OpenStudy: Innovation for College Preparation
OpenStudy combines a deep understanding of what learners want today with new technology to offer a bold, disruptive perspective on the national problem of college completion. OpenStudy combines an award winning learning community with access to online courses, motivation through game mechanics, and recognition through a certificate. We reach over 2 million learners, over 130,000 registered users, who ask 2,000 questions a day, and answer 70% of them within 5 minutes. Learners on OpenStudy can now engage with new college level material, receive support from their peers on the system, and improve their preparation for college. We reach learners outside schools and colleges–in their preferred habitats–online.
