We set out to completely reimagine the learning experience with a student-centric mindset, allowing students to learn more and engage in more meaningful ways with the course material and with each other - ambi founder and CEO Saad El Yamani
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) June 12, 2019
EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, today announced that it has selected ambi, a company making education more accessible, engaging, and collaborative for people at school, work – and beyond, as the winner of its “Next-Gen School Solution Provider of the Year” award in the inaugural EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.
The award recognizes ambi’s Learner Engagement Platform, a new system built to engage students and empower them to get the most out of their college experience. The ambi interface mirrors the social networking and digital environments in which students live, and tightly integrates with learning management systems and other systems of records.
“Ambi ‘breaks through’ the crowded EdTech market with a fresh idea around their Learner Engagement Platform, combining the learning content from the LMS with a centralized and engaging platform for peer-to-peer support and collaboration,” said James Johnson, managing director at EdTech Breakthrough. “We are thrilled to award ambi with our Next-Gen School Solution Provider of the Year award and we look forward to continued innovation in the EdTech market from the company.”
The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Award is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, e-Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 1,500 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world.
“The next generation of students deserve a learning tool that keeps up with the times and allows them to learn in the same ways they live,” said ambi founder and CEO Saad El Yamani. “Education technology products have been generally developed with a teacher or faculty perspective. While this is not altogether wrong, many products end up feeling prescriptive and limited to students. We set out to completely reimagine the learning experience with a student-centric mindset, allowing students to learn more and engage in more meaningful ways with the course material and with each other. We are pleased to receive this award in recognition of our progress in developing our Learner Engagement Platform.”
The visionary founders of ambi recognized that this organization-first structure of the LMS in their own college courses did nothing to inspire creativity, collaboration or engagement. In fact, it was clear that most students were disengaged with education technology, threatening student’s success and the ability to graduate. Ambi’s founders built a tool to foster collaboration and communication between students, build a campus community outside of individual courses and encourage the kind of peer-to-peer interaction that is so pivotal in making college the enriching experience it promises to be.
Ambi was designed to be as secure, compliant and flexible as possible to meet the needs of higher education and K-12 and is FERPA- and WCAG 2.0-compliant. To learn more about ambi as a solution for today’s higher education environment, click here.
