Vantage Learning: Transforming Classroom Interaction, Efficiency, and Accountability

Today, many institutions are relying on innovative technologies and big data to make better decisions and produce better outcomes across a student lifecycle. The education market has come to realize that technology can allow institutions to cull large amounts of data to gain greater insights from it all. However, this creates a number of challenges for education institutions as they bring together the people, processes, and technology to make the data a tool for enhanced student learning. Formed to meet the needs of the ever-evolving education industry, Vantage Learning provides proven technologies and professional development resources to foster meaningful interactions between students, parents, and teachers. “We spend substantial resources helping our education partners to utilize our tools to discover the data they have, unify data coming from disparate resources, and finally make smart decisions about their data,” states Paul Edelblut, Vice President, Vantage Learning.

Leveraging cutting-edge technology such as advanced artificial intelligence, natural language research, educational understanding, and user-centric application development, Vantage Learning provides customers with high-quality products and services. At the heart of Vantage Learning’s portfolio of solutions is Adaptera Platform. “Adaptera delivers a customized curriculum of content and brings together assessment, instruction, iseek and IntelliMetric technologies which provide total decision support,” asserts Edelblut.

The company’s iseek Smart Spend solution within the platform demonstrates its expertise in both big data and the business of education. Essentially, iseek Smart Spend indexes the data in school financial management systems and marks data from SIS (Student Information Systems) to see what spending has the greatest impact on improving student outcomes. iseek further allows teachers, school administrators, and district administrators to easily interact with their data, save, export, and share results from any amount of data and make sense of it to support

differentiated instruction, make necessary curriculum changes, and effectively allocate resources.

Additionally, IntelliMetric from Vantage Learning uses AI to score student writing, provide detailed feedback and scores on specific writing tasks. IntelliMetric provides students with two critical components—the ability to conduct numerous attempts at writing assignments and real-time feedback. “IntelliMetric has the intelligence to further detect the context of an essay in addition to basic grammar or syntax,” says Edelblut.

Vantage Learning’s applications are designed to be costeffective, secure, and scalable to fit any need. In an implementation highlight, The Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania recognized early on the power of personalized learning and the need to embrace learning management systems and lecture capture systems. The school needed an innovative way to make all of their content more useful to students, faculty, and staff. Vantage helped the medical school by deploying its iseek Medical engine to index, analyze, and unify all of the information from years of medical school curricula. As a result, the students were able to find important information for learning, the faculty was able to gain visibility into the concepts already covered by their colleagues, and the administration had an efficient way to ensure they were compliant with the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) curricular standards.

“We will continue to listen to our customers and study their business to iterate our existing technologies and develop new ones.” says Edelblut. The firm is focused on emphasizing its leadership in the area of AI-based writing tools and writing instruction. Through the connection of its adaptive learning environment platform and iseek, Vantage Learning will consume more information and create an opportunity for adaptive learning to grow beyond the education space into training and ongoing professional development.
