Knewcleus is an education management software that helps maximize students' potential and was founded in 2010 by Jayashankar Balaraman and Praveen Krishnaiah. In an announcement today, Knewcleus has acquired X2PN E-Learning. X2PN built apps with a strong gamification angle. The details of the acquisition are not revealed apart from the fact that all the employees of X2PN will be retained.
Knewcleus helps schools build learning communities. It transforms staid school information systems into an interactive platform. It simplifies routine administrative tasks for teachers, giving them more time and energy to focus on teaching. The X2PN acquisition will help Knewcleus improve its engagement platform by providing learners with ‘learning games’.
Jayashankar, CEO and Founder of Knewcleus says, "We no longer want to be thought of as a plain vanilla School Information Software. With this acquisition we can offer a cutting edge learning solution that can give educators and institutions a clear lift in their pedagogical approach and plans. Knewcleus can now provide a platform which can interest and engage today's young digital natives."
The move will also help Knewcleus move in to mobile space.
