Flat World

Pre-made, course complete digital textbooks with analytics and study tools


Flat World provides pre-made digital textbooks that are customizable by intructors. Instructors can edit pre-made content, integrate their own content, or draw from collections of peer-reviewed content and open educational resources to integrate into the courseware. The textbooks are optimized for web and mobile access. Flat World also offers a separate platform for development of competency-based programs that includes an adaptive course-builder tool, Design Studio. 

Design Studio's adaptive capabilities consider factors such as learner confidence through self-assessment, time to complete learning exercises, performance on pre-assessment, learning style preference, mastery of prior learning objectives and elapsed time since last interaction with relevant content.
