Today, over 60% of North American college students are unable to graduate on time and student debt has surpassed one trillion dollars. Shocking as it may sound, this is reality. But here at OneClass, our mission is to provide students with timely and relevant educational resources so they can study more efficiently and graduate as planned. Our platform encourages students to develop their own learning cycle by helping them learn, practice and master new material all in one place. We are very fortunate to have had the opportunity to help over 2.3 million students to date who have contributed 10 million+ pages of content which include everything from self-created lecture notes to 50-page study guides. We understand that every student learns differently and in order to facilitate a more effective environment for visual learners, we have also produced close to 5,000 video tutorials covering the most highly-requested university subjects. With new developments every day in the field of big data and AI, something that excites us even more are the 100 million+ data points collected to date from our millions of users’ activities throughout our platform, and the ways in which we can utilize this data to better help millions more. Facebook delivered the ultimate social experience to students. OneClass will deliver the ultimate learning experience to students.
