Ohmni Telepresence Robot for Distance Learning
OhmniLabs is pleased to be named an Edtech Digest Award Finalist. Ohmni Robot for Distance Learning is featured among edtech’s best and brightest in two categories — emerging technology solution and robotics solution.
As the largest recognition program in all of education technology, The EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest recognizes people in and around education for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere.
Finalists and winners were announced to a worldwide audience of educators, technologists, students, parents, and policymakers interested in building a better future for learners and leaders in the education and workforce sectors.
“The worldwide pandemic put education and training to the test, but remote learning and working—in many unexpected ways—ultimately brought us closer,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program.
The EdTech Awards were established in 2010 to recognize, acknowledge, and celebrate the most exceptional innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in education technology.
Finalists and winners were narrowed from the larger field and judged based on various criteria, including: pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value and potential.
“After a year like no other—to all those innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in K-12, higher ed, and workforce learning staying connected, productive, persistent, and getting us closer despite all challenges: we salute you.”

About Ohmni Robot for Distance Learning
Ohmni Robot is a telepresence robot on wheels that gives users the experience of being present and physically moving through a remote location. Ours is a perfect solution for hybrid and hyflex teaching model and/or students who cannot attend school due to illness or hospitalization.
Administrators around the world choose our emerging technology to help students navigate better outcomes and to help ensure equal access to education. Using Ohmni Robot, students can continue their normal curriculum and stay engaged even when they are physically unable to attend class in person.
While many schools use traditional video conferencing in order to bring students into the classroom, Ohmni Robot is unique due to the mobility and independence users experience. Instead of learning through a fixed screen, students can drive Ohmni in order to meet with peers, get a better view of the chalkboard, take notes, and more. Using our web-based app, users can log in using any device (desktop, laptop, iPad or smartphone) to drive Ohmni Robot through a remote space.
Because Ohmni Robot stands at human height and has a fully tiltable, emotive neck, classmates feel as if their friend has returned to school. Learning and connection are seamless with Ohmni Robo; teachers don’t need to prepare additional lesson plans. Ohmni Robot is affordable compared to hiring outside tutors and compared to other robots because we 3-D print our robots in our Silicon Valley office using our own proprietary printing technology.
