What is Costner?

Costner is a start-up company that specialises in software solutions for the education sector. The ideology is to provide teachers a centralised view of students’ progress in various games and applications.

Costner is developing The Captain, a dashboard for teachers, as well as several educational applications connected to The Captain. Furthermore, the company focuses on connecting independent educational games and applications to its dashboard to boost the usability of existing educational solutions.

The Captain

At the heart of the Costner platform is The Captain, a central dashboard for teachers. The Captain provides a real-time view of each student’s academic progress in various educational applications. The Captain paves the way for individual-based teaching by enabling students to learn at their own pace in various applications without the teacher losing oversight.

Grammar Game

Costner is developing a grammatical game which simplifies the making of assignments in Icelandic grammar. It enables teachers to use the same text to create assignments of varying difficulty levels, allowing students to work at their own pace. Students receive real-time responses from the game and teachers can have a real-time overview of each student’s progress through the dashboard, The Captain.

Prime

Prime is a mathematical game that allows students to work at their own pace in an engaging setting. The game is highly adaptive and the level of difficulty changes in accordance with each student’s ratio of correct answers. Students receive real-time responses from the game and teachers can have a real-time overview of each student’s progress through the dashboard, The Captain.

Einstein

Einstein is an application for creating interactive quizzes and questionnaires. Using Einstein, teachers and other professional experts can easily create various types of questions, including multiple choice questions, matching questions and visual questions. Students receive real-time responses from the application and teachers can have a real-time overview of each student’s progress through the dashboard, The Captain.
