Company Summary

NoRedInk.com helps students improve their grammar/writing skills through adaptive learning. Our engine generates curriculum from kids' interests and adapts to their abilities with instant feedback, tutorials, and color-coded heat maps. With no marketing, we're in 5% of U.S. schools, and students solve 4 questions every second of the school day. We won NBC's $75K Innovation Challenge and are on a mission to eliminate "red ink" on students' papers.
