The first text message learning platform

Recently named a Fast Company World-Changing Idea, the Arist platform helps leading organizations create, launch, and assess text message courses for use cases as diverse as compliance training, content reinforcement, professional development, and introductory learning.

Text message courses consist of 1,200-character concept or case study "blocks" texted to the user every morning over the course of 5-30 days. Each block can include images, GIFs, and assessments. By utilizing cutting-edge research from Stanford and UPenn, text message courses have completion and satisfaction rates of over 90% (vs. ~5% for video courses).

By breaking down learning into bite-size chunks and delivering it via SMS, WhatsApp, or Facebook Messenger, Arist makes digital learning frictionless, effective, and extremely accessible.
