Cerego is an adaptive learning technology platform based on principles of neuroscience and cognitive science.[1] Cerego’s patented technology uses the scientific method of spaced rehearsal as the basis for memory retention for content available via their website.[2]

Cerego has partnered and collaborated with various organizations and institutions including The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,[3] EdX,[4] Cengage Learning[5] and Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31.[6][7]

In 2009, Cerego launched a new Facebook app called Smart.fm Brainspeed that scans the information in the profiles of the user's friends and then creates a quiz around their personal information, in order to assess the memory power of the users.[8]

In 2013, Cerego partnered with Elsevier to provide nursing and healthcare students an adaptive learning solution for their educational content.[9]

In 2014, Cerego was awarded a grant by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to provide next-generation digital courseware designed to reach more than 1 million low-income students and disadvantaged learners in undergraduate courses by 2018.[10]

Preliminary results from a study conducted at Excelsior College in 2014 indicated that using Cerego can help increase grades when studying math and biology online.[11]
