On March 3rd, 2020, at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, at the inaugural edition of Edtech Summit Awards, organized by the Federal Ministry of Education and AFRITEX, Gradely was awarded ‘The Best Adaptive Learning Solution of the Year’.
Gradely uses artificial intelligence to personalize learning materials such as video lessons and practice for students. Personalization is achieved by using data from regular assessment (through weekly homework or practice) to recommend just-in-time learning resources to close learning gaps that have been identified in order to help students achieve mastery.
By bringing the elements of gaming such as instant feedback, high scores, levels, achievements, and time pressure into learning, Gradely is making learners better engaged and empowered to achieve mastery.
Gradely also makes it possible for schools and parents to intervene early in a student’s education trajectory by analyzing students’ performance in weekly homework assigned by teachers and by providing insight into the learning progress or challenges faced by each student.
Since the launch of a private beta in September 2019, over 65 secondary schools in Nigeria digitize their homework with Gradely homework tool which contains questions developed by highly experienced teachers guided by the IGCSE and WAEC which makes it the first teacher-led and curriculum-based eLearning platform in Nigeria.
“We started Gradely with a mission to make every student a successful learner.” said Boye Oshinaga, Co-founder & CEO, Gradely Technologies. “To achieve this mission, we are providing the tools, content and people that can support the learning process of every student. We believe that with more real-time data and feedback on the learning process, it is possible for parents and their schools to notice each individual’s learning gaps and fill those gaps in more efficient ways”.
While Gradely won the Adaptive Solution of the year award because of its data driven approach to education, 8 other players in the education technology sector were recognized for their valuable contribution to education in Nigeria including the government agency NITDA, Oracle Academy and EDVES.
