Innovation Driven by Education

Ink Labs, the company behind uTeach, was founded to address the gap between the promise and reality of technology. True engagement and productivity gains demand simple, elegant technology, and experts who can recommend, deliver, deploy and train in its use. It should enhance the experience, not run it.

You have an obligation to so many stakeholders: the students and teachers who use the technology, and the taxpayers who fund them. We’re committed to helping you select the right technology, and ensure it’s adopted in a way that improves engagement and learning.
