How EDeeU EDucation works
You can learn anything from books borrowed from your local library and free or low-cost online resources. However people who try learning independently frequently find themselves not knowing which resources to choose. It's also hard to stay motivated, and when you get stuck it can be hard to make progress without support. Finally, independent learners need a way to show the world what they've learned.
At EDeeU Education we solve all these problems by allowing you to find a Director of Studies whose job it is to guide you through your chosen field using free and low-cost resources. Their job is to help you choose the right books and online resources, give you feedback on your work and help you when you get stuck. Our Directors of Studies come from both academia and industry and have backgrounds in all subjects and disciplines.
EDeeU Education works on a subscription model of $330 per month. You can stop at any time, which means you're never in the situation where you feel trapped in a learning environment that isn't working for you.
My goal is to help students learn practical software engineering, with a focus on web development. I can guide you in learning the fundamentals of frontend and backend web development, and then help you come up with interesting projects to develop your skills further and add to your portfolio. I will review your code and give feedback on both your technical level and clean coding practices.
I love to learn, teach, create, and repeat. After earning my BS and MS in Computer Science from USC, I went on to jobs in the tech industry. My first role was at Google, where I taught developers how to use the Google Maps API. I then went to Coursera, where I wrote much of the original student-facing website code. I missed teaching, so I joined Khan Academy after that and created all of their online Computer Programming courses. I was most recently CTO at Woebot, where I rewrote the chatbot code from scratch and helped build the engineering team.
How you get Credit for your Learning
There is no better way for you to show what you're capable of than by showing your work to the world directly. For that reason we assign no grades and instead help you build the best possible portfolio of work. This process not only reduces stress and anxiety due to being over-tested and over-graded, but it also gives you the space to think deeply about what you are learning and explore questions that don't have quick or simple answers.
To support our portfolio-based approach, we built edeeu.com, a portfolio-based transcript for you to showcase your work. It's free to use for everyone. For an example of what kind of portfolio you can build with EDeeU Education, see edeeu.com/kasie. Your EDeeU portfolio is always free and always under your 100% control.
