While COVID-19 has changed how we work, it’s certainly up-ending how we think of learning. Shifts in Micro-learning and more have been taking place preCOVID and now edutech startups are frontline investor focus. 

The latest, a Singapore based startup, Emeritus, used by some of the world’s top universities and other educational institutions for online courses, raised USD$650 million in a funding round led by SoftBank Group.

Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg’s charity is a current investor.
