First Collaborize Classroom(TM) Mobile App Released
SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Democrasoft, Inc., (OTC: Pinksheets: DEMO) today announced the worldwide release and immediate availability of its free Collaborize Classroom mobile app in the Apple App Store.* Students can now participate in online discussions in their Collaborize Classrooms using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Students can collaborate online with their classmates on-the-go, anywhere and anytime.
According to Nielsen’s “Generation App” report, adoption of smart phones by young adults increased 50% between the end of 2010 and the end of 2011. Approximately 40% of students 13-18 use smart phones, and that percentage is growing quickly. Following that trend, teachers have reported that students have been accessing their Collaborize Classroom sites via web browsers on their smart phones since the release of Collaborize Classroom early last year. This new development makes it even easier for them to collaborate before, during, and after the bell rings, on the dedicated mobile app – the new feature most requested by teachers in 2011.
According to Democrasoft Chairman & CEO Richard Lang, “It’s very gratifying to provide access to our award-winning online collaboration platform on the world’s most popular mobile devices. Almost 1.4 million individual topic-based lessons have already been delivered to students on the Collaborize Classroom learning platform. This mobile version will increase student access to these lessons by orders of magnitude, especially for students who can’t afford a computer, but who do have a smart phone or other mobile device.”
The mobile app is a powerful extension of the Collaborize Classroom platform, which provides the ability to extend in-class conversations to a private and secure online site and to students’ personal mobile devices. Coupled with the Collaborize Classroom Topic Library, teachers now have a soup-to-nuts solution to find peer-reviewed, topic-based lessons and deploy them to their students with just a few clicks. In addition, Democrasoft announced that, in a few weeks, it will release a version of the mobile app that will be optimized for the larger iPad display.
