest add-on for Packback. Bresnick also spoke to Ayana Jamieson, Ph.D. about how she has found success with the platform in her courses.
This spring Packback released two new features; Feed Sorting and Section Small Groups. Packback CPO Jessica Tenuta shares how these new features improve the visibility of online discussions and help students discover trending posts and unanswered questions.
Every day, team members at Packback are inspired by our mission to fuel the lifelong curiosity in every student. We believe curiosity and asking questions are the building blocks for students to become successful, both in college and after graduation.
Packback Takes on $1.5M in New Funding Including Strategic Investments from University Ventures and ICG Ventures
Packback adds $1.5 million of new capital with participation from industry strategic investors as the Chicago-based education technology company doubles its user-base since the last semester and anticipates over 70,000 new students at 50+ universities using the service throughout the academic year.
Our cofounder, Jessica Tenuta spoke at TEDxNormal 2015 about the critical importance of cultivating curiosity in education. We believe that every great innovation is born out of a great question…but students are being taught to answer questions in school, not ask them.
