With this acquisition LEAD School will further enhance its overall product offerings and help schools maintain their high standards of education and deliver a 100% Complete School experience. Integration of QuizNext will bring new features for schools to serve their assessment needs while building practice habit in students through gamified elements and personalised recommendations.
LEAD School Co-founder and COO Smita Deorah said, “COVID-19 has brought in a seismic shift in school education. Beyond online classes, students need a lot of support in a remote learning environment for a full schooling impact. LEAD School is committed to providing complete, seamless schooling irrespective of whether schools are physically open or shut. Integration of QuizNext into our platform is another step in this direction. I am delighted to welcome the QuizNext team to LEAD School and look forward to working closely with them in offering excellent learning to every student.”
