Human connection, interaction, and inclusion are critical ingredients for building engaging and transformative learning in any classroom. Imagine a world where students of different abilities learn and grow together, but to achieve that real change meaningful and dynamic class interactions will be needed. Engageli, an inclusive digital learning platform, is looking to accomplish the same with $14.5 million in seed funding.
Engageli is designed to accelerate student success and deliver engaging teaching and learning experiences across a broad spectrum of needs for higher education.
Purpose-built learning platform
The uncertain shift to remote learning, accelerated by the pandemic, is leading to a considerable reduction in student success, impacting the most vulnerable individuals and further contributing to social inequality across education. Engageli is built to optimize student success by addressing these challenges head-on by:
- Fostering deep engagement between educators and students and course content, both in class and online.
- Creating a flexible and inclusive learning environment that enables organic and seamless peer-to-peer collaboration and social interaction.
- Increasing student and teacher success via an unprecedented collection of analytics to improve the learning experience over time.
- Promoting the inclusive learning environment to make it universally accessible, which will enable instructors to interact with the students who need it most.
Driving student-teacher success
The Engageli platform helps students and teachers to communicate, exchange ideas, work out problems, and learn content at a deeper level. It encompasses a host of unique tools, including table groups and dynamic breakout sessions, instant integration of polls, quizzes, and interactive exercises.
The tools are designed to test knowledge of course content and gallery view and fixed seating with real-time engagement data for instructors to better interact with students, regardless of class size.
Established this year, Enagegli is co-founded by Dan Avida, Stanford emeritus professor Serge Plotkin, Coursera co-founder and Stanford adjunct professor Daphne Koller and Jamie Nacht Farrell, a former executive at 2U and Trilogy.
