Dave Schappell, Founder and CEO of TeachStreet joined me for the second time for the fourth episode of review:ed.

We had the following topics on our list:

1) The launch of the iPhone 4 – has it the potential to be a device for online teaching?

2) Textbook Rentals – is Chegg a money printing machine like TechCrunch writes?

3) the Kno – will dedicated devices for education work or will mainstream devices like the iPad win the market?

4) Recent Fundings in online education – Schoology and Lingueo

5) TeachStreet – a turn around from freemium to premium service in 5 steps.
