Generation Z is continuously trying to have experiences everywhere… Including in the classroom. In addition, researchers in neurosciences have determined that students' attention drastically decreases after 10 minutes.
By creating the web platform Wooclap, the founders aimed to disrupt the field of education.
Instead of fighting smartphones, Wooclap transforms them into an exceptional learning tools.
With Wooclap, the idea is to make classes more enjoyable, more efficient, and most importantly, to improve the quality of lectures.
Sébastien Lebbe (CEO) and Jonathan Alzetta (CTO) Studied engineering at l'Ecole Polytechnique of Brussels.
Passionate about instruction and technology, they acknowledged that instructors have an increasingly difficult time trying to captivate their students. Therefore, they had the idea of using smartphones, often considered as a source of distraction, to enable students to interact with their professors.
Since the creation of Wooclap, Sébastien and Jonathan surrounded themselves with neuroscience researchers, pedagogic professors and engineers to develop features that improve memorisation and comprehension of students.
Wooclap launched its first version at the beginning of 2015.
At the moment, the platform is used in more than 100 countries by universities, training organizations, and businesses who use it for their training sessions and conferences.
More than 30 000 instructors use Wooclap.
The platform is available in 6 languages. (EN, FR, DE, NL, ES, RU)
