Online education with a human touch
20 years ago, we saw the signs for educational transformation. Technology was changing – impacting many professions with education being one of them. We were excited to be a part of this emerging landscape.
Over the past two decades, there have been failures and successes that we have learned from. This has brought us to where we are today: a global team of more than 850 employees, thousands of alumni and returning students.
One of the most important lessons learned is that combining a small classroom approach with the dynamic nature of online education brings real results. Through in-depth market research, we translate our programs and courses into 9 languages. By adapting content to cultures and offering small teacher-led classes, we guide the student on their journey to success.
We have built a solid foundation that enables growth across our various schools, our employees and, ultimately, our students. Our vision is to expand our business through collaboration with ed-tech professionals and developing new schools.
Education is powerful. Learning new skills never stops. Knowledge works best when put into practice.
Yariv and Boaz
Here’s how we’ve done it
A new adventure
Two brothers, Yariv and Boaz Binnun, left their jobs in the media and technology industries and formed eTeacher Group.
K-12 tutoring goes online
We started with online and face-to-face tutoring services. By partnering with schools and local Israeli municipalities we reached over 1 million students!
International language training
We got a contract with the Israeli Foreign Ministry to establish an online school teaching Hebrew to the children of Israeli delegates worldwide.
Hebrew courses for all
After the success of our government partnership, our Hebrew language course goes public, and we sign up 250 students in the first year.
Rosen School of Hebrew
The school is established in honor of the founders’ grandfather, Aharon Rosen, a pioneer of Hebrew teaching. The school focused on teaching adults and reached tens of thousands of students worldwide.
Expanding language teaching
We launched Highway to English and eTeacher Chinese. With English teachers from the USA and Chinese teachers from Beijing, our marketshare increased.
Israel Institute of Biblical Studies
IIBS launched in collaboration with Dr. Ohad Cohen from the Hebrew University. Courses cover Biblical languages as well as general Biblical studies.
Entering new markets
We start a global marketing approach, by translating our courses for the Spanish, French and Russian markets.
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
After an extensive reviewing process, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem accredited certain IIBS courses – a great accomplishment!
Expanding into Brazil
We translated our content (sales, marketing, software etc.) to Portuguese and launched in Brazil. The South American market soon grew exponentially.
Reaching the South Korean market
eTeacher Group launched in South Korea by expanding into franchising. The franchisee gained access to our content and software in order to adapt courses for Korean students.
Coding for Kids
eTeacher Group merged with “Think Different” – a coding institution for kids. With a pedagogical approach to teach kids soft skills beyond coding, the institution stood out in the market.
Tekkie Uni launches
Building on the success achieved in Israel, we launched our online coding courses in France, South America, US, and the UK, teaching children around the world to code, create, and invent.
Tekkie Uni goes STEAM
With the success of our coding programs, we expanded our curriculum to include STEAM subjects. Robotics, video production, animation, chess and app development are launched.
Tekkie Uni expands
Tekkie Uni took its learning beyond courses and class time, offering an Innovation Lab that allowed students to develop their own projects.
Introducing asynchronous studies
We expanded on the success of Israel Institute of Biblical Studies by offering asynchronous, subscription-based online courses as developed by Israel Bible Center.
Langaroo - English for Kids
We realized the need for one-on-one English courses for children. Langaroo specializes in private, online lessons for children aged 5 – 11 taught by certified, native-speaking English teachers.
