Conexus provides a unique combination of learning analytics, quality content and practical, proven processes in the field of learning and personal development. We´ve had a chat with Steinar Evensen, CEO, to get an update about the company, learning analytics, impact of technology, challenges, and their big steps in Asia.

 
 

Can you describe briefly what Conexus do?
Conexus is a research leader in learning analytics and deeper learning in Norway. We promote a holistic approach to education with a broad curriculum perspective. In careful collaboration with teachers, educational leaders, government institutions, researchers and the educational technology industry, we have made evidence-informed pedagogy the basis of our company’s philosophy. We have a range of products, most known is our student survey that is mandatory for all K12 schools in Norway.

What type of services do you offer and how does it work?
We offer a unique combination of learning analytics, quality content and practical, proven processes in the field of learning and personal development. Thereby, we empower individuals, help organisations and change society towards our vision of a smarter learning planet. We want to create education for the world we want to live in.

What do you want to change?
Technology is impacting all our lives. Current and future generations of educators and learners can use digital tools to improve their learning efficiency by using evidence-based data to assess their progress. This facilitates truly individualized teaching and learning, motivating students to focus on their strengths. We call this approach deeper learning, and its influence is growing around the world.

Why did you choose edtech?
Without kids, no future. But we need smart kids, kids that can clean up the mess from my generation and we need to equip them with the right mindset.

What do you see are the biggest challenges in this market?
European politicians are moving too slow. We cannot wait 10 years before we act.

What is your next big steps or ambitions?
We have already sold our system to the government in Malaysia, and it is now carried out as a national solution (talent profiling of the nation). Our next ambition is to do the same in Singapore.

In what way has being a member of Oslo Edtech Cluster made a difference for you?
To be an edtech company from Norway gives credibility and Oslo Edtech Cluster helps us to build relations to other Norwegian Edtech companies and to make Norway a brand.

How many employees do you have?
110

Which stage do you say your company is at? Growth? Well established?
Well established, but still fast growing.
