East Lansing, MI – CourseWeaver, an educational software company based out of East Lansing, MI has announced today that it has been selected to present at the sixth annual ASU+GSV Summit as a chance to share with the educational technology community its vision for online learning.
“We’re really excited to be selected as a presenter at one of the greatest gatherings of Ed Tech minds in the world,” said CourseWeaver CEO Rob Fulk. “The incredible wealth of knowledge and ideas that this summit brings together really generates excitement and spurs innovation for the future of education and technology.”

“Each year at the Summit, we provide a platform for smart startups with disruptive innovation at their core like CourseWeaver,” said Deborah Quazzo, founder and managing partner of GSV Advisors. “CourseWeaver’s aim to fundamentally transform the education delivery chain is critical to our shared goal of overcoming age-old hurdles of access and equality to help the world more effectively teach and learn.”
GSV (NASDAQ: GSVC) is dedicated to helping education entrepreneurs and growth companies connect with value-added, strategic investors and partners to enable their ideas to become the next market-leading businesses. Rather than a manufacturing focus, GSV is focused on the Education champions of today and tomorrow—the pioneers of technology, intellectual property, communities and social marketplaces, innovative learning environments and institutions and influencers of academic policy. GSV stands for “Global Silicon Valley”—emphasizing its belief that Silicon Valley is no longer just a physical place, but also a mindset that has gone viral.
CourseWeaver’s next-generation learning platform combines the features of Learning/Course Management Systems (LMS/CMS) with adaptive assessment tools, powerful data analytics, OERs/MOOCs, publisher e-books, e-course packs and an integrated global content marketplace. CW’s vision is for the content to be completely integrated into its platform, pushing past the boundaries of simple e-book/e-coursepack initiatives.
The global marketplace allows independent authors, educators and instructors to author, publish and sell educational content alongside commercial publishers and open-source materials; empowering instructors to share, sell and use the best resources available globally. The system includes powerful tools that permit educators to easily create blended or flipped classrooms and completely personalized learning environments.
