Grasple – Speaker: Pim Bellinga
Grasple is a social enterprise with the mission to make knowledge as openly accessible as possible. To achieve that, we have developed an online editor- and practice platform that teachers in higher education use to find and edit open exercises (on math and statistics) and share them with students so they can practice with direct feedback. https://www.grasple.com
LeerLevels – Speaker: Youssef El Bouhassani
LeerLevels is an online learning platform for truly personalized learning. A combination of a curriculum built around fine-meshed learning objectives and artificial intelligence makes it possible to deliver exactly what a student needs at that moment. http://leerlevels.nl
Feedbackfruits – Speaker: Annika Borgstede
FeedbackFruits’ mission is to support teachers in facilitating learning activities that spark active thinking. With partnering universities in the EdTech consortium, FeedbackFruits facilitates the network and software to share and co-create new innovative learning activities together. https://www.feedbackfruits.com
