Through this partnership, ODILO has built an incredible platform called CBE Biblio to support learning in all subjects, but also learning in multiple languages, including French, Spanish, German, Arabic and many more. ODILO creates Unlimited Learning Ecosystems for school systems looking to help their students, teachers and families reach their full potential.

The goal is to create equality in education by delivering the highest quality digital content in a way that is seamless, accessible, and affordable to all. Access to our CBE Biblio platform is now available to the first 2500 families who sign up using the code calgary2022.
