As schools across the UK prepare for a period of home learning, companies such as AI platform Up Learn are experiencing a surge in demand from teachers, students and parents.  Its online learning platform promises to help students achieve A or A* grades at A-Level or they are entitled to a full refund.  It reports that 97% of students who completed courses on its platform in the last two years achieved these grades.  Up Learn also reports that over 172,580 students have subscribed to its platform.

Up Learn uses a variety of AI and neuroscience principles within its software, which include growth mindset, gamification and interleaved learning.  Combining videos and quizzes, the platform creates a personalised learning experience that adapts to each learner.  It currently offers courses in mathematics, physics, economics and psychology covering a range of exam boards including AQA, CCEA, CIE, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC.

Up Learn also offer scholarships by providing free access to its courses.  It states that for every student that signs up to use its platform, it will offer a free course to another student who is unable to pay.  Students that wish to apply for a scholarship should visit their nearest IntoUniversity centre.

“ Many teachers are desperately trying to put together resources and video calls to continue their teaching online. Some are wisely turning to EdTech for a proven ready-made solution…Educators are using Up Learn to supplement teaching and ensure students have access to learning material as part of instructions to prepare for closures across the UK that could last months. ” Guy Riese, Founder & CEO, Up Learn

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, AI platform Up Learn has experienced seven fold growth in month on month sales.  The company has received funding in excess of £2.5m and cites Holly and Sam Branson amongst its high profile investors.
