It’s no secret that the “modern” education model, one that was popularised over a century ago, is, quite frankly, broken. So why do we so desperately hold on to this “old school” way? Well, Münster-based edyoucated is seeking to change this. At least at the corporate learning level. The startup has raised €2.1 million and addresses the issue head-on by assessing a learner’s prior knowledge and generating an effective learning path based on goals and preferences. The graph-based analysis then allows corporates to break down career progression modules into small, digestible concepts and matches them with learning materials.
Founded in 2019, edyoucated has been working with clients including BASF, Fiege, and MANN+HUMMEL to hammer out custom-crafted data management, user-centricity, and innovation & digitalisation skills, and reports a dramatic reduction in unnecessary materials and search time.
“We are just scratching the potential of personalization in the corporate learning & development field and already seeing up to 9x improvements in engagement and learning success,” commented co-founder David Middelbeck.
Earlybird’s Paul Klemm adds, “Edyoucated has built a sophisticated AI engine that brings personalised learning to the next level. It’s key to understand how users learn, and match high-quality content accordingly.”
