Leading Lifelong Learning (Jeff Cobb)

  • Episode #100

After diverting from a path toward a PhD and professorship, Jeff Cobb discovered the huge demand for online education. He started a company to teach experts the ins and outs of online courses and discovered his personal definition of making it.

Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it. 

Jeff Cobb is the founder of Learning Revolution, an online course and education platform that teaches experts how to transform themselves into “edupreneurs.”

“We think we know what our customers want. We think we know what our employees want. We just think we know. And we don’t. And sometimes we need to… shut up. And listen.”
