Eton Online Ventures
Eton College has set up a new company, Eton Online Ventures, to work with technologists, educators and entrepreneurs to develop new approaches to education. We will be using Eton's experience of educational change and development alongside modern technology to bring exciting and effective new products to the online marketplace.
Eton believes the time is ripe for edupreneurs to develop ways to use technology to challenge fundamentally the traditional methods of teaching and learning rather than simply providing enhanced learning support. Eton believes in the power of technology to transform the delivery of education and educational outcomes for students worldwide by
facilitating collaborative learning, encouraging students to appreciate the importance of teamwork and the contribution that others can make
fostering self-confidence, enthusiasm, perseverance, and respect for the individual.
