Who We Are

A Professor, a Programmer, and a Storyteller walk into a bar…

At our core, we believe that everyone who designs and delivers learning deserves to have great software solutions, even if there will not be a million-person user base. We pride ourselves on finding efficient, beautiful, and easy-to-use solutions to deep and complicated issues of learning. We have, and will continue to work relentlessly to build the infrastructure for high-quality curriculum design.

Like many startups, Coursetune was dreamed up first on napkins, then dry erase boards, followed by mockups, videos, demos, late night debates and long weekends.
