Kivuto, a leading provider of academic digital resources, has partnered with Pearson, Canada’s leading educational publisher, to open access to digital resources during the current COVID-19 pandemic. At a time when educational institutions, public spaces, and collaborative environments are closing to help combat the spread of COVID-19, individuals will have complimentary access to these important digital learning resources to continue their online learning.
“For several years, Kivuto and Pearson have partnered to enhance the digital learning experience by offering access to curriculum-based K-12 textbooks covering such topics as literacy, math and science via Kivuto’s Texidium platform and eReader,” said Jeff Blacklock, president and COO at Kivuto. “We are now extending these learning resources to teachers, students, and school boards so they can continue to immerse themselves into a truly digital learning environment.”
Starting today, via Kivuto’s Texidium platform, access to more than 70 of the most widely used curriculum-based K-12 textbooks will be available as an open resource for families to access. These resources can be downloaded to a central location where you can manage and learn through an enriched eReader experience.
Open access to these resources will be available until May 30, 2020, and can be accessed at www.pearsoncanada.ca/athome.
Kivuto announces that it has entered into a strategic partnership with NERCOMP, a nonprofit consortium focused on technology acquisitions by higher education IT professionals. Through this partnership, Kivuto will have exposure to NERCOMP’s higher educational institution members across the northeastern United States, who will have access to purchasing Kivuto Cloud through NERCOMP.
Cloud license management and provisioning is a challenge for academic IT departments as it is difficult to actively manage those who have access, the length of time and amount of access, and the rules around software license use.
Kivuto Cloud addresses these challenges, empowering educational institutions to effortlessly deliver both product key license verification and distribution, and named user license distribution. Kivuto Cloud allows organizations to manage, distribute, and recover costs on any digital resource in a single cloud-based platform.
Jeff Blacklock, president at Kivuto, said:
“NERCOMP is one of the largest education
consortiums focused on technology acquisitions in the US, so we are excited to
be partnering with them. Through this partnership, Kivuto will have access to
NERCOMP’s 300 educational institution members and will have ongoing exposure to
them though various activities and events. This is an important strategic
partnership for Kivuto.”
Kevin Brassard, chair of NERCOMP, said:
“We are so pleased to have Kivuto on board as a
NERCOMP partner, and that our members will have access to Kivuto Cloud. Because
we take the time to vet all of our partners, our members can be assured that we
see Kivuto is a trusted vendor, and that Kivuto Cloud is a key technology that
they should evaluate for use within their organizations.”
