To create a service for delivering digital content to students via a mobile application and content management system. To provide a tool for students to collaborate and share content, and for institutions to easily communicate with students on a course or department level.
The Mobile App
The Imano mobile app allows students to register as part of their study institution, and gain access to books and materials assigned to their course choices. The bookstore within the app provides a listing of all books available for their course, and students can download the books to their device and read offline using the Imano app. Students have access to their assigned course books as well as similar course books recommended to them. When reading the books students can underline, comment, add bookmarks within their specific copy of the book.
The Edge+ section within the app provides additional learning material from their institution including useful articles, video, audio and image content. The “My Portal” section encourages collaboration between students of the same course or department via an interactive forum.
The Content Management System
The Imano content management system provides institutions with a web-based tool to deliver content to students at a department and course level. Books are loaded via PDF or EPUB format, which allows the books to be divided into chapters and also allows students to add annotations.
Institutions can manage their departments, courses and students via a user friendly web-based dashboard. User access can also be granted at a department level for each institution.
Content providers not part of an institution can load books into the Imano system for students to purchase in addition or as part of their course material.

Very knowledgeable and meticulous team. Their designs and executions are amazing, but what I’ve valued most working with them is the sense of integrity and honesty in the organization. For me, that is most crucial when working with technical people.
