Education is the foundation of progress across all industries and all disciplines

The world is changing with technology becoming more manifest in everyone’s lives and that change requires new skills and new knowledge.

Efforts like MOOCs have attempted to democratize the education process, but the scale has not been achieved. While these platforms have demonstrated the capability for large scale distribution of content, what has not been scaled are the elements of teaching we associate with the relationship between the student and the teacher and student to student; things like, hints, feedback and insight on performance on open ended assignments.

Our mission is to close this gap.
