Active Learning

With decades of experiences in educational technology and a conviction to experiential learning, Quantic and Valar have re-engineered online education with interactive, mobile-first learning called “Active Learning” that’s more effective than lecture-based online models.

More about our Efficacy

Mastery-Based Progression

You’ll find no passive learning at Valar. No video-based talking heads, or long-winded prose. Instead, Valar constantly challenges learners by prompting interaction. Each lesson builds upon previous learning, so students test their understanding and confront new material in a mastery-based progression.

Don’t Teach and Test...

Online education has systemized the least effective practices of classroom instruction, broadcasting information then testing for comprehension. We challenged this passive paradigm in a 2017 study that taught Probability and Statistics to learners via three different platforms: Quantic (the same platform that powers Valar), edX, and Khan Academy.

Time spent on our platform was one third of what other participants spent learning the same curriculum and our learners reported higher levels of engagement. When tested on the subject matter, Quantic learners had higher mean exam scores, while learners in rival programs were 5x more likely to score below 50%.

...Test To Teach!

Valar’s Active Learning challenges students to think as the protagonist. The interactive curriculum acts not as a lecturer, but as a mentor or tutor, guiding and instructing learners with immediate feedback as they make decisions. Testing is therefore an opportunity to teach, rather than an exercise in information recall.

Active Learning flips the old educational paradigm with dramatic effects in both efficacy and retention.
