Nelson forms exclusive Canadian partnership with new EdTech company EssayJack Inc.

TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2016 /CNW/ - Nelson, Canada's leading publisher of innovative learning resources for educators and students ranging from pre-kindergarten to university and college, has signed an exclusive partnership with newly launched educational technology company, EssayJack. Launched in Canada in 2015, EssayJack was developed by two award-winning professors, Dr. Lindy Ledohowski, OCT (BA, BEd, MA, PhD) and Dr. R. Rueban Balasubramaniam (LLB, MPhil, SJD), and is ranked as one of the top teaching digital innovations in the world by the British Council and Cambridge English.

Proven in research, student's grades significantly improved when using the new web-based platform, with its easy to follow pre-structured text boxes, tips and prompts that quickly and easily guide a student through the thinking and structure of writing a highly, successful essay. The platform is also interactive, allowing teachers to collaborate, monitor and help students along the way in tackling the writing of an essay – as well as allowing students within the classroom to collaborate and share essays when needed. The entire EssayJack platform can be customized by educators and allows for rubric-based feedback.

"Our partnership with EssayJack exemplifies our commitment to delivering innovative, digital solutions that empower students with the tools they need to excel along their educational journey." stated Steve Brown, Nelson's CEO & President.

"EssayJack has been a significant success to date, launching in Canada and now globally," said Dr. Lindy Ledohowski, Co-founder & CEO of EssayJack. "There was a significant need out there to help educators and students in the teaching and writing process of creating excellent essays. The platform can be absolutely customized by educators and students now feel more empowered with substantially reduced stress and anxiety when it comes to writing an essay. Nelson is a perfect fit for EssayJack, and we are excited about joining this highly established, educational leader in Canada."
