Outlier is a new education company founded by Aaron Rasmussen, the co-founder of the successful education company Master Class. In many ways, Outlier is built on Aaron’s experience at Master Class, which uses celebrity experts and very high production value to teach subjects like cooking and filmmaking. In building that company, Aaron learned how to make extremely compelling education content. With Outlier, he’s using these techniques to go after higher education, offering subjects like Calculus. He has worked with a sponsor university to offer Outlier courses with accreditation, allowing students who pay by the academic unit to use Outlier, improve their experience, learn at their own pace, and save money.
