Our unique approach is driven by our belief that online learning has the power to reach all learners regardless of their location or resources, yet can only succeed if students feel a personal connection to it. Teachers at local schools who may or may not have expertise in the subject area meet with students regularly to guide, challenge and inspire them through the course curriculum. In doing so, students are enriched and motivated to do the work of learning in ways that technology alone cannot do.
Edhesive, incubated by Amplify and formerly known as Amplify MOOC, has made it possible for schools in 33 states to offer AP Computer Science for the first time, with impressive results. Students who completed our course in 2014 scored an average 3.3 on the AP Computer Science 2014 exam, on a scale of 1-5 (3.0 is passing). The national average score for the test is 2.95.
In addition, more than 5,000 students around the world have taken our course independently.
