Popular learning platform Collaborize Classroom has just announced a new iPad app that’s further proof that tablets are likely the future of classroom communication. The new app is $0.99 but worth it if you’re currently using their platform. Honestly, I’m kind of surprised that they’re charging for their iPad app since users are already invested in the platform via their web-based tools. Ah well.
Here’s the skinny from the company:
Collaborize Classroom now for the iPad. Collaborize Classroom is a free online collaborative education platform for students and teachers. Collaborize Classroom is designed to complement classroom instruction and engage students in online activities, assignments and discussions that allow for deeper participation inside and outside the classroom. The app allows students to login, vote, comment, and reply to topics for on-the-go learning anywhere, anytime.
The app was designed to give an incredible user experience and we also wanted to keep it extremely low cost at only 99 cents. This is the first product we have ever charged for and we know it is a small investment to get the great results for the students and teachers who will use it.
