ODILO brings reading technology to over 3,000 Uruguay schools

Denver, CO, March 30, 2017 - ODILO, the Spanish startup tech company which allows management, distribution, consumption, auditing, and preservation of all types of digital content (eBooks, audio, video, images, documents, etc.), has been selected as the content and technology supplier for the Plan Ceibal (http://www.ceibal.edu.uy/) in Uruguay (South America). This new project with ODILO provides students with free digital content and improves technical literacy, reading skills, and access to education.

The Plan Ceibal program uses ODILO technology to manage multiple digital content providers within a single platform, and provide students with easy access to required resources. "Students and teachers can access thousands of titles through the innovative digital platform designed just for them," said Rodrigo Rodríguez, CEO and ODILO founder. "They can also measure the impact and statistics of all digital content use."

ODILO has already started implementing the project in over 3,000 public educational centers in Uruguay, which will provide three years of digital content access to more than 600,000 students (http://bibliotecadigital.ceibal.edu.uy/). In April 2017, ODILO will add a collaborative reading platform, allowing students, teachers, and families the ability to interact with content, monitor reading history, and improve reading comprehension through different gamification strategies.
