Zoomi introduced its first-to-market e-learning platform at the Future of Learning and Working conference in Los Angeles. It adds real-time adaptive content.
As e-learning get a bigger and more important role in training, companies are racing to add new options and improvements in order to corner the market. Zoomi’s technology combines predictive analytics, machine learning, adaptive learning and social network optimization to deliver measurable ROI on corporate educational investments – a $60 billion industry in the United States alone.
“The corporate world spends billions of dollars on corporate learning investments each year without any clear way to measure their investment,” says Zoomi, Inc. Executive Chairman, Jim Walker in an official statement. “We developed Zoomi to ensure a company’s learning investment is measurable and to provide the data necessary to improve content moving forward – neither of which has been available until today.”
Zoomi’s proprietary technology was developed by Waterman Award recipient Dr. Mung Chiang and, in its trial phase, has already helped companies improve learning outcomes, enhance revenue, reduce costs, and mitigate risk. Clients have experienced a nine percent reduction in failure rates, a 14 percent reduction in the time taken to complete a course, and across-the-board improvements in reported satisfaction.
In 2012, Dr. Chiang found that only three percent of students enrolled in one of his massive open online courses (MOOC) finished the entire course. As a result, Dr. Chiang developed what is now the Zoomi platform to improve completion rates with true comprehension results. By wrapping a data capture and algorithm layer around instructional content, the Zoomi platform adapts a company’s existing educational content to an individual learner by analyzing their behavioral, performance and social patterns.
With over 85 percent certainty, Zoomi can predict whether a user will answer the next question correctly. Zoomi is able to deliver a measurable ROI for businesses and provide insights that can be used to improve the company’s future corporate learning outcomes. Content agnostic, Zoomi can be used to adapt and improve any instructional content. Natively mobile on IOS and Android, Zoomi is also available as a responsive Web App.
