Founded in 2013 by Tabitha Bailey and Playlogix, the cloud-based e-learning platform uses artificial intelligence to adapt the learning material to a student’s level of capability.

“Daptio takes learning content to another level by enabling a self-directed learning environment that gives the student a better chance of passing,” says Tabitha Bailey, founder of Daptio. “We believe that the one-size-fits all model of education that is currently being used by educational facilities and other online offerings is no longer relevant, especially as we can leverage technology in new ways. Content can and should be tailored to suit the individual needs of every student – and with Daptio that is now possible.”

In the same month as winning the Telkom award, Daptio was also named by FastCompany.com as one of the top 10 most innovative companies in Africa for their role in championing a new wave in education through adaptive learning.

“We are delighted by the reception Daptio is having in the market place,” says Roger Norton, CEO of Playlogix, the technical co-founders behind Daptio. “The world-class technology behind Daptio ensures that it’s powerful while still being suited to run on mobile phones; which research shows is the backbone of all innovative solutions to emerging economies. We’re excited about the future for Daptio and the impact it’s going to have on Africa.”
