Branching Minds addresses 3 core problems. First is figuring out why the student is having a particular problem. Second part is figuring out what will help the student overcome that particular problem. Third part is collaborating and sharing the solution with all the stakeholders. Branching Minds needed a system that could effectively gather, record and show actionable intelligence for the teachers and other stakeholders could act upon. This meant that the software had to unite learning science and artificial intelligence. This would, in turn, help identify students’ cognitive and behavioral changes, allowing teaching staff to overcome problems and effectively monitor student progress along the way.


We identified 4 main features to translate Branching Minds working philosophy into a full-blown software to address the core problems. Our working mantra was simple; Identify problem, find relevant support, collect observations and monitor corresponding progress of the student. The application was to be initially made for web. Further scalability was kept in mind for other platforms.


Branching Minds showed 228 percent year-over-year growth in revenues between 2015 and 2017, and the company’s web-based platform has served more than 65,000 students.Apart from the phenomenon growth, the application is likely to be scaled in anticipation of large number of deployments foretasted in the coming years. Virtual Force is proud to have partnered with Branching Minds.
