EIDU has developed a mobile learning platform and an implementation program for low-income countries, focused on improving numeracy and literacy. The new open EIDU Contributor Platform will enable researchers to contribute and research personalization algorithms. Moreover, it will allow for education research on underserved communities, such as schools in informal settlements and remote villages, in turn helping to narrow opportunity gaps. EIDU Contributor provides a quick feedback cycle of build, measure, and learn using an automated submission and evaluation system.
Founder and CTO, EIDUFor 25 years, Bernd Roggendorf has been founding and leading successful market leader tech companies. Then 9 years ago he turned his focus to the underprivileged and lived with his wife and his two daughters for several months in Kibera, one of the biggest slums in Africa. There he learned firsthand how quality education could make a fundamental difference in the lives of millions of children. Combined with the proliferation of mobile devices even in the most remote areas, he saw the chance to improve learning outcomes on a global scale: EIDU was born.
