Katie Egan

Co-Founder and CEO
Washington D.C. Metro Area
Like most professionals involved in the development of learning solutions, Katie Egan started her career as a dedicated teacher. As she progressed in her career as an educator, she realized that she could have the greatest impact on the lives of students by empowering other teachers to integrate better methods and technologies in their classrooms. 20 years later, Katie has been responsible for countless successful course development efforts, having a significant impact on students and organizations.

Katie’s interest in designing engaging and high quality online learning, led her to UMBC where she earned her Masters in Instructional Design in 2004. It is at UMBC that Katie first met Bethany Meyer, an information systems student, who at a young age, had a passion for solving problems with technology.

After spending years trying to find the right course authoring solution, Katie and Bethany decided to build their own tool, which they called CourseArc. CourseArc is a comprehensive solution to the problems they encountered with existing tools on the market which are difficult to use, not fully accessible, require downloaded software, have expensive single license pricing, don’t allow collaboration, and make it difficult to establish and follow consistent design patterns while developing a course.

In addition to serving as the CEO of CourseArc, Katie is passionate about encouraging young girls to code and embrace technology. Katie is the co-founder of HowGirlsCode, a nonprofit, which offers after school technology programs for elementary school-aged girls. Katie regularly speaks to and mentors young girls about the opportunities available to women in technology.
