Hello all!
As a reminder from last week, this is the newest edition of my newsletter. The content of this newsletter will be similar to what you’ve received in the past. However, the goal with this rebrand is to provide more flexibility with what I share.
Some things I’m thinking about this week:

1. Introducing Taptive
I’m excited to announce Taptive. This is my first public launch of the rebrand, and I’m thrilled to share some of the vision with you.
I’ve been working in the background for the past few months to understand what I’ve learned in the past year running MyMBA and The Tech Progressive.
The result is Taptive.
Taptive helps writers write by running cohort-based writing programs for companies and online communities.
Let’s break it down:
⏰ Cohort-Based: I’ve learned that cohort-based learning is the best way to learn on the internet. Given my experience running these cohort-based programs, I understand the nuance of running an effective program.
✏️ Writing Programs: As I noted in my most recent post, The Idea Maze: How MyMBA Helped Build The Tech Progressive, I learned that writing with a community was the most beneficial aspect of our programs.
🌐 Companies and Online Communities: We’ve seen significant demand for professionally run cohort-based writing programs within companies and communities. We’ve had initial talks with 5 organizations looking to use Taptive (more updates to come!).
2. Transcend Fellowship #07
I was recently accepted into Transcend Fellowship #07. I’m joining 30 other edtech founders from around the world in building the future of learning and work.
Even one week in, it’s been an amazing experience. I’ve had the opportunity to meet founders with the same struggles and ambitions.
On a more meta level, Transcend proves the power of cohort-based, community based learning.
Transcend Network
Happy LOVE day, & a special day to welcome the Transcend Fellowship #07 Fellows! 💕💕💕

We are thrilled to unveil the 30 chosen founders representing 12 countries, building the future of learning and work. 💫

Take a peek at their works & say hello! 👀 👋 https://t.co/sipqr5WcC7
3. Online Education
David Perell writes a great thread on the future of online education. You should definitely check out the whole thread, but he makes a great point on the potential of community learning.
Community learning on the internet has completely changed in the past 5 years. We’re now more comfortable than ever getting on Zoom and building relationships with people entirely on the internet.
My prediction: online education will experiment with countless iterations/models of community-based learning.

5. Community learning will make a comeback.

So far, online education has been great for self-motivated learners. But most people need a social group to hold them accountable. The top schools of tomorrow will build strong communities and alumni networks, just like a university.
Thank you for reading!
Have a great weekend and talk to you next week.
Best,
Grant
