Redwood City, California (PRWEB) May 26, 2016
Today Course Hero, an online learning platform that empowers millions of students and educators to succeed, announced the addition of Dr. Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, to its Advisory Board.
“I’m honored to join the Course Hero Advisory Board,” said Dr. Levine. “As the United States continues to transition from an industrial economy to an information economy, we must ensure all students and teachers, regardless of socio-economic background, have access to learning tools and educational resources designed for the latter. Such resources help provide deep and efficient learning and teaching, while equipping students with the knowledge and skills we look for.”
Prior to his 2006 appointment as the sixth president of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, Dr. Levine was president and professor of education at Teachers College, Columbia University, and previously served as chair of the higher education program, chair of the Institute for Educational Management, and senior lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Dr. Levine has also served as President of Bradford College and Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Foundation and Carnegie Council for Policy Studies in Higher Education.
The author or co-author of ten books and dozens of articles and reviews, Dr. Levine spent several years researching the quality of teacher preparation in the United States and publishing numerous reports on the standards for admission and graduation from teaching programs.
Course Hero’s Advisory Board includes experts in both education and technology, with each member bringing a deeper understanding of the most prevalent challenges faced by students and teachers. With the help of Dr. Levine and the Advisory Board, the Course Hero team is working to address those challenges and enable students to get the most out of their education.
“We’re excited to have Dr. Levine join our team of experts,” said Course Hero CEO Andrew Grauer. “Dr. Levine brings an extensive background in teacher preparation, student engagement, and STEM education. Working side-by-side with educators of his calibre is critical for our success in harnessing the power of technology to address the challenges of teaching and learning.”
