Daniel McKelvey developed a passion for education from his father and has since developed a career in educational technology working with the personalized learning company, EdCast.
Growing up, Daniel McKelvey remembers his father putting a tremendous amount of precedence on high school and college and doing one’s best. He and his siblings were always encouraged to work hard on their studies and really focus on their educational goals. However, they were also taught that there education does not end once they graduate college. In fact, needs for education even increase in many ways after one graduates from college and enters the real world. When starting your first job, you will likely have a ton to learn and adjust to. While mentors and job training will help get you started on the right track, you will still need to continually build and enhance your skills to gain success and to avoid becoming obsolete.
With this passion and mindset, Daniel McKelvey joined EdCast to help other individuals develop their own passions and motivations for expanding their knowledge and experiences.
Thanks to growing technology and the Internet, access to knowledge has become universal and virtually free. Global access to education through technology helps drive true innovation and break down any geographical, societal, or other barriers for individuals trying to gain access to education to start their own business, make a career chance, or explore new topics just for fun.
EdCast uses educational technology to provide solutions to corporations and their employees to help them continually build and grow their knowledge base. The company provides learning experience solutions powered by artificial intelligence that delivers relevant knowledge personalized and contextualized to the specific user’s interests, skills, and responsibilities.
Working at EdCast, Daniel McKelvey has stood as the VP of Sales and Business Development. He has been responsible for all sales, marketing, and account management strategies among other roles. He has also completed many presentations and webinars on educational technology and other related topics including social learning, SME learning, content discovery, informal learning, and beyond.
