Lucid Software today announced that its popular diagramming application Lucidchart is now available as part of Google’s Education App Pack. The newly released Education App Pack is a group of popular web apps in the Chrome Web Store spanning different subjects and grade levels that are directly available from the Chromebook management console.
"At Lucidchart, we are passionate about supporting education and have donated hundreds of thousands of licenses to schools over the last two years,” says Karl Sun, company CEO. “We are excited to be included in the Education App Pack because it will make it even easier for teachers and students to use Lucidchart.”
Lucidchart is a web-based diagramming application used by schools worldwide to create diagrams such as flowcharts, mind maps, Venn diagrams and more. Its intuitive interface allows students of all ages to begin diagramming with little or no training. Through real-time collaboration, teachers and students can work together in groups and see each other’s changes instantly.
“As a teacher, I could not be more pleased with the functionality of Lucidchart as a tool for learning. Lucidchart organizes ideas, connects concepts and allows learning to be visual,” says Diana Laufenberg, a Social Studies teacher at Science Leadership Academy. “Lucidchart is one of the best choices for the classroom because of its simple, web-based and collaborative functions.”
When initially accessing Lucidchart through the management console, Chromebook administrators submit a request for the number of expected Lucidchart users. Students and teachers who then install Lucidchart from the Chrome Web Store are provided an educational license. This license provides all the premium features of Lucidchart at no cost.
Users can install Lucidchart’s educational app through its Chrome Web Store listing.
