Who We Are
Processly is an adaptive learning web platform that uses an infinite online whiteboard, making it easy for teachers, schools, and businesses to apply modern teaching methods. We do this by creating a play-space for learners to document, reflect, and communicate within a collaborative environment throughout their learning process, all the while providing key insights.
Designed specifically with students and educators in mind, our platform makes it easier than ever to foster a learner-driven environment adapting to the various modern teaching methodologies being used today. By simply implementing Processly, you will find students taking accountability for their learning, improving their long-term learning skills, developing important life skills, and truly understand how it feels to learn and grow in their own unique ways.
At Processly, we focus on redefining how we learn, whether we are in the classroom, at home, or at work. Founded in 2016 by a team of Carnegie Mellon University Devzgners (developer + designer) and educators, we came together to reignite the curiosity in every learner's mind.
With our collective experience in design, technology, and education, we are working alongside professionals and educators to design a powerful tool which will enhance the learning process.
Albert Topdjian is Co-Founder and CEO of Processly where he focuses on bridging the gaps between holistic design, business, and human behavior to change the educational landscape. Prior to graduating from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in Industrial Design, Albert spent 5 years working as a program and teacher assistant at ASAP - A Step Ahead Program. Albert was involved in the founding process and operations of the school, and taught children on the autism spectrum where he worked closely with the parents and teachers to implement various teaching strategies both at school and in their homes.
During his studies at CMUs Design school, Albert became an Innovation Scholar at CMUs Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship where he honed his business and entrepreneurial expertise.
