About Us

About the EdTech Network

The Penn State EdTech Network promotes active collaboration among companies, students, faculty, staff, and alumni to foster the development of transformational educational technology. We support the continuous growth of Penn State World Campus, the educational technology work going on throughout Penn State, and the global online learning community. 

We're part of Penn State President Eric Barron's $30 million Invent Penn State initiative, which aims to drive job creation, economic development, and student career success by connecting researchers and innovators with the people who can help bring their discoveries to the marketplace. 

"Penn State is developing a culture that encourages, nurtures, and rewards entrepreneurship, not just in STEM, but in the arts, health and human development, education, and more."

—Eric Barron, Penn State President
