Colorado startup seeks to track online learning - Caitlin Hendee, Colorado Business Journal

When Nicholas Garvin applied for a position at electric-car maker Tesla Motors in 2012, he felt there was really no good way to represent all the knowledge he had in the auto industry. " We invented the Stackup tool to categorize and score everything you read online," Garvin said. Stackup is a web application and smart browser extension that currently works with Google Chrome that can be used to track users' engagement on any given website. Engagement is then scored to provide insight into the time people spend learning on the web. The app is currently gaining steam in the education industry. Several teachers in both the Aurora Public Schools and Denver Public Schools are using it in their classrooms to create assignments asking students to spend time learning on the web. http://www.bizjournals.com/denver/blog/broadway_17th/2016/06/colorado-startup-seeks-to-create-a-credit-score.html
