Build personalised learning experiences with LaunchPacks

We equip you with manageable ways to differentiate learning.

Create classes

Group your students into Classes based on different learning needs. You can also import existing classes from your Google Classroom account.

Customise content

Differentiate learning by changing the contents of a Pack. You have full control; edit, delete or upload your own materials.

Adjust reading levels

Articles come in 3 reading levels, so every student can access the same content. For those who need an extra bit of help, built-in tools like read-aloud and translation also come in handy.

Annotate texts

Help students engage more closely with the content. Add annotations to an article or create an excerpt of the full text to highlight key sections.

Differentiate activities

Encourage critical thinking by adding differentiated question sets or learning strategies to a Pack. See responses in real time to ensure students are staying on track.

Diversify learning pathways

Every curious mind is different. Within each Pack, students can chose for themselves which themes, subtopics or media types they want to engage with.
