Happy to announce Erik Ræstad as speaker on our presentation of Nordic EdTech companies, on June 14th. Erik is the managing director of We Video in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He has been part of WeVideo since the establishment of the company back in 2011.
He discovered WeVideo as a former strategy consultant in the media sector, working with digitalization of newspapers. Now, Erik spends most of his time supporting educators and journalists with digital storytelling – as a learning platform or a means to communicate news.
We at the Future Learning Lab discovered WeVideo in California in 2012, not too long after the company was launched. WeVideo is a great Norwegian entrepreneur story! We urge everyone to check out their website and approach to learning. And we look forward to hearing more at the summit. By 2016, WeVideo is a cloud-based collaborative video and visualization tool with millions of users, preferred by Google, Disney and many other global companies.
But it all started at Bryn, in Oslo….
One of the key players is also the founder of the Fronter LMS. No kidding. More on their blog and homepage.
