SAN FRANCISCO, July 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cerego, a leader in adaptive learning technology, today announced Paul Mumma as the company’s new CEO, effective immediately. Turning the page on the next chapter of learning, Cerego is also rolling out a new suite of smart "Create" tools for its adaptive learning platform to simplify content creation and improve the learning experience. The new tools reduce content creation time by more than 25%, making it easier than ever for corporate and academic institutions to integrate adaptive learning.
The new AI-powered smart Create tools use natural language processing to allow instructional designers and teachers to easily build custom learning experiences, while in turn improving the quality of the experience for the learner, which has always been the company’s core focus. Cerego’s tools are content agnostic and can be applied to any subject matter or skillset. New tools include:
“Smarter content leads to better learning, and that’s the focus of these new tools,” said Paul Mumma, CEO of Cerego. “We believe everyone should have the ability to enhance their potential through learning, from students building the foundational knowledge they'll need to complete their academic careers and transition into the workforce, to professionals looking to reskill or upskill in order to maintain or progress their careers. I look forward to continuing to carry out this mission with our team as the CEO of Cerego.”
Today, Cerego is used by nearly 2,000 academic institutions and corporate training programs in the U.S., with partners ranging from airlines and financial service providers to medical technology companies and government institutions. The platform has generated more than three quarters of a billion learner interactions, giving Cerego one of the largest learner data sets in the world, outside of academia. Create leverages feedback from these interactions and decades of cognitive science research to provide Cerego partners with the ability to create a customized, personal experience to meet their learning needs.
“We started Cerego with an ambitious goal: expand human potential by improving the way people learn,” said Andrew Smith Lewis, co-founder of Cerego. “We’ve made incredible progress in the years since, combining cognitive science with modern technology to help more than one and a half million professionals and students increase their knowledge and improve long-term retention. The new Create tools will make it easier than ever to help learners achieve these goals with smarter content.”
