“We approach the market by reducing an existing pain point and expense for students— textbooks,” says Ariel Diaz, Founder and CEO of Boundless Learning. Diaz believes there is an obligation to improve educational tools as new technologies are developed. “Our goal is to simply replace textbooks with a product that is equal or better in content quality, superior in delivering results through real-time data and insights, and highly flexible to fit any curriculum, all at a fraction of the price,” adds Diaz. With headquarters in Boston, MA, Boundless provides educational resources powered by the cloud to make teaching more efficient and learning more effective.
Boundless’ cloud platform delivers a learning experience either as a standalone product, or as a critical element of an institution’s learning management system (LMS). “Our team of in-house and freelance Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) provides high- quality services to help deploy, create or expand content, migrate existing resources, and train faculty members and instructional designers,” adds Diaz.
Unleashing a radical new approach to the education sector, Boundless’ innovation is focused on two key areas— content and technology. On the content front, the company leverages the power of openlylicensed educational content, in addition to a collaborative workflow and custom-built platform to create better content cheaper and faster than traditional methods. “Our content is also highly scalable, which enables us to pass savings onto students, and to invest in the technology platform,” affirms Diaz. The technology platform of Boundless supports a content management system that tracks versions of every change in a module. This empowers its users to suggest changes, which, if approved by the team of Boundless academic experts, can be published immediately. This flexible platform also facilitates self-publishing, easy customization of books, quizzes, and curriculum. “Our content is digitally native and modular, which can be easily customized and organized to fit any curriculum. It also looks and works seamlessly across all devices,” explicates Diaz.

With a strong leadership team that spans content and pedagogy, technology, client services, sales, business development, and management, Boundless is constantly innovating to add more features to its existing cloud platform. Diaz affirms the textbook market will transform in the next five years as the company plans to expand its content coverage to go beyond general education. “Being digitally-native, we have no legacy products or content to maintain, and that gives us tremendous freedom and opportunity to focus on how content and technology should work in today’s age, not yesterday’s,” concludes Diaz.
