Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
A new partnership between Knomadix and J. M. LeBel Publishers will make high school science curriculum come to life for millions of K-12 students already using tablets, smart phones, and other interactive devices. LeBel—Dallas, Texas-based publisher of high school science textbooks—will leverage the Knomadix content creation platform and mobile classroom apps to create and deliver high quality, interactive exercises, providing an engaging learning experience for students. These new digital interactive exercises will empower high school teachers to create and deliver personalized learning experiences for students on tablets and other interactive devices.
Schools are faced with the daunting challenge of transitioning from a previously, paper-based classroom to a digital classroom. Knomadix's vision is to help schools smoothly transition from paper to digital by making digital classroom content interactive, intelligent, and easily customizable based on individual classroom and student's needs. This in turn provides the teachers, curriculum specialists, and content developers the freedom to easily create high quality interactive content that maximizes the use of student tablets and other interactive devices inside classrooms.
The partnership between Knomadix and Lebel means teachers currently using the Knomadix platform will have immediate access to pre-built interactive exercises for high school subjects including Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, and Physics. This partnership represents the first of a series of publisher alliances for Knomadix, that aims to make high quality interactive content across multiple subjects and multiple grade levels readily available on the Knomadix mobile content platform.
“LeBel Publishers and Knomadix have highly complementary missions of delivering high quality content and creating engaging digital interactive learning experiences for K-12 classrooms. Knomadix will bring new interactive learning opportunities to thousands of classrooms using Lebel content, but more importantly, to the millions of students who have access to tablets and smartphones,” said René Le Bel, President of LeBel Publishers. “We believe at LeBel bringing high quality interactive content on tablets and smartphones is the wave of the future, and will transform how students learn and how teachers teach. We are excited to join hands with an innovative company like Knomadix, and be part of this transformation.”
“We are pleased to partner with LeBel Publishers to help teachers make an effective transition from their paper-based textbooks and activities to a truly interactive digital curriculum,” said Ramesh Balan, Knomadix CEO and founder. “LeBel is known for their engaging science content. With Knomadix integrated into LeBel’s content, our combined vision is to give teachers the ability to gain instant access to high quality, digital interactive content which can be customized, depending on classroom and individual student’s needs. We are truly excited about this model of closely partnering with leading publishers and helping them quickly and cost effectively transform their content using the Knomadix mobile content platform.”
The Knomadix Platform: Knomadix has created a disruptive platform, embracing the native capabilities of touch-enabled devices across multiple OS platforms, and provides content creators and end users the flexibility and freedom to create intelligent, customized content. Unlike static e-Textbook creation tools like Apple iBooks Author, Knomadix enables the creation and distribution of interactive learning content with meaningful assessment and feedback to each end-user.
Once the digital conversion is complete, LeBel’s content will be available on both Lebel.com, as well as in the Knomadix content marketplace for teachers to download.
Knomadix was founded in 2013 to build an interactive mobile content platform that transforms how educators teach and how students learn in K-12 schools. With its fresh approach to creating and delivering customized digital content, Knomadix is leading the emerging mobile education market with learning aids and classroom tools for teachers, curriculum specialists, content developers, and publishers.
Knomadix goes beyond digital textbooks to make the mobile learning environment a customizable teaching tool. This increases the value to schools adopting mobile devices, maximizes their usefulness in classrooms, and increases teacher's ability to personalize content for individual students. Currently, Knomadix is working with leading mobile device manufacturers, innovative school districts, and traditional publishers to bring high quality, interactive digital content to life for deployment on tablets and other interactive devices in K-12 classrooms across the country.

About LeBel Publishers:
LeBel was founded in 1971 as a children’s book publisher and quickly moved into the much higher margin business of publishing science work-a-texts and textbooks. The company’s first state adoption in Texas was obtained in 1988, and was a major turning point for the company with publication of the first ever high school level environmental science textbook. In the last couple of years, the textbook business has been seriously disrupted by innovative technology arriving in schools and the increasing demands from teachers and students to create more engaging learning experiences. As a result, LeBel is currently looking at opportunities to leverage its high quality content and through strategic partnerships, effectively transition to address the interactive digital content needs for the 21st century classroom.
