InterestID Browser

The InterestID Browser is a tool designed to connect teachers with lessons based on the interests of their students. With InterestID, students browse through hundreds of interesting topics that NextLesson has developed its content around, indicating whether they like or dislike each topics. As students engage with InterestID, they build an interest profile. When students join a class, their InterestID data is shared in the teacher’s InterestID Report, which makes lesson recommendations based on student interest.
