Ellucian, a global SaaS provider for higher education institutions, is going to create 50 new edtech jobs over the next three years in Dublin. The project is supported by IDA Ireland through the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.
Skillsoft, a leading learning and talent management company, has acquired Vodeclic, a Paris-based edtech startup in the video course space.
Founded in 2007, Vodeclic creates video tutorials for companies, universities and professionals, covering productivity applications like Microsoft Office, Salesforce or social media.
Personalized and adaptive learning are (again) big topics in education technology. Dublin-based ExamTime.com just recently came out of beta and made its learning platform available to the public.
During the beta phase over 600k from 190 countries joined the platform and created over one million learning resources.
