Our Mission

Transforming the Educational Experience

HLT was sparked by paper flashcards that Alec Whitters, Co-Founder and CEO, and his peers were using to study for their dental boards. Wouldn’t it make better sense, he thought, to use their smartphones to study? When he didn’t find an effective mobile-learning solution, he decided to create it. HLT was born.

Our Mission: to empower learners by delivering an innovative and captivating educational experience.

mLearning Leads to mPowerment

Our platform delivers what students want: the power to use their mobile devices to study anytime, anywhere for the most important exams and courses of their lives.
