Education company changes online learning through mobile technology

SOLARO learning application provides access to curriculum-relevant educational material through the web, iPhone, iPad, other handheld devices and computers.

EDMONTON, April 28 /CNW/ - Castle Rock Research Corp. announces the launch of SOLARO in Canada. The SOLARO educational application is available online and provides content completely aligned with regional curriculum. Curriculum alignment means SOLARO supports exactly what students learn in the classroom.

Available through the web and handheld devices such as iPhone and iPad, SOLARO enables students to study for exams anytime and anywhere. Proprietary technology in SOLARO allows students to download content and continue to study where an internet connection is unavailable.

Content on SOLARO includes intuitive, interactive multimedia, text and graphics that are searchable and organized by study topics. Students can also set goals, make notes and help their peers through content-related discussion forums. Student progress is recognized through a rewards program. Parents are able to monitor the progress of their children through the web and their own handheld devices.

"We have been developing SOLARO for the past 5 years and today is a very exciting day in the history of our company," said Castle Rock President, Gautam Rao. "By creating SOLARO, study materials are now where students are, on the web and online. Whether a student is riding the bus home or in between classes, they can study there. Our focus on technology will allow us to break down the barriers to providing exceptional educational resources worldwide."
