Ann Arbor, MI (USA), November 2020 - Amesite Inc., an artificial intelligence software company providing online learning ecosystems for business, higher education, and K-12, has announced the release of its new Course Manager capability, which enables schools and businesses to quickly and easily upload courses for remote use without the need for technical assistance.
"It's clear that schools need flexibility when it comes to providing remote learning options to their students, and businesses need solutions to start upskilling their workforce to meet the needs of the new economy," Amesite CEO Dr. Ann Marie Sastry said. "Developing this platform so that we could reach more schools and businesses that need this kind of help is the natural progression of our business. Furthermore, it fits with our ethos that high-quality education should be made as accessible and as affordable to as many people as possible."
Since its inception in 2017, Amesite has worked closely with the private sector and a number of K-12 schools and colleges to provide remote learning options, a need that has only increased in the last year. Many schools that are looking to put their entire curriculum online have been stymied by the need for onerous hands-on support. Amesite's new Course Manager allows those who are looking to get courses online quickly the ability to do so, even if they have no technical experience.
"We developed this platform to be able to be used by everyone, from teachers to administrators so that they can get learning online in less than a day. The drag-and-drop feature actually lets you see the course develop as you build it," Sastry said. "We've already seen the ingenuity teachers have displayed so far in getting lesson plans online using old legacy software. It's been frustrating. Now we're launching our zero-minute training experience. We designed an interface that utilizes the same tech from apps we use every day so that anyone will feel comfortable hopping right in and getting started."
Amesite makes use of artificial-intelligence technology in all its platforms, a feature that has helped set it apart from the rest of the EdTech space. The AI software and advanced data- analytics tools and machine learning algorithms allow Amesite's programs to update continuously based on students’ progress, pulling in relevant and high-quality information into courses as they progress. This provides an improved and more engaging learning experience: across all of its programs - from schools to business - Amesite has a 98% retention rate.
"We are excited to see what our existing and new customers do with this platform, and we look forward to growing our presence in all of our segments because of the effectiveness of delivery and ease of use," Sastry said.
