Claned Learning Platform

Claned is an online and mobile learning tool that creates a learning space for each learner. Within that space they study, collaborate and find material matching their individual needs. Claned applies artificial intelligence and theories of educational psychology, revealing what factors impact individual learning. The product concept is based on years of academic research, and has been developed in collaboration with leading educational institutions. Claned is designed to capture data on every interaction learners make with the system. Interactions occur when students read, write, collaborate, organize and plan – everything that learners do. This results in a comprehensive insight that demonstrates the learner’s study performance and learning orientation, but also motivation, emotion and stress levels. Claned helps learners to learn how they learn.
