RM Results launches edtech innovation lab RM Studio
Digital assessment solutions provider RM Results has announced the launch of its new in-house edtech innovation lab RM Studio.
This new drive towards innovation comes as part of the company’s ongoing aim to modernise the education sector with new products, including the latest developments in machine-based learning and AI technologies.
The digital assessment solutions company works with exam boards, government departments and education institutions across the globe.
Education and technology now ‘inextricably linked’
The new project has been led by RM Results’ new Head of Innovation, Roberto Hortal. He has previously worked to implement technological innovation programmes in companies including Nokia, easyJet and EDF Energy.
In response to this latest introduction, Hortal said:
“The landscape of education looks nothing like it did twenty years ago. Education and technology are now inextricably linked, and increasingly we are seeing people engaging with education throughout their lives, rather than just their school and university years.
“As the world of education diversifies, we want to be providing cutting edge solutions for markets as they emerge and grow.
“We firmly believe that, by focusing our innovative efforts through a structured, supportive pipeline, RM Studio is precisely what will allow us to achieve this.”
New opportunities in edtech attractive to RM Results and RM Studio
Richard Little, Product Development Director at RM Results, praised Roberto’s efforts, and commented:
“The addition of a Head of Innovation to our team, and subsequent launch of RM Studio, has allowed us to push forward with a new wave of initiatives, and is perfectly timed as we prepare to launch new products.
“At RM Results, everyone is encouraged to innovate; it is a celebrated part of our culture. Roberto’s expertise and experience in successfully bringing innovation to various industries means he is the perfect figurehead to lead our ambitious plans.”
RM Results is a part of RM plc, a group which has been providing technology to the education sector for over 45 years.
