Edovo was founded by Brian Hill in 2013. During his first year at Northwestern University Law School, he worked on a Social Impact Bond initiative for the largest single-site jail in Chicago. Brian dreamed of a flexible, customisable experience where users could choose what they learn and explore entertainment, job training and reentry resources. Hill and a small team worked with Impact Engine, an incubator for mission-driven businesses. In 2014, the first version of Edovo was born. By fall of 2014, Edovo launched 40 tablets in its first facility, Philadelphia Prison System Alternative and Special Detention.
Edovo provides a secure, online learning platform in jails and prisons. Edovo’s educational suite hosts tens of thousands of hours of academic, vocational and life skills content. Students have unlimited access to educational materials while incarcerated, with the option to continue the programme upon release. Edovo utilises secure tablet technology specifically designed and ruggedised for the correctional environment. The platform operates on a secure server and in a private cloud environment, so there is absolutely no access to the external internet.
