Hear the Pitch
There are two key problems in education around the globe. First, many students don’t meet required learning standards. Second, educators spend the majority of their time on administrative tasks such as grading and data tracking—time not spent personalizing learning and improving the quality of instruction.
Century’s AI-based platform personalizes learning to overcome the traditional one-size-fits-all model of education. As students learn on Century, every click, score, and interaction is recorded. Artificially intelligent algorithms identify knowledge gaps, understand how students learn, and customize the most effective learning pathway for each student.
Furthermore, Century automates administrative tasks, such as routine assessments, monitoring progress, and generating progress reports—giving educators more time for planning and teaching. Easy-to-use dashboards provide instant access to detailed learning data at an individual and class level to assess student performance. With these resources, Century is helping pave the way to a world in which every child achieves their full potential.
