Respondus offers interactive learning activities for mobile devices.
REDMOND, Wash., April 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Respondus, Inc. (respondus.com) announces the availability of two mobile solutions for its StudyMate Class application, enabling students to access interactive study materials from their online courses. Collectively, the mobile offerings for StudyMate Class support the iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Palm Pre, iPod touch, and iPad devices.
The first solution, “StudyMate LMS Edition,” is a native iPhone application that allows users to access their online courses (Blackboard, Moodle or ANGEL) and sync with their StudyMate projects. The app includes 10 of the same learning activities available in StudyMate Class, such as Flash Cards, Quiz and Challenge. The data for projects is synced each time the app is started, enabling users to work offline. StudyMate LMS Edition (link to iTunes store) for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is available for free from Apple’s App Store.
The second solution is an enhancement to the StudyMate Class platform itself. Using the browser on a mobile device, students login to their learning management system and select a StudyMate Class project. StudyMate Class detects which mobile device and browser is being used and serves up custom pages. This browser-based solution is available for all leading mobile devices, including the iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Palm Pre, iPod touch, and iPad.
“This is the year for mobile learning,” says David Smetters, President of Respondus, Inc. “Students want applications that allow them to learn on-the-go. Most importantly, these apps must be engaging, easy to use, and well-conceived for the mobile environment. Our mobile solutions for StudyMate Class achieve all of that, and more.”
StudyMate Class helps students “master the basics” of course material through learning activities, self-assessments and games. Students choose activities that appeal to their learning style, engaging them with course content in a powerful, individualized way. Instructors can use StudyMate Class projects with any subject matter, and even allow students to create and edit their own material.
StudyMate Class is available for institutions running Blackboard (Learn, Enterprise, Vista/CE), Moodle or ANGEL. Educational institutions can request a free 3-month pilot license. More information: www.respondus.com.
