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.
