Stonelizard began as a sportswear line sold in a number of specialty stores. In 2001, however, students from Saint-Stanislas secondary school approached us with the idea of creating a collection of school uniforms because they liked our style.
Taking up the challenge to dress 400 students for school that year, there was no doubt in our minds that, ten years later, 47 schools would trust us with designing their collections and that close to 50,000 students would be donning our clothes to go to school every day. Giving students and their parents a say in our business was paramount to its healthy growth.
Our focus groups, in which parents and students from various schools have been involved for many years, are a source of constant innovation. The discussions always drive us to stay on top of possible fabric combinations, new production techniques and styles that might find their way into a Stonelizard school uniform collection.
After testing multiple operations and logistics options, we have achieved efficiency in our management structure that is passed on to the parents and schools in the form of our competitive prices and the wide range of services we provide. Over the years, our innovations have earned our collections recognition among students for their style and have given parents and school administrators peace of mind..

Our vision is to put technology at the service of academic actors to increase the pedagogical impact of teachers, while optimizing the academic success of students. To give us the means to realize this vision, Redlive’s mission was articulated around the following duality: to make the academic actors: – Autonomous in the creation, diffusion and knowledge’s acquisition – Independent of their study / work environment First of all, we are offering a structure of constant academic support to university and college students in the form of quizzes, rehearsal sessions, Onlive* question and answer’s sessions and pre-recorded video sessions to specifically prepare them for their examinations.
Indeed, depending on the students’s interactions on our platform, our algorithms allow to target their difficulties in order to offer them a personalized learning path, which final goal is to provide a prediction of success. And as we constantly connect our thinking about education in our present era and its various constraints, our technology offers to students the luxury of revising their courses from where they want, when they want, on live but also in replay.
Thus, to study at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home, without wasting time in transport becomes a reality. While maximizing interactivity between caregiver and assisted during these sessions, immutable base of our didactics at RedLive.
In a second step, we have developed a technology of creation and content diffusion for the teaching community, which the purpose is twofold: – Humanize online courses – To be 100% autonomous in its use We started from the premise that the teacher must absolutely focus on what is really important, namely his pedagogy and the student progress’s follow up. No time to waste on any training, or money to lose in post-production for video editing: thanks to our all-in-one solution, what you do is what students see.
Not to mention the features that allow you, among other things, to diagnose the level of your class in real time to adapt your pedagogy to your audience. Thus, through the help provided: – to the students in their exam revisions, – to the teachers in the exercise of their profession, we want to support all the academic actors to perform better in their respective fields, while being in keeping up with our time.
