Our mission is to give students access to relevant online information from reliable websites at their own reading level.
Currently, the amount of students having trouble with the internet is alarmingly high. The content is too difficult to understand and they often don’t know which websites can be trusted. At Wizenoze we want to make the internet accessible for every type of student – from primary to secondary, all the way up to the end of vocational. We do this by helping students to find relevant information from reliable sources, by providing them with an internet at different reading levels. In this way, we make sure that the information online is fully understood by the reader in order to improve their grades.
Web for Classrooms, one of our products, is the flagship solution in order to help students overcome the challenges they face online.
We combine human and machine intelligence to bring high-quality information at scale
Machine Learning is used to estimate the readability of any text and classify it on a 5-point reading scale. Our methods rely on extensive linguistic knowledge and one of the largest training datasets. This process makes the readability analysis far more reliable than any other method.
The Wizenoze collection holds over 8 million pages of information from trusted sources and is growing every day. Our human curators make sure the contents of the collection is readable, reliable and relevant for a school context. At the same time, our crawlers make sure we collect all content from these sources and keep the content up to date.
We make sure users can easily find the best results from the collection. We use advanced full text search techniques to identify the best matches for any query search. Our query suggestions help users formulate their information needs and get to the most relevant results quicker.
