How can we use technology to help educational publishers leverage their content, make learning more effective and teaching more enjoyable?

That was the question which sparked Adaptemy into existence in 2013 and is our founding vision to this day.

Back then, the first generation of edtech was just beginning to emerge. Early solutions frequently failed. Founders misunderstood the role of the teacher, the dynamics of personal relationships in the classroom, and publishers had huge difficulty going to market.

Adaptemy assembled a world-class team of experts, bringing together a deep understanding of learning, teacher training and software development. We began trialling prototypes in 2013 and later that year, launched our first full curriculum product.

By September 2014, our first major publisher partnerships had begun and we were building out services to help publishers through the process. A year later, our adaptive classrooms were in use in three countries across Europe.

In September 2015, Adaptemy completed a major investment round, and today we’re continuing to build the future of personalised learning with publishing partners around the world.

Committed to new ideas

We are constantly researching and trialling new teaching ideas and technologies.

In collaboration with our pilot schools, partner companies and leading universities in across five countries, we are committed to delivering more effective learning for different age-groups, subject areas, markets and cultures.

In-depth research is the backbone of our work. Through our involvement in the pioneering Horizon 2020 programme and other studies, we are making major technological advancements as we continue to bring the best A.I. technologies to bear on education.
