- EdCast on Tuesday announced former Creative Commons CEO Catherine Casserly as its new vice president of learning networks.
- A release from the Stanford StartX company touted Casserly's experience as an Aspen Institute fellow and a member of the Technical Working Group, which is developing the 2015 National Education Technology Plan, as well as her previous experience as a Carnegie Foundation VP.
- Casserly also taught math in Jamaica and holds and Economics of Education Ph.D. from Stanford, as well as an honorary doctorate from the UK's Open University.
EdCast has made some waves in the last six months with a $6 million funding round and a food MOOC portal developed for Michigan State using its Knowledge Cloud platform. Casserly's experience should serve the company well as it progresses into 2015 and builds on these developments.
