Compass Learning Puts Digital Content into Hands of More Students with Google Chromebooks With Award-Winning CompassLearning Odyssey® Accessible Through Chromebooks and Chrome Browser, Districts Can More Easily and Cost-Effectively Put Rigorous Digital Content into Hands of Each Student Business Wire AUSTIN, Texas -- April 08, 2013 Compass Learning®, the company that unlocks every student’s potential for academic achievement and personal growth by personalizing learning, today announced that its award-winning educational software, CompassLearning Odyssey®, is available for Google Chromebooks and other tablets and devices running the Chrome browser. “Combining engaging digital content, like CompassLearning Odyssey, with the Chromebook provides our students with access to personalized learning opportunities that did not exist a few short years ago,” said Jacob Givand, online learning facilitator with Robbinsdale Area Schools in New Hope, MN. “Technology is an important element to inspire and engage all learners. Technology also empowers teachers to manage both the classroom and the needs of individual students. With the combination of Chromebooks and CompassLearning Odyssey, we are realizing the vision of one-to-one computing; we are raising the level of learning and achievement in our district.” Using CompassLearning Odyssey on a Chromebook provides students with anytime access to lessons and activities personalized to their strengths and proficiency level. Built-in Odyssey assessments let teachers efficiently and effectively monitor student achievement and needs in order to adjust the learning environment accordingly. Chromebooks are optimized for the Web’s vast educational resources. Educators can integrate rich content into lessons, inspire collaboration, and encourage students to create and share their own content with the world. Chromebooks deliver a rich experience that is easy to use with fast start-up times; they provide a simple, scalable, and affordable way to put technology into the hands of more students and teachers. “By simplifying technology and providing teachers greater access to information on student achievement through Odyssey, we are giving teachers more time to focus on what they do best – help students learn,” explained Givand. Chromebooks are rapidly being adopted in the K–12 education sector due in part to lower IT costs, the reduced time it takes to administer and deploy changes across classrooms, and the security advantages of Google’s Chrome OS. Support for Chrome browser and Chromebooks is part of Compass Learning’s commitment to provide rigorous and engaging digital content and curriculum to districts and classrooms across the country as schools transition to learning environments in which laptops, tablets, smart phones, and other mobile devices play a central role in education. The support can also make it easier for districts to embrace the technology infrastructure of the Common Core State Standards. “Today’s students are more mobile and connected than ever before, and they demand that their educational tools and systems support that way of life,” added Eric Loeffel, CEO of Compass Learning. “We are excited to support students, teachers, and administrators who have chosen Chromebooks by adding to the foundation of technology and access that Google is creating. Together with our customers we are building a platform for education that empowers teachers to better manage the classroom, gives teachers more time to fulfill their aspirations as teachers, and at the same time makes learning more exciting and personal for every student.” CompassLearning Odyssey offers full student, teacher, and administrator support for customers using the Google Chromebook and other devices running the Chrome browser. Compass Learning will continue to work in close partnership with device vendors and district customers to deliver award-winning digital content to students, teachers, and school districts around the country across multiple platforms and devices.
