2U partners with top-tier universities to deliver rigorous, selective graduate degree and undergraduate for-credit programs online. Founded in 2008 by John Katzman and a team of education veterans, the company provides universities with the technologies, infrastructural support and capital they need to transform their on-campus programs into high-quality, web-based programs. 2U is one of the highest-funded education technology start-ups in the United States.
Have you noticed? "Edtech" seems to be steaming HOT these days. The space is on fire partly due to the steamy and HOT MOOCS that are all the rage! But don't visit and expect to find a MOOC, because 2U and its partner programs are not MOOCs. (Four points to you, if you know what we're talking about.) 2U is about high quality graduate degree and for-credit online programs. Also if you like HOT roof decks overlooking the Hudson, you should probably visit us.
Note: Enter near the entrance of Pier 60 through the glass doors and go up the elevator.
