Smart Sparrow, a Sydney, Australia- and San Francisco, CA-based ed-tech startup, raised $10m in funding.
The round was led by Yellow Brick Capital, which joined existing investors OneVentures and Uniseed.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate development of its software platform and expand in the USA.
Founded in 2011 by Dr. Dror Ben-Naim, Smart Sparrow provides an adaptive eLearning platform that allows educators of science, medicine and engineering to create interactive and adaptive learning experiences while preserving academic control.
The solution incorporates an authoring tool that allows professors to create learning experiences and to deploy them to students. A learning analytics dashboard allows them to analyze their students’ learning and gives them recommendations on how the content can be improved to achieve better learning outcomes.
The solution is already used by academics from more than 400 educational institutions worldwide.
