Learning is hard work. Software shouldn't make it harder. We rely on user research and testing to help edtech companies build products that make education easier for teachers and learners of all ages — from kindergarteners to cardiac surgeons.

Participate came to us in early 2017 in the middle of merging businesses and transitioning to a product company. We were able to help them adopt an Agile mindset, establish a UX practice and weave design thinking into everything they do. The result is a 43 percent increase in active users and a 45 percent increase in satisfaction with UX for the entire product team.

JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association needed a new way to offer CME credits that would engage and educate young doctors. Table XI was able to learn what those doctors needed through user research, then build a mobile app that delivers on-demand education for the next generation of JAMA readers.

Embarc providing experiential education to low-income high school students. These “Journeys” — hands-on visits to parts of the city students may have never seen — are a game changer for often overlooked populations in Chicago’s poorest schools. 93% of Embarc students enroll in college.
Embarc didn’t come to Table XI to create this success — they came to us to scale it.
In 2005, GradeSaver’s co-founders came to Table XI to build a website that equips teachers and students with tools for learning. We helped them scale their business to 6,000 educational aids across multiple channels. Over the past decade, we’ve prepared their infrastructure for growth, managed their technology through an acquisition, integrated new systems, launched an iOS app and delivered a mobile-friendly redesign.
Nonprofit Innovations for Learning helps students learn to read using software. The team called on Table XI to build out functionality for their learning management application. By researching how young students engage, we hit on an idea for an iPad game kids could play to improve literacy. We developed the app, and we’re currently live with 25 districts, 300 schools, 1300 classrooms, 20,000 students (and growing).
