Smart Sparrow’s Adaptive eLearning Platform is delivered online (software as a service – SaaS) and enables teachers and academics to build rich, interactive and adaptive educational modules. Students benefit from a “tutor over the shoulder” learning experience, in which the content intelligently adapts to their specific needs. Pearson, the world’s learning company, acquired the industry-leading interactive technology in 2019 in a deal that valued Smart Sparrow’s assets at US$25 million.
Uniseed identified the Smart Sparrow technology developed at partner research organisation the University of NSW by PhD student and Founder Dror Ben Naim, and invested $500,000 alongside $1.5 million from OneVentures in the initial Series-A round in late 2011. Uniseed participated in subsequent investment rounds alongside UK-based Yellow Brick Capital, Moelis & Co Australia and American College Testing.
