Boddle Learning identifies and addresses gaps to help kids who are behind catch up while challenging those who are ahead. The platform makes studying Math much easier and fun for children as they tackle challenging Math problems which in turn slowly boosts their confidence. It also offers great products for both teachers and students like quizzes, assessments and self-paced practice.
Boddle Learning was developed in 2018 and officially launched in 2019. In 2020, they received a $100,000 grant from AT&T that helped them offer the platform at no charge to parents and students. The team hit a great milestone thanks to the pandemic that saw many parents seek the help of e-learning platforms as Boddle Learning recorded 50,000 sign-ups since schools were closed as a way to contain the spread of the pandemic.
