Aimed at individuals and organizations looking to gain insight and involvement in the business growth and opportunity that the education technology industry has to offer, the EdTech for Export Conference, eT4e, aims to kick-start a collaborative EdTech sector for New Zealand.
The EdTech Conference will identify export success stories, provide global EdTech world views, and lead discussions on potential funding and business development support.
Richard Wyles, CEO of Totara LMS and co-founder of Kineo Pacific, will be leading a discussion on collaboration and building a global partner network. Totara LMS, an open source distribution of Moodle, was conceived when three partners- Catalyst IT, Kineo and the Flexible Learning Network (now Kineo Pacific), came together with a mutual passion for delivering cost effective solutions to corporate enterprises and the government sector. Now, with offices around the world, Richard will discuss how the company developed the global Totara Partner Network and how these partnerships led to Totara LMS products and services being available in over 29 countries.
With experience in Kineo Pacific’s expansion into Australia alongside the global network of Kineo offices in the US, Europe, Asia and Middle East, Director and co-Founder of Kineo Pacific, Nolen Smith will be on a panel of experts at EdTech, discussing what it takes to do business offshore. Nolen, together with the panel, will reveal tips on what resources such as skills and funding, are available to assist those ready to embark on the EdTech export journey.

We’re looking forward to sharing our experience of establishing learning technology-focused businesses and growing them into successful ‘EdTech Exporters’.”
