What is the idea behind alphaben?

smart reading for kids.

alphaben is a reading app for children that increases both reading motivation and reading comprehension. Each child gets custom book recommendations based on their personal interests and their individual reading level. Each book includes child-friendly word explanations and exciting quizzes to improve reading skills. Children are rewarded for their reading performance with points and reading badges.

Making reading measurable

We offer you the possibility to look at the reading behavior of the individual students both individually and objectively by means of different analyses.

Simple class management

Whether it's resetting passwords or analyzing student performance in detail - with alphaben it's now possible in seconds.

Whether you are a teacher or an administrator ("alphaben representative") - in your personal dashboard you have everything available at a glance.

Diverse library
