Over the past year, IXL took important steps to continue meeting the evolving needs of all learners. To expand personalized language arts instruction, we acquired Vocabulary.com, the leading educational destination for improving literacy through vocabulary building. IXL also acquired Wyzant, the nation’s largest tutoring network, allowing us to support students from all backgrounds with personalized, one-on-one coaching.
These companies will help IXL serve more students in new and exciting ways, as well as facilitate personal and professional growth!
