Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Launches HMH Player

Posted in Adaptive Learning on July 7, 2014 by

We’re excited to announce that the HMH Player, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s mobile app, launched at ISTE this week. Knewton adaptive learning technology powers the HMH Player to provide K-12 students with more personalized lessons as they learn math via mobile devices. The first Knewton-powered tablet app, HMH Player is designed expressly for iPad and Google Chrome. The app is available via both the App Store and the Chrome web store.

The HMH Player enables more effective planning, instruction, and assessment — helping educators seamlessly and productively introduce technology into the classroom. The app features smart design, an enhanced user experience, and convenient implementation.  As a student progresses through the HMH curriculum, Knewton analyzes data to figure out what a student knows and recommend what to study next — helping more students master material and get ahead. The HMH Player, which makes lessons accessible to students both online and offline, is the first time Knewton has worked with students in an offline mode.

Instructors can share lessons with colleagues, provide progress reports for parents, and predict grades. In today’s classroom — filled with students with different needs, backgrounds, and interests — it can be tough for one lesson to meet every student’s unique needs. Knewton-powered adaptive learning functionality helps teachers tailor instruction to each student’s specific areas of need.

The release of the HMH Player marks an expansion of Knewton’s partnership with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Knewton technology also currently enhances HMH’s Personal Math Trainer Powered by Knewton.
