StudySmarter expands the platform, which was previously directed at students, to include a further target group – schoolchildren. Together with Pearson, STARK, EasyTutor and AbiHome, the StudySmarter learning platform will digitise the preparation for the Abitur. Further classes and school types are to follow in the near future. This strategic decision symbolises an important milestone for StudySmarter and supports the vision of a platform for lifelong learning.
The StudySmarter learning platform for students combines modern technology and high quality content from partners. Students can look forward to exclusive digital benefits such as free access to STARK content and thousands of exercises. StudySmarter aims to improve the efficiency and structure of the learning process in high school and motivate students through playful learning.
“With StudySmarter we are developing an intelligent learning platform that enables everyone to achieve their own educational goals. We are very pleased to be able to offer high school graduates the combination of high quality content and unique technology” says Maurice Khudhir, co-founder of StudySmarter.
The new learning platform for students will be presented by StudySmarter and STARK Verlag at the LearnTec education fair on 29.01.2019. Interested persons can test the platform from today on (activation via a short mail to firstname.lastname@example.org). On February 12th the platform will be officially published for all students.
