YipTree is comprehensive and intelligent PLE that adapts every student’s individual needs while also saving teacher’s time and increasing student’s motivation.

Our vision:

The smartest learning environment in the world

Time saving  -“All in one”

YipTree has a material library that offers available ready-made curriculum based  education materials, tools, apps, contents and services. With this feature teachers can focus on supporting and guiding their pupils. It is very easy and flexible to plan lessons and courses through Yiptree. Teachers, students and other stakeholders are able to interact through YipTree and the service can also be integrated to social media.

Intelligent environment for personalized learning

YipTree’s artificial intelligence personalizes the whole learning path and materials based on student’s individual interests, learning styles and skill level. YipTree can identify learning problems and recommend more suitable learning materials and styles, which decreases the number of early dropouts. Our intelligent and versatile learning analytics tool brings possibility for teachers and students to monitor and analyze their learning process.

Inspiring and fun learning experience

To maintain student´s motivation and interest YipTree includes gamification functions and shows how STEM phenomena occurs in real life. YipTree is very user friendly because many functions work as the most common social media features.

Development of YipTree bases on a few values that matter to us.

  • Learning isn’t just a part of childhood. Learning is a lifelong process. Internalizing new skills and subjects plays a big role in the changing world. Our service supports that never-ending process of learning.

  • Experiencing and understanding new things, subjects and phenomena is first of all exciting. One of our main values is to maintain and increase pupils´interest and inspiration in the learning process.

  • Nothing can be achieved completely alone and learning isn’t an exception. YipTree has been developed with an idea that pupils can help, support and communicate with each others.

  • We believe that everyone regardless of time, place or personal weaknessesand strengths have their right to learn and achieve. That’s why equality is one of our key values when it comes to the product development of YipTree.

  • First of all, the whole service has been developed around the pupils. The meaning of every function in YipTree is to help pupils in the personal learning process.

  • Learning is all about individual’s weaknesses, strengths, interests and learning styles. That is why key to a successful learning is furthering individualism. YipTree’s clever learning environment has been created to adapt learning paths individually according to pupil’s skill level, interests and learning style.
