I'm an entrepreneur, most recently with Lore. Starting something new.

  1. Introducing Lore for Students →

    Lore:

    At its core, education is a two-sided community of students and teachers. 

    At Lore we serve both sides. Instructors create a course, manage their schedules and materials, and facilitate a community. Students interact with their classmates, find information they need, complete their work, and learn more. 

    Thousands of courses across every discipline and campus have joined Lore—from “Experimental Poetry” at the University of Pennsylvania to “Organizing for Power” at Harvard. 

    But up until this point, the only way for a student to join Lore was through an invite from their instructor. That’s changing today. From now on, students can join Lore on their own. They can build their learning identity and connect with their academic communities.


    Today, students get access to some major new features:

    • Learning Profile: An online identity designed to highlight what you have learned, what you’re studying, and what your dreams are.  
    • Class Communities: Join classmates in communities formed around your courses—ask questions, share ideas, and get to know each other.
    • Academic Groups: Create and join groups for your academic, interests, graduating class, academic club, or anything else.
    • Follow Interesting People: You can now follow anyone on the network and you’ll get their updates right in the new Dashboard.
    • Messages: Directly contact anyone in your network with real-time messaging.

    We’re rolling out these updates today for the upcoming fall semester. Students will get access after a certain number of people on campus sign up. 

    This rounds off a huge summer for us. The team has been driving non-stop. It’s inspiring to be part of a group of people who believes they can shape the future and reimagine a fundamental part of life. We’re just beginning. 

    Teaching and learning are two sides of the same coin. Everyone is both a teacher and a learner. Our network helps them connect.

    Check it out now.

      I’ve been a fan of what Lore is trying to accomplish for a while. They’re taking the bottom-up approach to learning...
