Whether people are prepping for the GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, SAT, or ACT, Magoosh guarantees great results. By offering every kind of available study tool, the company and its users boast more than 50 million practice questions answered and one million hours of video lessons watched in 185 countries.
Although Magoosh’s user base continues to grow, the company is committed to reaching an audience that normally wouldn’t have access to test prep programs. Its interactive games, for example, offer students who aren’t able to sign up for traditional exam prep courses an inexpensive learning alternative.
Apart from that, the company has a blog where students interact with test prep experts and even connect with one another. SAT and ACT Marketing Manager Rita Kreig, who regularly uses this space to connect with Magoosh’s community of students, parents, and tutors, shares that “Magoosh has allowed students to come together who wouldn’t otherwise have access to these types of communities.”
Besides using the internet to reach a larger audience, Magoosh also uses it to customize each student’s learning experience. “I’m looking forward to more personalization within our products as we learn more about our users and their learning habits,” shares Sam Ju, who spends his days optimizing data gathering and analytics.
Sure enough, Magoosh is disrupting the education technology space by continually learning ways to better serve its students. This includes creating new tools that help address issues like unfamiliar study areas, tracking student progress over the course of their test prep, and blending regular learning tactics into enjoyable study tools and addictive test prep apps. These personalization efforts, combined with a vision to serve users who don’t usually have access to test prep programs, show Magoosh’s commitment to helping students succeed and meeting their educational goals.
