LectureMonkey Manifesto Part 1

First part of the video explaining the LectureMonkey manifesto:


  • At LectureMonkey we believe that lectures will continue to be the main pedagogical approach in college – and we want to help students help themselves and their classmates get the most out of their lectures.
  • Lectures are valuable because they provide students targeted, tailored and local learning content along with peer and expert interaction making classrooms invaluable social learning communities. There is no replacement for students going to class.
  • The problem with lecture content is that it is too short-lived, disappearing after an hour. A lifespan of a semester or two is probably just right for most lectures.
  • By providing a platform for crowd sourced universal lecture capture, annotation and access LectureMonkey will fundamentally change learning.



About Jacob Ukelson

blog (mostly) about my work and technology. So far I have been lucky enough to have been working on things I consider fun and with really top notch people. I have worked in both large companies (IBM) and small companies (ActionBase, ConicIT, Dapper, eXeedTechnologies). eXeed was establish to remedy a failure of the VC model in Israel – most VCs were monetary investors, but most companies needed not just money – they needed operational and business guidance. That is what we provide at eXeed – not just an investment but also our time and skills as seasoned software executives. I have taken on various titles – CTO, VP Products, VP BizDev – but throughout my career a constant focus has been on technologymarket fit, aka customer development. Unique breakthrough technology is a start, but the product must solve real business problems. It needs to be something customers can understand, relate to and will want to buy. I have been doing this for 20 years for software products in companies both large and small.
