Perceivant Acquires Bearface Instructional Technologies

Perceivant, Bearface Poised to Disrupt Digital Education

Indianapolis, IN August 19, 2015

Perceivant, a dynamic cloud-based data analytics solution for education and healthcare, has acquired Bearface Instructional Technologies, LLC, an education technology company that provides personalized web-based learning, assessment and data analytics for higher education. Bearface launched its first products early this year and serves more than 7,000 students at eight colleges and universities.

“Our acquisition of Bearface advances Perceivant’s mission to be the leading analytics provider in education, particularly health education. Bearface’s content delivery application gives Perceivant a strategic point of entry into the higher education market,” said Brian Rowe, CEO of Perceivant.

This merger represents the convergence of big data and higher education. Powered by Perceivant’s analytics, Bearface enables educators to easily collect, analyze and report changes in students’ behavior, attitudes and problem-solving skills, and to leverage analytics to demonstrate course efficacy, as well as measure engagement and retention.

“We are investing in web-based instructional technologies that enable students to solve problems and adapt, not just memorize facts,” said Chris Johnson, CEO of Bearface. “Brian Rowe and his development team bring technical expertise and experience that enables Bearface to deliver a revolutionary learning platform for higher education.”
