Intel has announced the acquisition of Kno, an education software and e-textbook platform company, in a bid to support technology adoption in the classroom.
Intel said the acquisition supports Intel Education’s strategic effort to develop an ecosystem of hardware, software and digital content, specifically designed to help students learn, while offering educators tools to effectively integrate technology into the classroom.
“The acquisition boosts Intel’s global digital content library to more than 225,000 higher education and K-12 titles through existing partnerships with 75 educational publishers,” said John Galvin, vice president of the sales and marketing group at Intel Corporation.
“Even more, the Kno platform gives administrators and teachers the tools they need to easily assign, manage and monitor their digital learning initiatives.”
Galvin said Intel looks forward to combining its expertise with Kno’s rich content so they can help teachers create classroom environments and personalised learning experiences that lead to student success.
