Area9 Rhapsode uses artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver a highly personalized approach that replicates the one-to-one interaction of a tutor and learner in a digital environment. By identifying and addressing each learner’s knowledge and skills gaps, the adaptive learning platform meets learners at their individual skill levels, which greatly increases engagement.
