Voxy Wins 2015 Academics’ Choice Smart Media Award

Academics' Choice Smart Media Award Winner 2015Voxy is pleased to announce that it received a 2015 Smart Media Award from Academics’ Choice.

The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind and develop higher order thinking skills.

“Voxy’s mission is to change the way the world learns English by offering an effective, engaging product grounded in empirically-established best practices for language learning,” said Dr. Katie Nielson, Voxy’s Chief Education Officer. “We are thrilled to have won an Academics’ Choice award, which offers an exceptional endorsement of our innovative methodological approach.”

Voxy’s English learning platform adapts to each learner’s needs in real time based on their proficiency level, interests, goals and daily performance. By using machine learning and a powerful recommendation engine, Voxy can build a personalized learning experience at scale using exclusively authentic content—including popular music, videos and current news articles from leading publishers like the AP and Bloomberg. Learners also have access to one-on-one and group tutoring online and a fully integrated mobile app.

“As a former ESL instructor and tutor, I found Voxy to be simply amazing!” said one Academics’ Choice Awards reviewer. “The approach makes learning and practicing the English language so much more exciting, relevant, interesting and dynamic. The words you are learning and the topics through which you are learning them are truly personalized. The topics are not only designed around your interests, but they are modern, based on current events, which makes it so much more fun.”

“For both kids and adults, this process is so much better than classic language textbooks,” said another reviewer.
