Our goal

Atlas Primer was founded on the vision of creating a learning environment that combined the accessibility and convenience of audiobooks and podcasts, with the interactivity and flexibility offered by Voice Assistants and Smart Devices.


The primary goal of Atlas Primer is to increase the availability of quality education through the use of technology, by increasing access, usability and automation. Our approach allows the creation of interactive learning environments with even the simplest of devices and in the most remote locations.
