Bring your own device (BYOD) allows educational institutions to preserve their budgets by strategically passing most of mobile device investment and maintenance costs to the students. In return, students benefit from interactive student/teacher engagements, and the ability to learn at their own pace on their preferred device by actively participating into their learning experience. Although a multitude of BYOD educational tools and apps exist, a problem remained until recently – binding the devices to one platform so that teachers can control the mobile devices within the classroom. We provide a detailed look at the education technology “edtech” market and how it relates to BYOD and classroom management. We also highlight how EXO U, a Sophic Capital client, has developed a collaborative solution that places control of all BYOD mobile device into teachers’ hands, centralizes content for a seamless cross-platform experience and most importantly engages students on their platform of choice.
