About Emerge

The world needs a better way to educate our people.  Our finest young minds need access to the very best education.  Knowledge is growing at an exponential rate, but we still use an expensive, 10th century teaching approach without the benefit of our emerging technology solution.    The best teachers can only impact a small fraction of a percent of eligible students, and those few students must all travel to the teacher. 

As an interim step, pre-recorded lectures have been developed but are presented in a very sterile environment – zero interaction between the teacher and the student and among the students themselves.

USC in conjunction with Emerge Media has created a unique virtual educational experience powered by System73 - which is the future of education.The most gifted teachers can interact with students anywhere in the world in real time, in any numbers, giving your students an advantage.

Our People


Jeremiah O’Brian, President and CEO:

Jeremiah is a thought leader and innovator in education at the highly-acclaimed USC School of Dramatic Arts. His search for teaching excellence along with his experience as the USC Ted Talk Coach led him to discover that effective, live presentation followed by student discussion is much more effective for the student to master new material than the old remote learning methodology of viewing recordings and taking tests. Students engaged with the teacher and each other are more effective at mastering the material. This led him to develop the Emerge technology and techniques for live streaming teaching and coaching. He has become a recognized leader in actor training, educational technology and persuasive speaking technique.
