Kivuto Expands Digital Textbook Resources in India with Texidium Platform

OTTAWA, Ontario — April 19, 2016 — Texidium, Canada’s most comprehensive digital textbook platform, is expanding its eText and eReader resources to students in India through Galgotias University.

With Texidium, students can access their school notes, readings, and academic resources digitally – anytime, anywhere, and on any device, both online and offline. Developed by Kivuto Solutions in collaboration with leading publishers such as Nelson Education and Pearson, Texidium gives schools the tools they need to improve student success and cut costs at the same time.

The Texidium eReader is in use by many educational institutions across Canada. The largest implementation is at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada, where over 55,000 eTexts are distributed to nearly 14,000 students. Content for Texidium in India will initially be available through Pearson India and Cengage Learning India with other publishers to follow.

“Investing in India means investing in the future of education. By 2025, India will have 120 million students ready to enter university,” says Richard White, President of Kivuto. “We’re very excited to work with Galgotias University to shape the classrooms of tomorrow.”

Galgotias University has been committed to preparing India’s future business and technology leaders with cutting-edge tools from day one. Founded in 2011, the University is home to approximately 10,000 students. Galgotias Business School has been featured in Dun & Bradstreet as a leading business school, and Galgotias graduates have a 100% placement rate with global firms such as IBM, Samsung, and Accenture among others.
