EXO U announces launch dates for Ormi - New, Easy-To-Use BYOD Teaching Platform Will Launch at BETT, TCEA

MONTREAL, Jan. 20, 2016 /CNW/ - EXO U Inc. ("EXO U") (TSXV: EXO), the leader in mobile learning solutions for multi-device learning spaces, today announced launch dates and activities for Ormi, an advanced mobile engagement platform designed to make classroom teaching in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments easier and better than ever before. Available in multiple languages for limited worldwide distribution, Ormi's first launch takes place Thursday, January 21nd, at the BETT Conference in London, UK.

Ormi, a Greek term which literally translates to "momentum", was engineered from day one with the teacher in mind – to minimize steps and eliminate common interruptions, preserving the teacher's focus and flow so students stay engaged. Ormi introduces a different kind of BYOD management, because it was designed to mimic the way teachers naturally teach – so devices and device management never get in the way of learning. With beautifully simple content sharing and collaboration capabilities, Ormi transforms the BYOD classroom entirely by placing the teacher in complete control. Full platform details will accompany Ormi's next announcement on Thursday.

Ahead of each launch, EXO U will host a digital hub to capture the best ideas, solutions and models from the global education community. Moderated by Ken Royal, educators are invited to participate in the live discussion on twitter and in blogs. EXO U expects the initiative to help check the global pulse on BYOD, and integrate the posts/ideas/input that educators vote up. Listen in on Twitter #BYODedu and follow the discussion or contribute ideas at www.letssolvebyod.com

EXO U CEO Kevin Pawsey stated, "We've been hard at work, strengthening our education team, signing up manufacturing and reseller partnerships, listening in to educator feedback, and diligently testing the platform. We learned a lot, that most teachers struggle with other BYOD solutions because sharing is slow, classroom management tools distract from the lesson, and technical issues drive up costs and complexity. Ormi solves these problems, and many more. Through distribution agreements with Panasonic, QOMO, and others soon to be announced, thousands of teachers will begin the fall term with Ormi already installed in their classrooms."
