IBM Watson Education is bringing education into the cognitive era.

We are transforming the learning experience through personalization. Cognitive solutions that understand, reason and learn help educators gain insights into the learning styles, preferences, and aptitude of every student. The results are holistic learning paths, for every learner, through their lifelong learning journey.

IBM Watson Enlight, built for teachers, by teachers, is a planning tool that supports teachers with curated, personalized learning content and activities to align with each student’s needs. Teachers have access to key insights into students’ academic strengths and weaknesses as they create individualized learning experiences.
