David Lefevre
Director of the Edtech Lab at Imperial College Business School


I am director of the Edtech Lab at the Imperial College Business School which I help create in 2005. Our team has overseen a substantial increase in the use of educational technology at the School and currently delivers around 180 online courses a year to Imperial College students. We launched our Global Online MBA programme in 2015 and an online degree in Business Analytics in 2018. Recently the team received a silver award for Business Education at the 2018 QS Reimagine Education conference.

More recently, our team continues to play a pivotal role in managing our School’s response to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I was co-founder and now president of the Imperial College eLearning spin-out firm Epigeum (now a successful part of the Oxford University Press) and in 2018 I helped launch Insendi , a spin-out firm from the Edtech Lab focused on online learning platforms.
