Participate’s CoPs are collaborative spaces that engage community members in online or blended learning experiences around an organization’s educational goals. Communities can be used to scale an organization’s reach, build professional learning experiences, train members virtually and grow organizational initiatives.
“The Participate team includes an impressive group of former educators, instructional designers and education researchers all working together with a “breakthrough” concept around community-based online learning that makes professional learning significantly more engaging and meaningful,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “Participate’s innovative vision and product execution propel them to our ‘EdTech Startup of the Year’ designation and we want to heartily congratulate everyone at Participate for this well-deserved 2020 EdTech Breakthrough Award.”
