HONG KONG, CHINA – UMeWorld Limited (OTCQB:UMEWF), China’s top 100 online education company, today announced the beta launch of UEXiao™, a cloud-based, K-12 education platform that combines student information (SIS) management with learning management (LMS), assessment and data analytics tools all in one single platform, supporting the Ministry of Education’s K-12 target of universal Educational Digitization in China by 2020.
According to 2015 MOE statistics, there were 491,500 schools and 200.46 million students in China’s K-12 system. By 2020, all K-12 schools in China are mandated to have access to broadband internet, In-class multi-media devices and systems and a safe, ecologically “green” and a digitally integrated learning environment. All students are to have access to individualized internet-based learning services, regardless of their location in the entire country.
Although most Chinese K-12 schools have invested heavily in hardware equipment, the lack of advanced software tools has caused under-utilization of this technology and inhibited operational and educational efficiencies. UEXiao is designed to support personalized learning, improve instruction, and streamline access to information to all K-12 stakeholders and thus address these issues.
UEXiao enables an environment that fosters the implementation of personalized learning programs for each student in individual school districts, on a massive scale that was previously unthinkable. Working with school districts and their teachers, UEXiao’s all-in-one solution is helping educators to create a one-on-one learning experience for each student, personalized instruction that once seemed unachievable.
UMeWorld will leverage its strong UMFun user base, which consists of 9.2 million students, parents and teacher users, and its strategic partnerships with China Mobile and The South China Normal University, to achieve a broad utilization of UEXiao in K-12 schools.
Furthermore, UEXiao’s core features are available free of charge, because every school, no matter how big or small its budget, should have access to the best tools available. The free features include more than 45 core SIS/LMS functions. Additional specialized add-on functions are available for a monthly subscription fee. UEXiao works on most devices with a Web browser, including Windows and Mac computers, iPads and Android tablets. The company plans to introduce new features every few months based on educator feedback and schools’ evolving needs.
UMeWorld is China’s leading education technology company with a focus on the K-12 education market. UMFun, the Company’s K-12 flagship product, is China’s first K-12 adaptive learning and assessment platform that is proven to accelerate student learning in a fun and engaging manner. UMFun’s off-school version is made available to Chinese K-12 students through China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile service provider by network scale and subscriber base, serving over 823,000,000 customers.
