Intel Corp. has completed the acquisition of Kno, a leading developer of education software. This acquisition supports Intel Education's strategic effort to develop an ecosystem of hardware, software and digital content specifically designed to help students learn, while offering educators tools to effectively integrate technology into the classroom.
The acquisition boosts Intel's global digital content library to more than 225 thousand higher education and K-12 titles through existing partnerships with 75 educational publishers. Even more, the Kno platform gives administrators and teachers the tools they need to easily assign, manage and monitor their digital learning initiatives.
“At Intel Education, our mission is to support the rapid technology adoption in the classroom. I am excited to announce the newest resource in the Intel Education offering. Intel has acquired Kno, a leading education-software company whose guiding mission is to change the way students learn. Much like Intel, Kno believes engagement is key to student success,” said John Galvin, vice president of the sales and marketing group at Intel and general manager of the World Ahead program.
Intel is working to create an ecosystem of hardware, software and digital content specifically designed to help students learn and to offer educators the tools to effectively integrate technology into the classroom. This work is based on over a decade of experience working with teachers and students. Intel has already helped prepare more than 10 million teachers around the world to bring technology into their classrooms.
