    Leveraging Off

    What is the exact meaning of the following sentence? It is a title from a text about using mobile devices and Internet in education. The text followed by mentioning of advantages of using mobile devices and internet in education, but the idiom "leveraging off" is unclear. I think it means "enjoy the benefits" but I am not sure.
    Leveraging Off the Advantages of Net Tablets

    Thanks very much

    It's jargon. It means nothing to me.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: Leveraging Off

    Another forum member asked some questions about the same text a couple of weeks ago. My advice is to find a different text as the one you're reading is badly written.
