About This Event

From ideation to launch, developing a product for takes multiple steps and many collaborations along the way. The success of a product lies with the team that is involved with it from start to finish, from its conception to the launch.

In this particular spotlight, we’ll highlight members of the Curriculum Associates team, who create K-8 math and reading Diagnostics and instruction for over 6 million students. Creating a product at such a scale presents unique challenges for product development. We’re bringing in one product manager, designer, and engineer to discuss the process of creating Curriculum Associates’ new educator dashboard, which aims to quickly provide educators with valuable insights to help them improve classroom instruction.

Takeaways

The overall goal of the spotlight series is to get into the details of what it actually takes to build a successful ed tech product. We bring in key members of a single product team to talk in depth about a feature they built - the inspiration for it, the challenges along the way, and the collaboration needed to ship a quality product on time. By focusing on a product feature, we hope to get away from the generalities and take a deep dive into concrete examples and the real nuances of building a product.
