Our Story

Every student wants to learn.
Every student deserves a high quality education.

Unfortunately, school isn't engaging for many students, resulting in many discouraged or disinterested learners. This disconnect can be fixed, but innovation remains difficult in the under-funded public education system. Online learning can close the gap, yet existing tools are failing to prioritize student engagement.

The lack of a solution frustrated us. So we created our own.
We focused on three unsolved issues for students.

Unfortunately, school isn't engaging for many students, resulting in many discouraged or disinterested learners.
This is particularly damaging for the millions of students already facing systemic educational disadvantages.

Subjects

Subject matters
that matter.

There are many subjects that are cornerstones of a successful life and career in today's world, but aren't cornerstones of curriculums in today's schools. LoFi provides a dedicated place for students and young adults to study a wide range of valuable life skills.

Metrics

Scoring that
rewards curiosity,
not memorization.

No more "teaching for the test". Our goal is not to churn out great memorizers, it's to develop curious minds who enjoy learning. So we designed metrics of progress that encourage that. This helps students explore learning content more honestly and with less pressure. The more you explore, the higher your score.

So we designed metrics that encourage students to explore.
This deepens engagement and allows the learning process to
occur organically. The more you explore, the higher your score.

Self-Learning

The future of education is highly decentralized, meaning students will need to develop strong self-learning capabilities. LoFi uses three mechanisms to reinforce the self-learning process and help students comfortably learn on their own and at their own pace.
