“Availability of the Mac version will help us achieve our goal of expanding use of Time To Know in our school," Barbara Rudolph, Principal at Davis Intermediate School in Wylie, Texas
New York (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
Time To Know, a complete online teaching and learning solution, is now available for the Mac.
The updated platform, DTP 6.1, supports Windows Internet Explorer 9, Apple Safari 5.1, Apple Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7 operating systems, and all related models.
The new version also offers Time To Know educators co-teaching interface capabilities, an updated lesson-planning interface, additional benchmark reports, and improved report navigation. DTP 6.1 includes reports that display student answers within lesson context, allowing teachers to correlate student performance data with classroom content.
“The availability of the Time To Know platform for the Macintosh environment has been a key development objective for us, since Macs are widely used in schools, and teachers and students are well-versed in their operation,” said Arik Shahar, Time To Know product manager.
In addition, compatibility with Macintosh computers makes it easier for schools implementing “bring your own device” initiatives to accomplish their technology integration goals.
“About a third of our students using the Time To Know program use their own computers through our BYOD initiative,” said Barbara Rudolph, principal of Davis Intermediate School in Wylie, Texas. “Availability of the Mac version will help us achieve our goal of expanding use of Time To Know in our school.”
DTP 6.1 is now available to all Time To Know U.S. schools, and additional enhancements will be made in the coming weeks. The next platform update will be released mid-2012 in time for the 2012-2013 school year.
