Knewton has developed the industry’s most powerful adaptive learning engine, customizing educational content to meet the needs of each student. Whereas traditional classrooms and textbooks provide the same material to every student, Knewton dynamically matches lessons, videos, and practice problems to each student’s ideal learning arc. Constant assessment across dimensions such as difficulty, frequency, and media maximizes learning efficiency and concept mastery. Knewton’s test prep courses for the GMAT and LSAT bring the brightest and most experienced teachers directly to students worldwide via a live and on-demand online video classroom. The Knewton platform also powers third-party educational content from major publishers, corporations, and other organizations. Knewton was founded by Jose Ferreira, a former Kaplan executive, with funding from Accel Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, First Round Capital, and prominent angel investors. The company was a finalist in the 2008 Amazon.com Start-Up Challenge.
