“The merger brings together our industry’s best in rich media with the best of crowdsourced collaboration and content, all with the goal of building Higher Ed Live/EDUniverse into an even more useful platform for the higher education industry,” writes Odell in his announcement of the merger. Michael Stoner also wrote about this merger, promising that he and the mStoner group are “going to work very closely with them to ensure that Higher Ed Live becomes even more dynamic and inspiring — and that it becomes more relevant than ever.”
For now, the sites will continue to operate independently as the mStoner team and the Higher Ed Live team determine how to best bring these two sites together. But I’m sure we can expect some big things to happen — and soon — as a result of this new venture.
Congratulations to Seth, Michael and everyone else who was involved in making this happen.
