Launch DateApril 2, 2007

WizIQ is an online learning and teaching platform that connects educators and students through its WizIQ Virtual Classroom technology. Available for individual teachers as well as organizations, WizIQ is a highly scalable solution for both synchronous teaching and asynchronous tutorials and assessments. Used for everything from teaching hybrid courses at major universities to offering guitar lessons one-on-one across thousands of miles, WizIQ is an incredibly flexible tool for delivering and enhancing any type of training or instruction.

WizIQ is a Massachusetts-based company with more than 2 million registered users and more than one million monthly visitors. WizIQ is rapidly becoming the preferred method for educators at all levels to establish an online e-learning presence that is engaging students with a degree of value that competitors simply can’t match.

WizIQ’s teaching tools work from a web browser, eliminating the need to download any software or worry about upgrades. WizIQ also offers a content library, a test/assessment module, teacher profiles, and public classes by experts. Going beyond providing online teaching tools, WizIQ enables trainers and tutors to find new clientele and sell their courses through an online marketplace with an integrated payment gateway, helping them build their individual teaching businesses. At the same time, these tools are scalable to meet the needs of universities and major training and teaching organizations.
