Knewton Analytics Team: Insights Into Data

Posted in Education Videos on September 11, 2014 by

Knewton’s adaptive learning team is one of the largest in the company. The analytics team, a large subset of that team, is responsible for the analytics or “insights” component of the Knewton platform.

“We are responsible for creating the data science side of the analytics products that we provide to teachers, publishers, and students… but also understanding how our product is performing and working with members across the company to improve it.”

-Director of Data Science, Jesse St. Charles

“I think the exciting thing about being a data scientist isn’t the data itself. It’s really easy to surround yourself with data. We’re all surrounded by data … The fun thing is to be surrounded by interesting problems that are important.”

-Zach Nichols, Data Scientist
