Conceived, coded and staffed in under a month this has grown to include small paid courses, Star Courses featuring celebrity experts and recently - just before the back-to-school season - we launched a Self Study program featuring a dynamic AI assisted learning assessment with focused recommendations to help students cover the gaps in their knowledge.
