Apple Acquires Education Tech Firm LearnSprout

Apple has snapped up technology start-up LearnSprout in a bid to beef up its education tools on its iPads, Bloomberg is reporting.

LearnSprout makes software that allows schools and teachers to track students’ performance by turning data into “actionable insights.”

The iPhone maker also plans to use LearnSprout’s technology to expand its mobile education tools in such a way that students will be able to see interactive lessons and track progress on shareable iPads.

LearnSprout, which launched in 2012, is already used by 2,500 schools in 200 districts across 42 U.S. states.

Apple, in a bid to bolster declining iPad sales, has been focusing on the educational sector. To encourage schools and students to look to the iPad, Apple debuted a number of education-related tools in iOS 9.3. These tools included iPad sharing for students, and a Classroom app enabling teachers to direct students through app-based lessons. Other updates included an Apple School Manager to deal with student accounts and courses, and new ways to create and manage Apple IDs.

LearnSprout declined to comment on acquisition, while Apple gave its usual answer to Bloomberg: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

Financial details, of course, were not revealed.
