Desire2Learn Acquires Knowillage Systems, Inc.

Desire2Learn expands its suite of analytics offerings with LeaP, an adaptive learning tool that addresses the personal learning needs of every learner in the class.

Tech Triangle‘s insight:

Desire2Learn, the edtech company that created the world’s first truly integrated learning platform, announces its acquisition of Knowillage Systems, Inc., the creator of an adaptive learning engine – LeaP – that improves grades by helping educators address the personal learning needs of every student. Knowillage LeaP uses language processing and analytics to determine gaps in a learner’s skill set and then provides the right tools, content, and techniques to address those areas of weakness. This acquisition extends Desire2Learn’s data-driven product offerings, supporting educators in their efforts to accelerate learning and improve individual learner outcomes.

“The Knowillage acquisition is strategic for Desire2Learn as it adds an adaptive learning engine to our integrated learning platform,” said Jeff McDowell, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Desire2Learn. “Most importantly, we’re excited to be able to offer a powerful tool to instructors that can improve learning outcomes for every learner.”
