Product/Service Summary

MOOCs have a dropout rate of 95%. Our tool makes them more engaging by connecting MOOC learners to a fitting group of 10 others using an algorithm. Group members can chat with each other and track each others' progress in the course as they go. We're a B2B company - we work with online course providers who use our product for their e-learners.

How are we different?

We've seen startups trying to create online communities for e-learners (Engrami, GroupMOOC, MOOCactivity). However most of them have failed to solve the chicken and egg problem. What makes us different is our B2B model - we go through course providers to reach users, which makes it easier for us to gain scale & create an effective social platform.
