It’s not just a technical project, it’s a revolutionary teaching and study solution.
Information Technology has fundamentally transformed the ways we can improve and enhance our lives, especially when it comes to education. This technology has already changed virtually all aspects of the educational environment, but only recently has the incorporation of mobile applications become of interest to educators and technology providers.
HOYU identiﬁed the need in the marketplace for an easy-to-use tool that could facilitate real-time interaction between teachers and students, creating educational opportunities that would otherwise be impossible.
As a result, with the invaluable input of multiple potential end users, Savvycom engineers have helped create PDF Editor, an interactive e-book solution with smart integration that functions as both a website and a mobile application. Creating an e-book with smoothly integrated and interactive elements like Adobe Indesign is complicated, and theoretically requires professional skills.
To create a technology through which any user, regardless of skill level, could drag and drop different types of media into an e-book that could then be presented as a ﬁnished project in PDF format, we began a new technology project now known as HOYU PDF Editor.
Being an e-book, this tool requires a large amount of storage space. The editor employs cloud-based storage and computing, establishing a virtual “store” containing an unlimited number of e-books & other learning materials.
This also allows the author to create and update PDF books right on the web, meanwhile enabling teachers to interact with students through the mobile app to provide coaching and feedback.
“Savvycom technical strength is wonderful.
Let’s continue to better work with each other.”

Improve teaching and learning processes
Improve Teaching & Learning Process
Teachers and students can make notes, create and send comments, and handwrite notes directly on the e-books. This process forms a valuable conduit between students and teachers and allows the efﬁcient exchange of ideas and joint responsibility for the learning process.
Instead of printing and selling traditional, publishers with the Authorising tool can produce completed books that contain images, video and audio ﬁles. This adds dynamic and interactive properties that traditional printed materials just can’t compete with.
A new teaching style
Teachers can give assignments to individual students and set deadlines for each one. All comments and marks can be written directly to the PDF ﬁles. Students can also receive their teachers’ marks and comments from the mobile app and can send their questions and comments back to their teacher.
Providing qualiﬁed materials
To protect the materials and users, we prioritise the copyright protection issue with AES algorithms to encrypt and secure book contents. Authorised users are then able to open, edit and update new versions of an e-book.
