About Us

Here, you'll learn more about what's behind E-Student - its mission, team members, and methodology.

What is E-Student?

E-Student is a website and source of information for students who want to further their education through electronic channels such as online courses and online degrees. Online education is currently going through rapid stages of development and we’re excited to help our readers utilize the many advantages of self-paced, student-centered, location-independent, and cost-effective education. And, we’re just as excited to help our readers avoid many of the pitfalls of online education that often go unnoticed.

What we do

E-Student publishes e-learning content in the form of informational posts, analytical articles, reviews, and online course round-ups. Our mission is to create a community of online students and educators where all parties involved in e-learning can share their experiences, make better-informed purchasing decisions, and contribute towards making online education a greater force for good in the world. We hope to fulfill this mission by providing journalism that is trustworthy, authoritative, reliable, and unbiased.

Our methodology

E-Student derives its authority from its expert authors who have deep knowledge of technology and education. Our credibility is further secured by our comprehensive review methodology that evaluates various key features of e-learning products such as the price-to-quality ratio, comprehensiveness, user-friendliness, online reputation, transparency, retention rates, and more. Our tried-and-tested review methodology ensures that all E-Student publications stay unbiased and consistent despite any affiliations with online education providers.

Our Team

Sander Tamm

Sander Tamm

Founder

Sander is the founder of E-Student and an avid e-learner. He earned a traditional degree in the field of medicine, before shifting entirely from textbooks to digital education. He has spent thousands of hours learning online since then, and these experiences are what led to the inception of E-Student. Despite being an advocate for e-learning, he criticizes some aspects of the industry such as social isolation, too much focus on video-based content, and the thoughtless reconceptualization of traditional degrees into digital.
