Company’s Distance-Learning Software Platform Helps To Make Education More Accessible
AMVONET (www.amvonet.com), a software company whose distance-learning technology has the potential to make education more accessible and affordable, has received $250,000 from nonprofit venture development organization JumpStart Inc. (www.jumpstartinc.org). The Alliance, Ohio-based company’s main product is a comprehensive, fully-integrated software suite called the AMVONET Learning Content Management System.
The AMVONET Learning Content Management System is comprised of three distinct but complementary components. AMVONET Manageis a teaching toolkit instructors can use to manage students and their grades, as well as generate progress reports. AMVONET Connect is a real-time communication platform which acts as a virtual classroom; students can interact with teachers and peers via audio, video or text chat; collaborate live on platforms such as PowerPoint; and record these sessions for later viewing. Finally, AMVONET Publish lets users add multimedia elements to videos they recorded using AMVONET Connect, as well as add dynamic action, using a patent-pending technology called Interactive Points (iPoints).
“Today, more and more people are worrying about how to access and pay for a quality education,” says AMVONET President, CEO and Founder Vadim Eelen. “Thankfully, technology is making it easier to transmit knowledge. AMVONET leverages digital advancements in order to create an interactive, comprehensive classroom experience—anywhere and at any time.” In addition to the K-12 and higher education markets, AMVONET offers distance-learning solutions for the healthcare and business industries, specifically corporate training, online collaboration sessions and interactive recordings.
