What is Syngli?

Syngli Inc. is an early-stage educational technology start-up, with offices at the Accelerator Centre in Waterloo as well as in San Francisco. We are developing an online platform for increasing teaching and learning efficiency. Our system includes software inspired by cognitive neuroscience, and a uniquely-structured knowledge base grown online by users. Our system tracks each learner’s level of understanding, and uses such data to extract relevant information from the knowledge base and then generate novel questions.

Our Users

Key initial users will include post-secondary students, as they prepare for standardized exams such as the SAT, GRE, and MCAT. Other users will include secondary teachers and students, as they prepare for in-classroom and standardized tests.

For teachers – overwhelmed by their existing responsibilities and pressures to "teach to the test", our system will automate and distribute the work of creating and grading the training and testing materials they give to students.

For learners – in need of more personally-tailored lesson plans and better educational outcomes our product will increase the rate and retention of their learning using software that not only adapts to their performance, but actually predicts their state of knowledge and understanding.

Our Goal

Syngli aims to be the most intelligent and cost-effective platform available to teachers in creating curriculum-aligned tests and to their students in taking them. It will disrupt existing solutions for standardized test preparation, while promoting lasting and efficient learning.
