Third Generation Platform Specifically Designed for Education Marketplace
LAS VEGAS, NV, JANUARY 10, 2013 — Copia has unveiled its multi-publisher, socially connected eBook and digital content platform that can be customized for educational institutions, hardware partners and retailers. Copia’s platform is especially significant at CES 2013, where there is a pronounced focus on educational technology and the challenges of effectively delivering burgeoning digital content to the marketplace.
Copia, a socially driven platform that allows publishers to provide users with a custom interactive experience fueled by content, community and commerce, is a pioneer in educational technology. Copia currently has a presence in approximately 1,000 college campuses and is powering for its partners’ K-12 platforms in the United States, Spain, Australia and Brazil.
"Our unified, technologically strong multi-publisher platform provides real value to both publishing and consumer electronics partners and is years ahead of competitors who are just now thinking about the challenges of cohesively putting educational content on personal computers and mobile devices," said Ben Lowinger, EVP of Copia. “I think our solution is particularly compelling to educational publishers because it allows them to serve and monetize all types of content through one platform. Students only need one app to consume all the content they need or want to maximize the educational benefits of digital content.”
Copia’s content library has undergone explosive multi-genre growth in the form of e-books, videos, native apps, virtual courses and more. The company’s platform on display at CES is a third generation product, in a space that is now garnering significant attention.
"What I find most amazing is the manner in which digital content has captured the hearts and minds of CES,” said Andrew Lowinger, CEO of Copia parent company DMC Capital Funding. “This is DMC’s 42nd consecutive year exhibiting at CES and we are thrilled that our company has read the tea leaves and has such a powerful solution already in place for what is clearly an emerging, important category."
Copia is on display at booth 11612 in the CES Central Hall.
Further solidifying Copia’s leadership position in education, Joann Spyker, Copia’s Vice President of Sales and Higher Education, will appear on the Higher EdTECH panel, “Dewey to Digital: Expectations vs. Experience” on Thursday morning in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center
