“In everything we do as a company, Shmoop aims to present learners of all ages with engaging, enriching content and opportunities, and media partnerships present an additional avenue for achieving this objective,” said Ellen Siminoff, President and CEO of Shmoop. “Learning should be fun and should take place both inside the classroom and out in the world.

Aimed at identifying and showcasing talented teens to the media industry, FusEd is a student-driven content network designed to help learners enhance their digital skills while generating major funding and donations for high school media and athletic departments. FusEd provides teams of students ages 13-18 with the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience and submit multimedia projects to a variety of contests hosted by large entertainment and media companies that are seeking fresh digital and social media concepts that resonate with high school audiences. One of FusEd’s initial contests features Powerade, a division of Coca-Cola, and challenges students’ storytelling abilities by asking them to share why their school’s athletic program deserves $10,000.
“To ensure FusEd is positioned to deliver results for students, we desire to reach audiences of talented teens who have great ideas and a desire to create. Shmoop is an ideal partner through which to reach an excellent audience who will benefit from participating in our film and graphic design community,” said Tom Cadez, CEO of The FusEd Network. “Shmoop’s base of users, due to the tremendous educational value and entertaining nature of the site’s content, have proven to be a highly engaged group of students who will have great success in creative opportunities such as the ones we offer.”
Shmoop aims to provide its users with the best content, presented with the learner’s needs in mind. This is why the company “speaks student,” remaining mindful of the fact that learning is supposed to be fun for both the instructor and the learner. Media partnerships provide Shmoop with the opportunity to enhance the user experience by presenting more avenues for hands-on 21st century learning, and give partners the chance to reach an unparalleled community of engaged students, educators, and other adult learners.
