Adult Education

Serve more learners for less money and better results

Whether you’re a community college, library or literacy group, you’ve likely been disappointed in the past. Exerting resources to boost basic education and skills, only to reach limited numbers and end up with poor results. Cell-Ed’s off-the-shelf courses and live, on-demand coaches effectively and affordably teach learners with what’s already in their pockets: a cell phone.

Cell-Ed works. According to independent studies

2 to 4 years of learning gains in about 4 months
94% customer satisfaction, 30% higher than competitors
75% retention of material vs. 5% to 20% online/in class
84% faster skills gains via 3 min lessons

How it Works

  • Connect

    Your users call, text or click to access courses & content using any mobile device - with or without internet - 24/7.

  • Learn

    They listen to bite-sized lessons, see key concepts on their screen and text back to demonstrate understanding.

  • Get Support

    Live coaches are available anytime to support users when they need it most via a simple message or phone call.

  • Improve

    Users receive ongoing reinforcements of the training via back and forth text messaging and take quizzes so learning sticks.

Our Courses

Our high-quality courses are aligned with national standards such as Best PLUS, CASAS and NRS. But this is just the start. At the heart of Cell-Ed is a team of doctoral- and master’s-level education professionals who are curriculum experts in ed tech for adults. By designing and developing for working adults, who differ significantly from K-12 or collegiate learners, we ensure (and conduct UX/UI experience assessments to verify) that our courses are relevant to their lives. This makes them more effective.
