A Match Made in EdTech Heaven

Building learning management systems powered by world-leading technology is a priority of an EdTech company with the goal of preparing over 100,000 young people with the life skills to be effective in an ever-changing global landscape. 

EdTech Powered by AWS

Leaders of Evolution’s (LoE) courses that are developing the next generation of leaders aren’t just powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) – but inspired. As a member of the AWS EdStart Accelerator Program, our team at Leaders of Evolution have, and continue to embrace opportunities that stem beyond harnessing best practice AWS infrastructure and architecture.  

“AWS Edstart offers collegiality through a lens that inspires innovation from EdTech trailblazers across the world. As a learning designer and being fiercely passionate about the role education plays in everyone’s lives, it’s motivating to see what other organisations are doing.”

Solving Education Issues

Future Skills of the Workforce e-learning course powered by AWS

The AWS EdStart program is about solving complex educational problems. Research tells us that 65% of children entering primary school will eventually move into a job that doesn’t yet exist, and principals say that equipping students with the skills of the future is one of their most pressing challenges. This is a problem with education at its core, and we are determined to harness our unique pathway of learning for 10 to 18-year-olds with the help of AWS EdStart to solve it. 

As a global provider of online learning to uplift the leadership, life skills and social-emotional learning for students and teachers, we rely on AWS as a critical partner to provide a fast, reliable and secure connection for our learners across the world. This allows us to focus on pedagogy and innovative education practices, knowing the technology side of the business is sound.   

Transcending education beyond traditional methods of delivery, at LoE, we are also dedicated to inspiring learning through sport. We partner with organisations such as Essendon Football Club, South East Melbourne Phoenix and Special Olympics Australia to deliver athlete and coach education, community engagement and developing fan avidity in new and engaging ways. 

The AWS EdStart Accelerator Program

Not only is our learning design and IT department gaining numerous professional development opportunities from our involvement in AWS EdStart, but our Marketing, Sales and Communications teams benefit also.  

LoE Co-founder, Jon Shepherd, has engaged with the AWS EdStart Communications team to share the partnership journey and find innovative ways to harness the relationship.

“The beauty of the program is that it is not focused purely on technology, I’ve been able to engage with the AWS team to help build our brand in ways that provide value to our customers.”

Coming Soon: LoE + AWS EdStart Webinar

An example of this collaborative approach is an upcoming webinar to be delivered in conjunction with AWS in March this year.

“This is a huge opportunity for us as a small business to power with a heavyweight in technology to cross-promote our expertise,” Hecker said.
