Odeum is a tool for teachers to promote Critical Thinking, Active Participation, and increase Engagement through role-playing historic and literary events in 3D Virtual Worlds. Odeum Learning’s platform allows teachers to find, customize, and even create their own educational roleplaying experiences for the lessons they are teaching. Odeum is bringing the Field Trip to the Classroom.

Update - Year 1: 

Since Ian Natzmer presented his immersive learning EdTech startup last April, Odeum has continued gaining traction in multiple areas.  Odeum has been piloted at Wyandotte Public Schools, receiving very positive feedback.  Based on this, Odeum continues to work closely with teachers to create additional content on the Odeum platform.  Odeum has also worked with the University of Michigan's Department of Education and Information Technology to improve the user experience.  Odeum has also added a team member to lead sales and marketing.  All of these activities are consistent with feedback from investors to allow Odeum to go back to investors later this year.
