New York, March 5, 2013 – Today, Triumph Learning — a leading producer of print and digital K–12 Common Core State Standards resources, standards-aligned instructional materials, and literacy programs — announced a partnership with leading adaptive learning company Knewton. Triumph Learning will build new digital products using the Knewton API to provide its students with continuously personalized learning experiences and analytics in all-new digital products built around the Common Core State Standards.
Triumph Learning, which serves over 15 million students within 42,000 schools, will launch these digital products in multiple subject domains in 2014. The products will feature Knewton-powered personalized recommendations, allowing students to efficiently achieve grade-level proficiency, while mastering key concepts and skills.
In addition to providing students with real-time recommendations, Triumph Learning will use Knewton-powered analytics to provide instructors with a wide array of student performance metrics and intervention recommendations.
Triumph Learning joins a rapidly growing list of global learning companies, content providers, publishers, universities, and schools partnering with Knewton to improve student outcomes worldwide.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Triumph Learning to help them build cutting-edge adaptive learning products,” said Knewton Founder and CEO Jose Ferreira. “Our unique adaptive learning technology will allow Triumph Learning to innovate faster and build world-class personalized learning solutions for their students. I can’t wait to see how these products drive better outcomes for their students.”
“The Common Core State Standards are an increasingly important element of the educational ecosystem for students, teachers, and school districts,” said Rick Noble, President and CEO of Triumph Learning. “Triumph Learning is committed to delivering innovative products that address these standards while also providing an exceptional student experience, emphasizing concept mastery, and promoting knowledge retention.”
The world’s leading digital education products use Knewton to improve learning outcomes.
The Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform blends data science, world-leading learning models, and pedagogical expertise to enable personalization at massive scale. The platform works with a wide range of digital learning solutions in a variety of subject areas. Every Knewton-enhanced product can provide a continuously adaptive learning experience to students as well as in-depth reporting capabilities for instructors.
Knewton stands alone in its approach to adaptive learning. Instead of creating pre-determined decision trees for specific content, Knewton uses incoming data to tune and enhance generalized models of student knowledge, content structures, and learning objects, producing consistently improved results. Knewton has created a flexible API that allows third-party learning providers to enhance existing products and build new, innovative learning solutions using Knewton’s continuously adaptive student modeling framework.
Knewton is the leading adaptive learning company, enabling others to create continuously personalized learning experiences. The Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform analyzes data about the performance of every student and similar students using Knewton-powered courses, as well as the relevance of the educational content itself, in order to personalize the experience for each student in real-time. Knewton creates tools that help learning companies, universities, and other educational content providers make personalized learning available to everyone worldwide. In 2012, Fast Company named Knewton one of the world’s 50 Most Innovative Companies.
Knewton was founded in 2008 by Jose Ferreira and has received funding from Founders Fund, FirstMark Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners, Accel Partners, First Round Capital, and other strategic investors. For more information, visit www.knewton.com.
