The 2016 Digital Content Silver Award, Wharton-approved.

Reimagine Education is organized by career and education network QS in collaboration with the esteemed Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania’s SEI Center for Advanced Studies in Management. Created to rethink the traditional education model, the Awards honor “innovative education pedagogies enhancing learning and employability.” Their panel of 40 elite judges and group of distinguished speakers include innovators from Google, Microsoft, Harvard, and more.

Out of 527 submissions, Interact was named among the top 3 Digital Content projects.

By granting Interact the Digital Content Silver Award, the panel singled out the platform as one of the top three most innovative e-learning projects of 2016 among 527 total submissions. The Digital Content Award is granted to “the project that…creates the most compelling, detailed, informative digital content, with an interface and medium designed to support learners everywhere.” Winning projects are those that have demonstrated a “clear causal link” between their content and improved learning outcomes.

Interact™ 101

Interact was created to immerse students in an engaging, self-paced learning experience. We reject the stale, linear model of traditional video lessons; instead, we’ve created an intuitive self-study experience that allows students to authentically connect with teachers through entertaining lessons (there are even a couple of sock puppets involved).

How? Well, we used real teachers behind and in front of the camera—our awesome instructors, in fact, who have all gotten 99th percentile scores on the tests they teach. They guide you through multifaceted lessons that engage your whole brain, giving you the skills you’ll need before, during, and after the test.

Interact tailors itself to you, making it truly interactive.

If you get something right, you may be led to a tougher problem. If you get something wrong, we might guide you through a detailed lesson. This allows you to experience the expertise, empathy, and guidance you’d receive from a seasoned teacher during an in-person class.

It’s kinda like the choose-your-own-adventure of test prep.

Interact covers every topic on the exam. For the GMAT, you can purchase Verbal Only or Quant Only if you need help only on a particular section. For the LSAT, you can purchase Logic Games Only, Logical Reasoning Only, or Reading Comprehension Only.

We’re ecstatic that Wharton and QS have named Interact as one of the most innovative e-learning platforms of 2016. What’s next for Interact? We’ll continue to make it even better.
