Enroll Your Learners for the
Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition

You can now enroll your learners into the XPRIZE winning app Learning Upgrade at no cost with the COABE XPRIZE Code 1177

Learners have access to 21 courses including English, math, and GED® / HiSET® prep. You can track the progress of each learner with detailed reports.

To sign up for an XPRIZE tracking account, just fill in this form. You will receive an email with instructions.


If you signed up for a Learning Upgrade pilot with the COABE XPRIZE Team Code 1177, your program could win a $1,000 award! The program with the highest number of new learners enrolled and active each month will win the prize.

The key to winning is to start onboarding your learners and motivate them to complete lessons. Here are some tips and best practices:

  1. Read this post with instructions, videos, and flyers to help you onboard your learners

  2. Watch the COABE XPRIZE Webinar

  3. Schedule “onboarding parties” to enroll your learners. Make sure they install the Learning Upgrade app on their phone before the party.

  4. At the party, hand out your printed flyer with the 7-digit class code, and have each learner go through the self-enrollment steps.

  5. Have each learner complete 1 lesson at the onboarding party so they feel comfortable with the program and count towards your active learners for the monthly prize.

  6. Sign in to your teacher account to track progress with the Student Monitor.

  7. Follow up with students who are not completing lessons and motivate them to start.

The prize will be awarded monthly to the program with the highest number of new learners who have completed lessons. Awards run through Aug 31, 2019.
