FeedbackFruits is an Edtech company, founded in 2012 at TU Delft, the Netherlands, in a forgotten room at the Physics department. It was the experience of re-designing his master’s curriculum in Sustainability Technology that brought our CEO and co-founder Ewoud de Kok to suddenly realize: why does the communication in education have to be a one-way only system?
From this question FeedbackFruits has become a driver of the transformation to active learning at the best universities worldwide.
We are working hard to provide pedagogical tools that help teachers to not only convey knowledge in their courses, but improve students' higher order skills through active participation and organized feedback. Somewhere in the world there are students, teachers, and educational professionals giving their best. For them, our goal is to make every course in the world engaging in the near future.
FeedbackFruits isn’t just changing education. We’re on a mission to create an environment for people to stay true to themselves. What does changing education have to do with staying true to yourself? Here are three stories that explain it.
A ringing phone on a working day: “Hello, this is Harvard!”. Being contacted by one of the world's most prestigious universities when we didn't even have a marketing team, showed us that our fascination with education was shared, and our values are a game changer.
“I am not needed anymore”.
When a CEO comes back from a long absence and is able to say something like that, they know their company is on the right track. This is what happened at FeedbackFruits, where the trust we put in each other is our best practice.
When we meet innovators, they want to create better courses, see their students engaged, and feel proud of their improvements. However, being an innovator might sometimes be misunderstood. Not by us. We will always care about those who care.
