In this product team spotlight, we’ll highlight Peergrade, a company that over the past four years has taken feedback from thousands of instructors to create Eduflow, a platform for instructors to provide students with more engaging and custom learning experiences. During this panel, David and Simon, CEO and Chief Product Officer of Peergrade, respectively, will sit down to chat about what they’ve learned through building and iterating on Peergrade. More specifically, we’ll dive into how they leveraged feedback from Peergrade to develop Eduflow and highlight some key decisions they made to help ensure Eduflow will be successful.
This is the first in what we hope to be a series of product team spotlights throughout the year! The overall goal of the spotlight series is to get into the details of what it actually takes to build a successful ed tech product. For each event, we’ll bring in key members of a single product team to talk in depth about a feature they built - the inspiration for it, the challenges along the way, and the collaboration needed to ship a quality product on time. By focusing on a product feature, we hope to get away from the generalities and take a deep dive into concrete examples and the real nuances of building a product.
