Personalized learning site Alleyoop is partnering with several top partners to increase its science content for students. The Pearson-backed ed tech startup, which helps students prepare for college with customized and gamified interactive subject-based content, wants to inspire future STEM leaders.
ClassDojo, a San Francisco-based startup that helps teachers manage student behavior with game mechanics, is launching out of beta with $1.6 million from some of Silicon Valley’s top investors. To date, the company says 3.5 million teachers and students globally are using its service.
In some circles, the phrase “gamification” may have gone out of fashion but, with help from Bunchball, Course Hero is intent on showing that it can still pack a punch in education and released some data to illustrate its point.
