Personalized Learning for Everyone

SelfStudy is on a mission to make personalized learning accessible to everyone. We are harnessing the power of technology to empower people, providing tools to enable all of us to effectively share the knowledge we have, to enable teachers to teach more effectively through the web, and to make web-based learning easier, more engaging and more effective.

To do this, we apply the technologies that make computers smarter to making people smarter. This makes it possible for us to deliver a personalized path to proficiency that meets people where they are and gets them where they need to go, in the most time efficient and lasting way.

We also automate the creation of personalized learning programs from existing resources, in any media. Whether you’re a professional association, publisher, experienced teacher or a domain expert creating your first online course, you can now deploy engaging, adaptive, personalized learning activities inexpensively, in minutes instead of months. You identify the references that need to be mastered, and we’ll create the course.

Because effective, convenient, personalized learning has never been more important than it is now.


Workforce Disruption Requires Up-skilling

We are in the midst of the largest workforce disruption since the Industrial revolution.

60% of jobs will change by 30% by 2030

63% of US workers up-skilled in the last year

Technology is creating the largest shift in our workforce since industrialization.

Continuing education is critical not only to advance but also to maintain current positions in this rapidly changing workforce.

Courses can take longer to develop than it takes for skills to become obsolete.

People are busy with families and jobs — they don’t have time to add regular training to their day.

Traditional education cannot provide the solution.

Web education is accessible, but generally provides traditional courses that require dedicated time and completion rates are abysmally low.

SelfStudy uses AI to provide the learning solutions we all need.

Learning Grounded in Science

The SelfStudy platform uses research done at MIT’s McGovern Institute for Brain Research as well as the latest learning studies in cognitive psychology and neuroscience to create highly-personalized learning programs. Our patented AI technology assesses each user and the community, and, in real-time, selects the most relevant content to take them on their most efficient path to proficiency – keeping them engaged, and ensuring results.

SelfStudy’s accurate continuous assessment also powers competency-based learning, badging and certification programs.

First deployed for anesthesiology residents and physicians, SelfStudy has proven effective in an environment where knowledge has life and death consequences and privacy and security standards are at their highest levels.

“Educating busy anesthesiologists about neuroscience and EEG monitoring is no easy task. SelfStudy helped us bring our ideas to life in a format that was engaging and highly-personalized.  I believe it enabled more rapid mastery of concepts and information in the course of physicians’ daily routines. The SelfStudy team were a pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with them on future projects.”
