Engageli Raises $33 Million Series A to Scale Its Hyped Instructional Platform, Plans to Go Live for the Fall Semester

Engageli on May 11 reported it had raised a Series A funding round worth $33 million. While the online instruction platform has not announced any clients or institutional deployments, it has been piloted for months and the company says it will be used to teach higher education students more broadly as soon as this coming fall semester.

A common refrain in education circles points out that videoconferencing services like Zoom and Microsoft Teams, which many continue to use to teach online courses, were never designed for instruction. Engageli aims to correct that. Its online instruction platform contains dozens, if not hundreds, of features that were crafted specifically for educators to educate and for learners to learn.

“Basically, the biggest arguments we have engaged in is what features not to put in,” said Engageli CEO Dan Avida over videoconference on the Engageli platform. “We’re all good at coming up with different features. But we also designed it to be clear, to-the-point, and easy to adopt.”
