McGraw-Hill is among many prominent companies offering products powered by AI. ALEKS is an online tutoring and assessment program that traces its roots back to the University of California Irvine in 1994. That initiative became the independent ALEKS company, which McGraw-Hill acquired in 2013. ALEKS helps students learn various subjects in math, chemistry, physics and business-related math, and can be used by students in fourth grade through post-secondary education. The program works best with quantitative subjects like these, rather than for broader topics like English and history.
