His project, Illume Research, is precisely about that, a technologically advanced education company that offers individually tailored research projects, personalized mentorship, online study platform and teaching management system. As Joey Lin understands education, platforms like this are critical in helping new students overcome their fears while harnessing the potential of edtech, mentorship and e-learning in the education of the future.

Quotes and Highlights

  • Differences and challenges for Chinese students in China and studying abroad. I spent 3 years doing research before starting Illume Research and I found that the most difficult challenge Chinese students face is their parents. Education in China is different to that of most Western countries. Research and Project-based learning (PBL)  is really important in Western education systems whereas it is not so much in China. So when it comes to Chinese students that want to go abroad, telling their parents about these concepts can become problematic.”
  • About mentorship in today’s education. Mentorship is something that I have been researching and thinking a lot about. When I was studying in Cambridge, I saw that the top students provided critical help to other students that were struggling in the beginning. This is more important when it comes to students coming from abroad. I had more experience in western educational systems so I wanted to help new students to get hold of the system and help them as much as possible. Mentors can help not only with academic problems but also provide spiritual and economic support to these students. That is something I wanted to leverage in my company.
  • With Illume Research we also help students that are about to decide their future. In China, where we have more presence, we support students aged 15 and 16 with English, with research techniques, and support them finding what they like and are passionate about.
  • About Illume Research. Illume Research is a technologically advanced education company that offers individually tailored research projects, personalized mentorship, online study platform and teaching management system. We aim to enlighten students, helping them to develop critical thinking, research skills, innovation capabilities, and academic leadership skills. At Illume, we challenge our students to discover their true academic passions as our world-class mentors provide guidance and academic support. We are committed to providing an elite international education that will help guide students into their future roles as professionals, researchers, and world leaders.
  • Advice for educators and students to embrace edtech and e-Learning. My first advice to educators is to never stop researching and learning new education techniques. When I first started my company, I spent lots of time on WeChat groups talking with educators, principals, students and experts and we talked about different education systems and how we could help new students
