It truly is fantastic to see the passion and professionalism that the Ublend team puts into developing a communication platform for education that is fit for purpose. The calibre of the Ublend team is second to none.

Having taught at multiple universities (Oxford, INSEAD, UCL, Harvard) I had to struggle with the dinosaurs of the e-learning environment (Moodle and Blackboard). The time is ripe for disruptive innovation and bringing online class room communications into the 21st century. Like most of my colleagues I have found the current platforms to be burdensome rather than helpful. The Ublend platform on the other hand is intuitive, sleek, and easy-to-use.

Importantly, the Ublend platform not only enhances class room discussions but also lowers the workload of faculty for the following two reasons. First, Ublend cleverly leverages the 'wisdom of the crowds' present among the students. Second, it groups questions in digest form reducing the need for inefficient 1-to-1 e-mailing.
