Our Mission

To make learning more effective, accessible, and affordable.

Our History

In 2003, a university professor, an entrepreneur, and an international business executive formed a learning company to improve the higher education experience. What started as a handful of authors writing assessment questions for publishing companies has grown into a global team of more than 300 in-house learning experts partnering as a full-service learning design company with leading universities, corporations, learning technology companies, and publishers.
