Empowering millions of students and educators every month.
A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad. - Theodore Roosevelt
Education Labs reaches over one million students and prospective students every month, connecting them with the learning opportunities they seek.
Many of the world’s top universities have begun bringing their materials to the world, for free, online. A recent study shows that that these courses aren’t reaching their intended audience in the way they had hoped. Education Labs properties help aid in the online discovery of these open courses.
Despite the advances in open online education, there is still a long ways to go before it can even begin to replace traditional degree programs. Because of this, Education Labs properties exist to help students decide both what to study and where to study.
Online offerings have continued to improve through both government regulation of for profit institutions and the movement of many established brick and mortar universities online. Unfortunately a majority of these sites are deceiving, and don’t clearly label their sponsored content or ads. Education Labs properties aim to fix that through clearly marked advertising and unbiased editorial.
Through the use of data that would otherwise be unavailable in aggregate, 7 Labs properties help students find the schools that are best suited for them.
The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts. - C.S. Lewis

We are located in Seattle, Washington. A small team of managers, education analysts, content creators, and developers make up Education Labs.
Education Labs set out to answer the question: “How can students leverage technology to receive a superior education?”
In the beginning, we started by launching media properties that allowed audiences to learn academic subjects online for free. Eventually this success led Education Labs to focus its efforts within the larger space of online formal education.
The next products we designed were created with college students in mind. We looked for ways to discover the most reputable programs available online from real accredited universities. And in every program we recommended, it had the same curriculum and faculty used in the campus versions—something we all felt confident getting behind.
Education Labs now develops properties to help new students understand the online education landscape, connecting them to free college courses, nationally recognized professors and both online and traditional universities. Our hope is enable students to reach their education goals by using every technological advantage possible.
