Company Summary

Esplori is a lifelong learning ecosystem that leverages digital technologies — online video and subtitles, text-to-speech and voice-overs, crowd-intelligence, mentorship, reputation systems and gamification — and the translation and caption efficiency built by our partner Dotsub to both make available “Learn Anything, Anywhere”, and to make video discoverable, contextual, and componentized as is required for learning ecosystems.
