Glean - Finding the Best Educational Videos for Students

Hundreds of amazing teachers post educational videos online every day. At Glean, they have structured and organized these videos, tagged them by educational standard, and wrapped them in interactive tools (like Q&A and practice exercises). They have even built technology to pick the ideal teacher for the student based on his/her learning style and ability. Their technology works by pairing students with the best lessons for them. Together their team of teachers have watched these lessons, studying and collecting a number of details on every lesson – setting, pace, teaching style, grade level, and more! With Glean, students discover lessons by searching or browsing directly within a subject. Once a topic is chosen, Glean will quickly scan and analyze all the teachers within that topic to find those who match a student’s learning style closest. And if the video is not quite right for them, tell Glean and it gets better. They are a small team with a big vision, and they believe everyone, everywhere deserves a free world-class education. They are a group of technologists and school teachers from the same team that created SchoolRack, a leading learning management system.
