Odilo believes the ‘Netflixisation’ of academia is happening now

How the ‘Netflixisation’ of academia will shape the future of learning and why unlimited learning ecosystems are the most viable environment for academic progress

ODILO is the first unlimited digital content platform that provides a fully personalised collaborative learning experience for users of all ages and circumstances – in school, college, university or in the workplace.

It offers users intelligent access to the world’s best content providers in any digital format, along with unlimited learning experiences tailored to the specific requirements of each organisation, and the preferences of each user.

COVID-19 has accelerated demand for ODILO’s platform

In early 2020, global learning was catapulted into an online-only environment and one of the biggest immediate concerns was access. How can we create equality and maintain high standards in education by making digital content readily accessible and affordable to all? ODILO’s strategy is to keep functionality relevant to the user and tailor to individual needs rather than to the collective. With ODILO, every student gets the digital personal tutorial experience.

ODILO’s solution allows schools, universities, governments and companies to create their own unlimited educational ecosystems. The ODILO platform offers intelligent access to the world’s best digital content providers in 43 languages, along with unlimited learning and collaborative learning experiences in an integrated way (independent, guided, collaborative, certified, in the classroom) that are tailored to the specific requirements of each organisation and preferences of each user.

ODILO builds unlimited learning ecosystems

We put the user at the core of what we do, and don’t build a ‘one size fits all’ approach. It’s imperative that institutions adopt intelligent content platforms to create customised, unlimited learning experiences that adapt to the user. It’s not enough to purely host content online. By utilising data-driven, AI powered solutions, the experience can be personalised, offering unlimited learning possibilities. This is where the ‘Netflixisation’ of academia philosophy comes into play – it’s what ODILO calls an unlimited learning ecosystem.

We work with nine ministries of education and thousands of libraries, business schools, universities, schools, and companies in more than 27 countries, all of which have been transformed by creating their own unlimited learning ecosystems.

Customised ‘Netflix’ learning experiences

The key is to utilise integrated technology to create unlimited learning ecosystems and provide intelligent ‘Netflix’ style experiences that are tailored to the learner. This can be achieved by customising the design and management of certified learning paths, learning clubs, reading plans, onboarding plans and communities. For example, students can exchange their opinions online using learning clubs and collaborative virtual spaces. These make it possible to stimulate the mind with exercises and questions about the title being studied, and exchange opinions and experiences with classmates, the teacher and even special experts such as the author of a book, audiobook or title in any format.

The ‘Netflix’ experience as a service element provides personalised content suggestions, learning campaigns, contests and notifications. The best thing about these learning platforms is that they are personalised so each student has a different homepage with recommended titles and learning paths designed for their learning needs.


We must not forget the importance for all platforms to be inclusive, especially for learners with special educational needs. Those who have learning difficulties or reduced visual abilities should have a learning experience suited to their needs. For example, each electronic textbook can be listened to and offer technology developed especially for easier reading for people with dyslexia or difficulties for reading and learning. These technologies can be used at any time, from anywhere and on all devices, both online and offline.

ODILO also provides the perfect digital companion to an establishment’s physical library, maintaining those important links to the familiar environment and providing the benefits.

Moving forward into the new world

What this pandemic has taught us is to quickly react. Now fully submerged in an online world, people have had the opportunity to trial many digital platforms and see the tremendous benefits they have to offer.

If we democratise quality educational content and provide personalised platforms for different kinds of institutions like governments, libraries, schools, universities and corporates, the learning journey will become unique with a frictionless user experience. The platform can be tailored by the organisation for their specific requirements. And the AI capabilities mean that the platform is learning too, always aggregating data, to suggest the best content for the user. This will revolutionise learning behaviours.

Equality in education is paramount. And, as a blended learning environment looks imminent online, intelligent platforms tailored to the individual will continue to prevail due to the learner’s thirst for Netflix style experiences.
