Cogbooks raises £1.25m to support growth acceleration

CogBooks, the Edinburgh based education technology business that focuses on personalising learning, has raised £1.25m from existing investors Nesta Impact Investments, DC Thomson and the Scottish Investment Bank, the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise.

The investment will be used to accelerate expansion in the UK and US higher education markets.

By personalising learning to students’ individual needs, CogBooks has demonstrated that its advanced adaptive online learning technology can significantly improve attainment and student retention, with Arizona State University witnessing a 24 percent increase in student success and 90 percent reduction in dropout rates.

In October 2014, CogBooks raised £1.75m from the same group of investors.

Annual Alliance Survey

We're pleased to announce the launch of our Annual Alliance Survey.

The survey is an opportunity for us to step back from our daily work, and look at things from a slightly wider angle. 

We're interested in knowing what you're doing at the moment in elearning, and also what you see as the big issues coming down the track in the next 12 months or so.

By pulling data from a wide population, the survey can point to areas which are important across our elearning community, helping us to look ahead and start to make plans.

The survey is open for the month of June, and we will publish the results in July.
It should only take a couple of minutes to complete, so we'd be grateful if you take a wee time out and fill in the form.
