Knewton is a technology company based in NYC. The Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform™ customizes standardized educational content to meet the unique needs of each student.

Knewton analyzes learning materials based on thousands of data points—including concepts, structure, difficulty level, media format—and uses sophisticated algorithms to piece together the perfect bundle of content for each student, constantly.

In 2011 Knewton was named a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum, following in the footsteps of companies like Twitter, Mozilla, and Paypal. We were also voted one of the top 25 best places to work by Crain’s New York Business and one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world by Fast Company.

Today, students in 190 countries are learning using The Adaptive Learning Platform™. Pearson and Knewton are partnering to enhance Pearson MyLab and Mastering products with Knewton adaptive learning technology for millions of students. This partnership will give students a much more personalized and effective study plan experience. Colleges and universities are solving long-standing remediation problems with Knewton Math Readiness, and students across the globe are using our GMAT and SAT prep courses to get ready for test day.

The way we learn is changing. Knewton is at the forefront of that change. We’re working together with publishers, schools, and other organizations all over the world to do our part to improve education.
