Outcomes

What we're working on and thinking about at HotChalk

Outcomes is the official HotChalk blog about education technology: what it is, what it isn't, and, most importantly, what "EdTech" should be. We're tech savvy but not tech driven: we measure our success by the outcomes we help traditional nonprofit universities achieve. Every day we learn something new about what works – and what doesn't – in higher education technology. And if you learn with us, that's an outcome that benefits everyone. At HotChalk, we believe that EVERY MIND MATTERS™.
