Title: Providing every teacher and learner access to intelligent tools that help them succeed.
Client: CenturyTech is one of the largest providers of educational materials for different
institutions at different levels of education, linking teachers and students. CenturyTech operates
in 10 countries. The firm offers to address the knowledge gap, challenges students to go through,
and promotes long-term memory retention through personal learning pathways with micro-
Overview: The digital world has been experiencing rapid changes that have started to penetrate
the education sector. Technology has contributed to transforming how knowledge is consumed.
Factors such as political and economic uncertainty are changing how people work and absorb
knowledge. The coming of COVID 19 has even made the demand for remote learning to
increase. Additionally, there are knowledge gaps that current educational systems cannot fill,
creating a different source of knowledge.
Objectives: The objective of CenturyTech is to combine learning, neuroscience, and artificial
intelligence. Additionally, the platform identifies knowledge gaps, addresses a misconception,
and supports interventions by teachers. The platform targets primary schools, secondary schools,
independent schools, international schools, colleges and parents and guardians.
Challenges: CenturyTech’s mission is to solve the biggest challenges facing the education sector
that includes the workload on teachers, and the one size fits all education delivery. The company
was introduced in 2018 and has been able to introduce artificial intelligence that changes the
delivery of education. Additionally, the platform is cloud-based. One of the biggest challenges in
the education sector is that it is difficult to disrupt. The CEO of this company is focused on
introducing digital service models that disrupt the industry. She had launched a platform that
disrupted the food retail for Masala. However, despite the poor state of education in many
countries, the adoption of these technology has been difficult. Additionally, artificial intelligence
in education is still new, and therefore, it took time designing AI that is fit for learners and can
give learners what they deserve.
Solution: The company delivered an award-winning learning and artificial intelligence platform
that serves schools, colleges, and universities. The platform uses neuroscience, learning science,
and artificial intelligence to adapt students' pathways and provide powerful data assessment for
teachers. The platform can learn the different ways students learn to adapt their weaknesses and
strengths and continuously adapt to the challenges and support. The platform was first launched
in the UK to solve some of the challenges faced in the country before being rolled out globally.
The platform is subscription-based and offers home-learning. Additionally, the platform reduces
the amount of time spent by teachers when doing administrative work, such as marking and
move this time to teach students.
Result: The platform customizes learning according to the student's needs and overcomes a one-
size-fits-all model of education. The platform records interactions, scores, and clicks as students
use the platform to learn. The artificial intelligence used in the platform uses algorithms to
identify the knowledge gap, comprehend the way students learn, and then customize the most
effective learning pathway for individual students. All the administrative tasks, such as marking,
are automated on the platform to enable teachers to spend more time planning and teaching. The
platform also provides a dashboard that is easy to use and allows teachers to instantly access
detailed learning information at individual and class levels to determine and understand how they
perform. The main objective is to provide a platform where students can realize their full
