Getting Started with Socrates

About Socrates

Socrates is a Las Vegas based online learning platform.  We know that many parents are looking for ways to motivate their children to continue learning while schools are closed.  We have partnered with the Nevada State Library, Archives, and Public Records to make our solution free to all library patrons in Nevada while schools are closed.

The Socrates Learning Platform is an award-winning learning platform created in partnership with the National Science Foundation. Socrates uses artificial intelligence to personalize learning for each student, adjusting in real-time to their needs across over 2000 detailed topics of knowledge. Socrates makes learning fun through 18 gamification elements, encouraging children to learn and progress more. It also includes hundreds of learning videos aligned to standards.

Currently Socrates provides over 2 million questions in Math, English Language Arts, Sight Words, and Science for grades K-6, as well as Math through grade 8. Socrates includes a powerful educator command center that allows teachers or tutors to view where students need help, assign homework, print worksheets, test and benchmark, group students, and more.
