Knewton Adaptive Platform

Lead UX Designer at Knewton | 2012

Knewton is an edtech startup based in New York that changed focus in 2011 from a test prep company to an adaptive learning course provider. I was hired to lead the UX team to create the adaptive platform which intelligently caters course content to a learners strengths and weaknesses. While Khan Academy or Coursera as targeted for individual use, Knewton’s goal was to sell the adaptive courses to universities and use them in a blended setting. With this product, Knewton secured partnerships in several universities such as ASU and Penn State and with content providers such as Pearson.
