Edtech startup Learningonline.xyz nominated for 2nd year running for FEM EMMAs (Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards)
CUPERTINO, CA, UNITED STATES, March 13, 2017 — According to Deloitte, technology has the potential to vastly improve global mobility competencies. Millennials, a generation born in the era of fast-paced globalization and continuously changing technology, are predicted to make up 75% of the world’s workforce by 2025 and expect to effectively use the same amount and type of technology at their workplace as they do at home in order to retain the fluidity and flexibility of their skills and knowledge. Gen Z, their younger siblings, is growing up fast.
Learningonlinexyz, Inc. has been nominated once again for the Forum for Expatriate Management’s (FEM) Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards (EMMA) 2017, a prestigious forum recognizing the contribution that businesses have made to develop and improve the global mobility of employees and their families. Nominated in 2016 for the category, ‘Most Innovative Use of Technology in Global Mobility- Bespoke’, this year it is shortlisted for Best Family Support Program.
Its concierged content ecosystem uses edTech solutions to leverage cool learning content for 160+ languages, including ASL, appealing to Gen X multi-platforms users as well as Gen Y primary mobile users and their younger siblings, Gen Z. With online platforms for both web and app, learners can quickly become globally mobile using the same tools the whole family loves in daily life: social learning and sharing, videos and visual micros, quizzes, downloadable apps etc.
Sue Brett, CEO of Learningonlinexyz, Inc. commented, “We are delighted to be nominated for the 2nd year running for the FEM EMMAs, and it’s very cool that it’s for ‘Best Family Support Program’, a key focus for us this year. We know how important it is to engage young learners and make them part of the relocation process, and cultural tools that the whole family can get excited about makes the transition to new countries that little bit easier. Plus overseas families often use Skype to keep in touch with relatives back home, which means our collaboration with Skype to develop a conversational language learning bot is spot on as yet another tool for Gen Y and Gen Z i.e. the core market for global mobility.”
The Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards will take place on the 4th of May, 2017, at the Americas Global Mobility Summit in Denver.
