The problem

The Problem

Different people learn different subject matter at different speeds, through different modalities and in different schedule scenarios.

Current educational development methods:

  • do not fully satisfy the needs and desires or fit the lifestyles of 21st century learners.

  • have not keep pace with available state of the art technologies.

  • do not fully apply the concepts of Pedagogy (the science of learning) as required.

You Can Learn, Inc.

The solution

The Solution

The YCL-Advanced Adaptive LearningTM Methodology:

  • Addresses each of the defined problems and delivers an adaptive learning experience in multiple degrees of complexity on any desired platform.

  • Includes a common core development approach that enhances standard content using proprietary tools and templates to create the delivered YCL formatted content.

    • Uses a cloud based technology for content distribution, application maintenance and analytics of all metrics.

    • Includes a complete set of tools and templates that expedite the development process and can be licensed to institutions, publishers and third parties as required.

The financial aspects

The Financial Aspects

  • Buyers Motivations –

  • Multiple studies show that educators and individuals need and demand new technologies and methodologies for content developers and students or they risk being at an extreme disadvantage.

  • YCL’s AAL Customer Cost –

    • YCL’s AAL applications are all inclusive and yet they will cost about the same as standard required study material or less.

  • Cost to Produce –

  • YCL’s AAL concept is designed around common core content using the YCL toolset and templates, thus keeping cost at a minimum while maintaining consistency and quality.

  • Further once developed for a single platform a YCL AAL application can be played on any platform using the free YCL platform players without any additional development cost.

A brief discussion on competition

A Brief Discussion on Competition

  • Per a review of existing Adaptive Learning Developers

  • Current available products and solutions are limited at best and don’t contain all of the advantages of the YCL-AAL concepts.

  • Each competitor’s product is designed for a single platform (it is a unique application).

  • YCL’s AAL Exclusive Features

  • Cloud based application distribution and maintenance – via the YCL cloud-based servers – one update to the database updates all like apps worldwide regardless of platform.

  • One copy of enhanced subject content is stored in the cloud and can be played on any of the YCL’s Platform Players

  • YCL’s AAL Methodology, toolsets and templates will be available on a license bases to third parties (institutions, businesses, publishers and etc.)
