Exemplars, Inc. and our brand Veditz is focused on improving education attainment for the 70 million global Deaf community, >90% of which are born into hearing households and 90% of which go to mainstream/non-deaf schools. As a result, only 2% of Deaf people having access to education delivered in their chosen sign language. And that leads to tragic outcomes. In the USA alone, Deaf student High School dropout rate is 314% higher, College dropout rate is 71% higher, and under-unemployment rate is 265% higher, than hearing peers. We are going to fix that.
Veditz’ initial offering is the first mobile, on-demand and live interactive video chat free peer-to-peer practice platform for anyone learning to sign regardless if they are a Deaf or hearing person, to practice with others learning to sign; and the first mobile and live interactive video paid tutoring service for the Deaf on K-12 through College subjects (Math, Science, Sign Language...) with instruction provided in sign language (American, Japanese, British...) Veditz is the only WebRTC cross device platform in EdTEch (PC, Mac, Chromebook, iOS and Android) serving the Deaf community.
This innovation was recognized by EDUCAUSE, the association of HigherEd CIOs and CTOs, as one of the top 10 HigherEd EdTech start-ups for 2015. This summer we'll then be adding Veditz courses where Deaf people and hearing people learning a sign language will be able to take complete courses in topics such as math, sciences, English, ASL and more from the world's top instructors who teach the Deaf and/or ASL.
