Education startup Literatu made its entry into the market at a time when primary and secondary school stakeholders across the globe began to notice that there was a need for change across the educational landscape
There was an interesting article in The Economist recently stating that everyone living in places like Asia are going to university. In the grand scheme of things, they pretty much are. In a way, education, especially across many parts of Asia is all about improving circumstance. The number one priority is always education in most Asian countries and quite often the second for many is moving from the country they’re in.
One of the fastest growing (and perhaps most under-recognised) EdTech startups in Australia is Literatu. Founded by Sydney-based entrepreneur Mark Stanley, Literatu has experienced tremendous growth, particularly in Asia. Literatu’s user count grew eight-fold from around 5,000 in early 2014 to over 42,000 by December 2014.
Launched in January 2013, Australian EdTech startup Literatu is set to change the way educators teach, without altering their pedagogy. The startup – which was a finalist in the US-based 2014 EdTech Digest Awards in the New Product and Assessment Solution categories, and winner in the Reporting Solution category – makes the collection of data from the ‘bottom up’ not only possible, but simple.
