Zzish is an Edtech platform, a ‘Virtual Teaching Assistant’ giving precise insight into learning gaps and personalising content. Backed by 2 Chinese funds with 254% activity growth and $600k govt deals in 2018, Zzish returns to Crowdcube after a 2017 overfund to capitalise on U.S. & Asian traction.
Zzish aims to give every child their own teaching assistant. Our technology diagnoses what each student is struggling with and gives their teacher or parent real-time, data-driven recommendations to help.
The $252bn Edtech market is growing 17% p.a. but is fragmented. With 200,000 education apps and over 4.5+ million digital resources there is no easy way to know which are effective. Zzish's platform brings these resources together, maps them to curriculum goals, and ranks them by the impact on learning.
Clients pay $2/student/year for the insights & content recommendation platform and our big data dashboard with the option to pay $20 to access all apps & resources. We've signed clients in 14 US school districts and the Philippines government.
155,000 teachers use Zzish for 2m students in 170 countries. It has given an 8-10% improvement in national science test scores. Activity has grown 254% since 2017 with 5.5m quiz questions taken monthly.
