Claned named best e-learning firm of the year

Helsinki-based education technology developer Claned has been named the best e-learning company of 2018 at the EdTechReview Summit & Expo in New Delhi, India.

“This nomination is an honour to us as there were so many innovative and forward-thinking global companies competing for this award,” says Mervi Palander, the CEO of Claned Group.

According to Palander India is a key focus market for the education technology startup, which launched its namesake cloud-based learning platform in 2016.

“That is another reason we are happy to be recognised for our achievements not only globally but also in this specific, fast-moving market,” adds Palander.

The learning platform, which utilises artificial intelligence, collaborative learning and world-class pedagogy to maximise learning outcomes, has earned the company a number of recognitions.

Claned was recently included in a list of the 1 000 most innovative education technology providers and its founder, Vesa Perälä, in a list of the 100 most influential people in education by EdTech Digest. It was also listed as one of the 10 most exciting personalised learning-oriented startups to watch in 2018 by Daily Disruptor, as well as winning the Artificial Intelligence track of the GESA Global Edtech awards 2017.

Claned combines machine learning algorithms with Finnish educational skills to create a learning platform automatically tailored to every user’s individual. More
