What is FacultyRow?
FacultyRow is a private network of accomplished academics and educators from different parts of the globe. Our platform allows qualified individuals the ability to connect and collaborate with like minded peers.
The FacultyRow team takes time each day to educate its community. This is done by broadcasting and posting relevant breaking news, articles, research, and videos. We encourage FacultyRow members to "Weigh in" on current events and breaking news.
Why Should I join?
Faculty Row is committed to providing tools, resources, and most importantly, the network that fosters and promotes positive change in education. We find ourselves at the bleeding edge of this change and in the vanguard as we expose weakness in the old models of education, the mounting student debt, and work to employ disruptive technologies. Our mission is to advocate for the democratization of education and knowledge everywhere and to completely revolutionize how we learn.
What is happening in Higher Ed?
It is 2013 - There are many education based experiments taking place around the globe. These experiments are focused on technologies that will make teaching and learning as efficient and affordable as possible. The FacultyRow team encourages leading academics and educators to focus on their personal brand.
There are still many unknown variables of how traditional education evolves. We continually try and predict them, however it is extremely difficult to do. We do know that smart phones and tablets, will continue to play a key in the globalization of education.
A few examples of common "experiments" with affordable or free education:
EDx (an extension of the expired MITx)
TED Ed (an extension of TED Talks)
Sal Khan's, Khan Academy
Daphne Koller & Andrew Ng's, Coursera

How do I personalize and add features to my profile?
If you scroll down past the Profile Information section on your profile page, you will find a section called “text box.” Click on the “add text” link to personalize this section any way you want. For example, you can add a profile about yourself or your school, advertisements for your business, or third party widgets. Add links and images using the buttons at the top of the text box, and don’t forget to give the section a title! The title you choose will show up in the yellow bar on your profile page instead of “text box.” If you are an html wiz, you can do a lot with this section.
Can anyone see my private information on my profile?
No. Any information with a lock next to it is private and can be seen only by yourself and the FacultyRow web team. However, you can view what is displayed publicly on your FacultyRow webpage.

How do I add someone as my friend once I am logged into FacultyRow?
Find the person you would like to add as a friend and click on their profile or photo. There is an “add as friend” link under their profile photo. Click on that. A confirmation window will pop up with an optional “add a personal message” link if you’d like to send the person a note. Some people don’t feel comfortable accepting friend requests from people they don’t know, so this is a great way to let them know how you might know each other or why you’d like to be friends.
