Eliademy at caribbean islands

At this institution, students are taught various subjects and skills. Teachers seek to integrate Information Communication Technology(ICT) in the classroom & according to their opinion: Eliademy is the ideal solution.

We are very happy to see this small island and their teachers embracing 21st century solutions. We are even happier that Eliademy is used by all age groups, nationalities and that one can have an opportunity to high quality education no matter where they are located.

Soon we will update also our mobile client for offline reading (estimated delivery May 2015) so we can make it easier for students to continue learning at home without internet. Stay tuned to our updates and participate to our localisation efforts or simply to the discussion on what to build next.
