NeoSoar develops “eTextbooks for Education” platform for students, schools and publishers
Introducing the NeoSoar platform to Publishers, Universities and students, allows the following:
The NeoSoar platform is comprised of a multi-tenant, highly available and scalable cloud-based back-end server farm for use by schools and publishers, and a front-end client app for students:
As they do this, the corresponding eTextbooks are automatically downloaded into the front-end app, which is an EPUB and PDF viewer built by NeoSoar using the Adobe Reader Mobile SDK from Datalogics. The NeoSoar app is available for iOS, Android and Windows OS.
The NeoSoar platform was launched in late 2011 through a pilot program at one school with 9 publishers, 130 students and teachers, and over 1300 eTextbooks being managed through the system. Performance and scalability supported this initial rollout; and in March 2012 NeoSoar launched to an addition 164 universities in Taiwan.
“The advantage of our system,” states John Liang, General Manager at NeoSoar Inc., “is that as more schools join the system, publishers have access to a wider audience. And the converse is also true: as more publishers join the system, the value to schools (and thus students) also increases since they have access to a wider range of titles. This is why we see it as a win/win/win for publishers, schools and students.”
