Future PLC Announces the Launch of New Higher Ed Tech Brand Tech & Learning University


NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Future plc (LSE: FUTR), the global platform for specialist media, today announces the launch of a new higher education technology website, Tech & Learning University (www.techlearninguniversity.com).

Keeping in the tradition of reporting excellence of Future brands like TechRadar, PC Gamer, and Tech & Learning, Tech & Learning University covers the hottest topics in higher ed today  from esports to cloud to data & security  to give higher ed tech directors the information they need to support instruction through the meaningful use of technology.

Dr. Margot Douaihy, Tech & Learning University’s Contributing Editor, said:
“It’s a time of dramatic change in higher ed. Tech & Learning University will be a vital media ecosystem for higher education stakeholders—technologists, instructional designers, integrators, faculty, and staff—who want to learn, share, adopt innovative pedagogies, and transform their campuses. As college tuition increases and student enrollment fluctuates, smarter tools and strategies can help schools stay resilient.”

In addition to the launch of Tech & Learning University, the 40 year-old Edtech brand Tech & Learning (www.techlearning.com) is relaunching to expand on its mission to be the authoritative voice for the latest and greatest “Tools and Ideas for K-12 EdTech Leaders,” by expanding both the scope and breadth of its education technology coverage.

Kevin Hogan, Tech & Learning’s Content Director, said:
“Ten years ago, the focus of implementing technology in schools was very ‘top down’—the school district leaders decided what sort of curriculum software to install on desktops, what equipment to outfit every classroom, etc. Today, every educator needs to know about these technologies. They are also more likely empowered to make those purchasing decisions on their own. The relaunched techlearning.com helps both the district administrators and teachers understand how to use technology to drive innovation.”

The launch of TechLearningUniversity.com, coupled with the relaunch of TechLearning.com, ensures Future’s Education Group will remain the go-to resource for education technology news, reviews, and insights.
