We are building the next revolution in education: providing personalised, continuous learning at scale, using all the learning content on the web.
The Initial Spark
"Many users searched for direction, disengaged quickly, and didn’t believe their efforts would actually improve their life over time. They were missing guidance: knowing what to do, when, and why.” – Rens ter Weijde (CEO, KIMO)Our Origins:
KIMO, a name with Hawaiian origins, was built to provide guidance in the world of work in the 21st century. Realizing that MOOCs only appealed to some people, we set out to include other content formats (articles, videos, podcasts etc.) at every price point. Today, the KIMO system is able to self-organize the content into coherent topics and sub-topics, providing users with an instant overview of the domain and a choice on topics to include/exclude. Content can be personalized using filters for preferred content type, difficulty level, price point, content length, favourite industry and favourite sources.
Today, KIMO is part of programs at startup programs in Google, AWS and Microsoft.
