McGraw-Hill Education today announced that it has acquired Area9 Aps, an adaptive learning company. In January 2013, McGraw-Hill Education purchased a 20 percent equity stake in Area9; the agreement announced today covers the 80 percent of the equity in Area9 that McGraw-Hill Education did not already own.
McGraw-Hill LearnSmart® was the result of the first collaboration between McGraw-Hill Education and Area9.
The LearnSmart Advantage suite of adaptive learning products continually assesses students’ knowledge and skill levels to design personalized study paths that help students improve in the areas where they need to improve the most. - See more at: http://www.schoolcio.com/cio-trends-&-resources/0114/mcgraw-hill-education-acquires-area9/54674#sthash.l18IoDcm.dpuf
