Exo U Launches 1:1 Management Platform
Exo U has launched the Exo U Digital Education Platform, a tool designed for management of 1:1 and BYOD initiatives.
Available both online and off, the platform is designed to create a learner-centered, classroom-focused "operating system" available on
most devices. Able to integrate with a school or district's existing learning management and student information systems, the platform allows
for enterprise-level distribution of apps and instructional materials.
The ability for teachers to easily share content and see student activity and engagement;
- Seamless access to open educational resources;
- An administrator console that allows administrators to add users and accounts, build a private app library, configure servers and more;
- A classroom app for teachers with visual roll call, notifications when students leave the workspace, the ability to lock student screens
- An app designed to help in lesson creation;
- A notes app for both teachers and students;
- The ability to create written or verbal quizzes;
- One-touch sharing with the ability for teachers to control what materials are shared, as well as sharing to individuals or groups; and
- Browser, PDF and library apps.
"One key goal for the Digital Education Platform was to help schools and districts minimize costs and time associated with technology
implementation and training — while making it possible for them leverage the investments they've already made in devices, content and tools,"
said Ken Chen, vice president of product management, in a prepared statement. "With more affordability, faster implementation and dramatically
reduced requirements for training, administrators can deliver best-in-class resources and tools across the district, supporting equity and
effective technology access for every learner."
