Alleyoop, an online education technology tool, is offering students who are on edge about their math and science skills get better prepared for college.
The Pearson created the edtech to be more science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) focused for students, and has recently added more content partners including NASA eClips, National Geographic, Scientific Minds, Patrick JMT, Virtual Nerd, Adaptive Curriculum, and Brightstorm. The tool is adaptive to a student’s learning and will recommend new activities as the student progresses.
According to Alleyoop, five out of six middle and high school students will drop out of college due to a weak foundation in math and science.
“We’ve built Alleyoop from the ground up to attack the college-readiness problem,” Patrick Supanc, president of Alleyoop, said in a company blog.
The technology offers one-on-one tutoring, thousands of educational activities, step-by-step instructional videos, access to college admissions officers, and course, college, and career advice.
The edtech launched in February and is still in its beta testing phase with approximately 30,000 users, according to a report by Mind Shift.
