Spotlight is an AWS Platform-as-a-Service that creates animated videos for millions of parents that explains the test results of their students in multiple languages.

Customers include State Education Agencies, school districts and other assessment companies. (see www.spotlight-education.com)

Early in 2021,Spotlight was acquired by Pearson NCS, the world's largest learning company. As a result, our business has tripled, with continued growth anticipated in 2022.
