Solutions Covered

Adult Education: Literacy, ESL, Math, HSE

Instructors for traditional and blended-learning classes can use remote onboarding to enroll learners and then track progress.  Tutor-based literacy programs including libraries can transition from in-person to home learning using remote onboarding, automatic placement, and tracking.  The smartphone-based remote curriculum includes Literacy, ESL, ABE, Math, and GED Prep content.

Smartphone Blended Learning

Adult Ed providers can integrate Learning Upgrade into ESL and ABE classes to accelerate growth in reading and math.  Learners start at their own level and rapidly move up through step-by-step, high interest lessons. Instructors track progress through detailed web-based reports. Learning Upgrade help learners achieve breakthroughs to qualify for HSE diploma and CTE programs.

Adult School GED® and HiSET® Success

The new Learning Upgrade GED® and HiSET® math courses combined with our English courses prepare learners to pass these difficult HSE tests.  Smartphone access give learners an opportunity to “binge learn” at home, with innovative teaching videos, rigorous practice and audio-visual help for every incorrect answer.  These courses have proven successful with adult school students who previously failed HSE tests multiple times.

Library Literacy Programs

In Library literacy programs, learners use the Learning Upgrade app while working with a tutor or while they are waiting to be placed with a tutor. The literacy program tutors and administrators can then use detailed assessment reports to help guide instruction and intervention.

Distance Learning

Learning Upgrade is perfect for distance learning and remote classrooms, enabling students to remotely self-enroll into standards-based math and English courses using their own smartphones and devices. Teachers can remotely track and monitor all student activity. See our remote learning action plan for more.

K-12, Special Ed, Gifted

Teachers and schools can use remote onboarding with student or parent smartphones to give students engaging lessons in a standards-based curriculum.  Teachers working from home can place students with special needs or gifted students at different levels and then track progress and reward success.

Students Accelerate Growth at School and at Home

With Learning Upgrade, teachers can enroll each student in standards-based courses at their level. Students can complete lessons using school computers or using parent or student smartphones and devices at home.   With detailed reporting at the student, class, and school level, Learning Upgrade can help teachers track student growth and time-on-task.

Intervention for Special Needs, Title I, and ESL Students

Learning Upgrade provides differentiated instruction for students struggling with math and reading at a variety of levels.  Each student in a class can start at their own level and move at their own pace, using both school and home time. Because the program works on smartphones, students from low-income families without computers at home can still make progress.

A New Solution for Gifted Students

Learning Upgrade can provide your gifted students with their own path to advanced instruction at school and at home.  With over 1,000 lessons at a variety of levels, students can start at their level and then move far beyond at their own pace.  Because the program works on smartphones, students can maximize their time-on-task learning advanced topics at home.

English Learners

The Learning Upgrade App provides a proven and validated ESL solution to education providers around the globe. Six rigorous courses take students from low beginner to advanced ESL standards using a self paced and individualized approach. The Learning Upgrade App uses hundreds of bite-sized lessons packed with songs, video, and games to drive ‘binge learning’ in reading, writing, listening, speaking, phonics, decoding, and more. Teachers and admins can track all student progress in real time using the Learning Upgrade LMS.

Immigrant and Refugee

Remote onboarding and smartphone-based learning can help families who are homeless, migrants, or refugees cope with school closures.  New approaches for delivering learning to these communities developed over the past two years can be scaled up rapidly.


Through Learning Upgrade employers can enrich the lives of their associates by moving them up to proficiency in reading and math.  Each associate can use their own smartphone at home or computers at work to complete a full literacy and numeracy curriculum. The app can move an associate up to the level where traditional workforce training becomes effective.
