InfoComm - EXO U Announces Launch Dates For Ormiboard - Whiteboarding & Activity Building Platform To Launch at InfoComm, ISTE
Ormiboard will aslo be made available inside of EXO U's flagship teaching platform, Ormi.
MONTREAL, May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - EXO U Inc. ("EXO U" or the "Corporation") (TSXV: EXO), today announced launch dates and activities for Ormiboard, its new Whiteboarding software for K-12 classrooms and professional learning environments with interactive displays. Ormiboard will aslo be made available inside of EXO U's flagship teaching platform, Ormi.
Ormiboard captures a set of key features in Ormi, EXO U's Mobile engagement platform, and reintegrates them into a powerful software that runs online or via installed download. Recognizing that millions of classrooms are shifting from Interactive Whiteboards to Interactive (often multitouch) Displays, Ormiboard enables educators to work with what they have, using classic tools or leap into Ormiboard's interactive games and activity-building functions.
Ormiboard further enables Whole Class Teaching through the use of pre-built games and activities, easily synced with Google Classroom, DropBox, Evernote, and other common teacher-used cloud services. Ormiboard easily connects Interactive Displays with student devices without requiring any downloads. This enables easy sharing, group editing, rapid quizzing and ping-pong collaboration capabilities in seconds with any internet connected device (PIN registration).
EXO U will host an industry-focused launch concurrent with Infocomm 2016, June 4 - 10th in Las Vegas. InfoComm is the USA's premier launch and demo event for the A/V and presentation technology marketplace. Demonstrations will be provided on the show floor and EXO U's senior management team will be on site to conduct direct meetings with potential distributors for Ormi and Ormiboard.
EXO U will make Ormiboard available for purchase at the ISTE Conference, June 26-29, 2016 in Denver, Colorado. ISTE is the USA's largest conference for K-12 educational technology. Ormiboard will presented as both a stand-alone solution and with Ormi, with partner launch events, media previews and demonstrations on the tradeshow floor. Specific times and locations will be announced in June.
Kevin Pawsey, CEO of EXO U stated, "During our discussions with potential partners in the marketplace, it became obvious that a simplified subset of the Ormi platform was getting people excited and was aligned with their existing customer needs. As a result, we used our internal resources to create Ormiboard. Ormiboard will continue to be an integral part of Ormi, and Ormiboard customers will be given easy and incentivized upgrade paths to Ormi over time. This multi-pronged approach, along with our summer launch of Ormi U, broadens EXO U's target market for its Ormi platform products by more than double our previous reach. We are working hard to get Ormiboard in front of as many potential partners as possible before and after InfoComm 2016."
