About Marten de Prez
As director and owner of A New Spring I am responsible for products development and innovation. I did my Master of Science Business Economics, Marketing Management at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam and developed a special interest in sociology and customer centered product design. I really like the ‘needs’ point of view of marketing. My goal is to develop products and services from the customer perspective. After working with Accenture as a business consultant I joined A New Spring which I later acquired. The A New Spring team is on a mission to make e-learning easy, personal and available for everyone.

aNewSpring – Courses that adapt to every learner

aNewSpring is the adaptive learning service that lets you easily create and deliver courses that adjust to each individual learner. Unlike most course authoring tools, where the content is presented to everyone in the same way, the courses in aNewSpring adapt to each learner to make them succeed.

Personalized learning
aNewSpring tracks previous learner successes, obstacles, assessment results and author objectives to personalize courses for all learners. As learning obstacles are encountered, aNewSpring engages every learner with their own automatically adjusted route. aNewSpring also fosters social interactions and game dynamics along with support for Skype and Facebook.

Learn anytime and everywhere
Because aNewSpring is entirely web based, training authors can version courses easily and collaborate in real-time as a team. Learners can experience aNewSpring courses on any PC, Apple iPad along with our own apps for Apple iPhone and Android devices.

The learning secret sauce
Since 2005, aNewSpring has been “the learning secret sauce” to over two hundred leading corporate and educational training, publishing and manufacturing companies around the world. We have grown from our products but also through unmatched support to our customers.
