‘I’m an educator who wants to help people learn’
Experian is getting into the learning experience business, the company announced on Monday.
The financial services company, which specializes in credit reporting and consumer credit, will start offering its Boost App and Credit Bureau apps on Tuesday to help teachers, students, parents, and others learn about credit scores and other financial products.
“We are focused on providing the most advanced learning experience to our customers,” said Julie DeHaan, vice president of consumer services.
“Our customers love the Boost App because it allows them to view and access all their credit scores in real time.
It’s an experience that they can get to without the worry of leaving home.”
Experian will also be rolling out an extensive portfolio of credit scoring products and apps, including the new Experian Credit Report, for schools and teachers, to help them stay up to date with the latest credit scores.
We’re excited to add these two key components to our portfolio of products and services to support educators, teachers, and students in helping their students learn,” she said.”
With the Boost app, teachers and parents can share the scores of their children with their classmates, students in the classroom, and their community of educators.”

The Boost App, which is available in the U.S. and Canada, provides students with the ability to view credit scores of friends and family members.
Students can then compare their scores and access personalized feedback, as well as other valuable information.
Experian has been providing students with a mobile version of its Credit Report since July 2014.
DeHaans also announced the launch of Experian’s Learning Experience Platform.
The platform will be available in English, Spanish, French, Chinese, and Portuguese, and it will be the first platform in the world that will allow teachers and students to learn about how their learning experience has evolved.
The Learning Experience platform will allow students to create, review, and share a video series of short lessons about learning that are based on real-life experiences.
Experian will be partnering with the National Center for Teaching and Learning, a nonprofit organization that develops educational technology and supports learning.
At the same time, DeHaann said, she said the company will be working to make the Boost and Credit Report apps available to other educational organizations.
The company said that it will also make it easier for teachers to access and use the Boost apps on other devices.
