Knewton is currently designing and developing the education industry’s most powerful adaptive learning engine, which customizes educational content to meet the needs of each student. Traditional classrooms and textbooks provide the same material to every student, whereas Knewton will dynamically match lessons, videos, and practice problems to each student’s ideal learning arc. Ultimately, this strategic combination of information technology and design makes education accessible to the 80% of the global population who do not have access to it, through the internet.
Knewton is designed to tag all education content down to the atomic concept level. This system
further tags the resulting content by structure, difficulty level, and media format. The platform
can dynamically generate the correct mix of content and media for each student, every day,
based on exactly which concepts the student knows and how they learn best.
Knewton’s GMAT prep, LSAT prep, and SAT prep courses bring students worldwide the
benefit of adaptive learning, as well as the brightest and most experienced teachers directly
to students, via a live and on-demand video classroom. The platform will soon be open to
publishers, universities, and other organizations to power their educational content and to help
anyone on the planet learn more effectively.
