Area9 Lyceum builds 21st century skills and competencies through the world’s first four-dimensional learning platform, Area9 Rhapsode™.

Founded by physicians and computer scientists, and headquartered in Copenhagen and Boston, Area9 combines more than 20 years of research into human factors and cognition with cutting-edge computer science and AI to transform learning outcomes for millions of learners. Across K-12, higher education, publishing, and corporate education, Area9 brings scientific rigor to transform learning outcomes at scale globally.

We have profound insight into the way individuals learn, and how their needs change over time. Every learner is unique - so Rhapsode delivers truly personalized learning at scale - cutting training time in half, guaranteeing proficiency, and making lasting impacts on careers and business outcomes.

We pioneered the use of confidence measures to improve learning through self-awareness and to improve the ability of the system to adapt to the needs of every learner.  Our 4th generation ‘biological model’ is, to the best of our knowledge, the most advanced commercially available adaptive engine.  Used by more than 13 million learners, it is based on peer-reviewed scientific research about what works in learning, combined with empirical evidence collected over many years.

Rhapsode develops 21st-century learners along four dimensions – knowledge, skills, character, and meta-learning.  It helps build the key competencies that are vital for every student and worker – including the 4C’s of collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity, as well as helping to develop a growth mindset.

By taking a scientific approach. Rhapsode knows how to measure the impact of training, and how to dynamically reorient the learner when appropriate. By adapting moment-by-moment and over longer periods of learning, we allow the learner to speed through things they already understand and zero in on what matters for this learner, short term as well as long term. We relentlessly target individual needs, measure confidence, and improve the engagement and learning experience for each and every user.

Our learning engineering and content development services speed your adoption of adaptive learning; either by rapidly bringing your team up to speed with new skills or by providing a turn-key content solution.

Across the skill and competency landscape – from compliance to on-boarding to leadership development – Area9 accelerates business performance by building 21st-century capabilities more efficiently and effectively than traditional teaching approaches.
