Welcome To The Future Of Steam Education
Kadenze brings together the world’s leading colleges, universities, and industry partners to provide the best online courses in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Design, Music, and Math.
Kadenze pairs world-class instructors with a digital platform specifically created to support an online arts-based curriculum. Our name is the derived from the musical term, cadenza. In western music, a cadenza is an opportunity for artists to test their skills, their creativity, and their imaginations through improvisation.
Kadenze is an education technology company built to address the needs of students and faculty in the arts and creative technology. Kadenze delivers a first-of-its kind creative arts education, providing access to the highest quality online interactive courses and an engaged network of schools, instructors, and students.
Founded in 2013 by Ajay Kapur, Ph.D., Perry Cook, Ph.D., Jordan Hochenbaum, Ph.D, Owen Vallis, Ph.D., and Ashok Ahuja, Kadenze and its supporting technologies are the product of extensive academic experience and research. Kadenze was conceived by passionate arts and creative technology educators Ajay Kapur and Perry R. Cook. In 2012, they were awarded a National Science Foundation grant to study methods of teaching computer science to non-programmers, specifically art students.
The founding and executive team is augmented by others with deep experience in arts technology education, machine learning, and with business and serial entrepreneurial expertise.
Courses In Art And Creative Technology
Kadenze fills a void in the online education world, as there are no arts-focused platforms that deliver the right experience or assess students’ work properly. Kadenze’s technology platform enables media-rich lessons and assignment submissions, including algorithms to analyze and measure students’ performance and progress as they complete courses.
