At CogBooks we’re committed to transforming the way you teach and your students learn, by applying science-based methods to education.
Through our unique advanced adaptive learning technologies, we’re changing the way secondary and further education students learn – in the US, UK and worldwide.
We believe our technology will define the next generation of education, empowering teachers and institutions like never before — and we’re not alone. Its huge potential has been recognised by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. CogBooks received a $2m grant from the Foundation to develop adaptive courseware for US colleges as part of the Next Generation Courseware Challenge.
