Translation to Impact
The true value of new knowledge created through University research lies in its benefit to society, whether through education, service, or impact on quality of life. Pinying's translation from discovery to teaching methodology to commercialized product is already beginning to fulfill this purpose both locally and across the globe.
Through the efforts of OU and Dr. Stalling, Pinying has been utilized as a teaching tool on a Chinese social media platform, and received interest from one of China's largest curriculum-creating and academic publishing companies for possible partnership or acquistion. Pinying has been launched in both domestic and international App Store offerings, and has led to discussions with corporations interested in the platform as a training tool for new employees. Finally, thanks to continued participation from the inventor and high levels of interest from funding sources, Pinying has positioned itself as a possible University start-up.
