“Our ongoing vision at Lyryx is to continue advancing learning through technology”
Claude Laflamme, Lyryx founder and president.
Originally a research project at the University of Calgary, Lyryx aimed to improve student outcomes by providing online assessments beyond multiple choice questions. Lyryx has since evolved to also offer a variety of Open Educational Resources, including a library of open textbooks and instructor supplements. The aim has always been that of making high-quality course materials accessible and affordable to students while empowering instructors to focus on teaching as opposed to grading assignments.
Students can complete their online homework at no charge when they do so from assigned computer labs on campus.
Lyryx believes in the importance of education. Our mission is to advance learning through affordable technology and the dissemination of educational resources that are both accessible and affordable. At the same time, we want to ensure long term sustainability and stability to our adopters. To this end we provide a low-cost educational software, that can also be accessed for free in campus computer labs, in addition to a library of open (free) textbooks.
Lyryx maintains a number of open textbooks for Business, Economics, Mathematics and Statistics. Our textbooks are freely available to download, but also have print option available.
“We estimate that, for every coordinated class of 200 students, we save them a combined amount of about $15,000.“
