Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
LearningMate, the world’s leading e-learning & educational technology solutions provider, announced continued development plans for GoClass, its cloud-based teaching and learning platform for mobile devices, this morning at the 2013 International Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.
GoClass is part of ng Connect Program demonstrations in the in the Alcatel-Lucent Booth #31412.
The ng Connect Program, founded by Alcatel-Lucent (EURONEXT and NYSE: ALU), is a multi-industry ecosystem dedicated to the creation of the new generation connected user experience. ng Connect is comprised of more than 190 Contributing and Associate member companies including leading network, consumer electronics, application and content providers.
Introduced to the market last January, GoClass, a recipient of the 2012 IMS Platinum Innovation Award, enables teachers to deliver engaging, interactive and measurable learning experiences by utilizing a cloud-based application to deploy teacher-curated lesson plans directly to student devices creating the opportunity to measure both student and course performance in real-time.
Through active collaboration with pilot program partners in K-12 schools and higher education institutions, GoClass has gained insight into the needs of today’s teachers and the tools they require to support outlined curriculum objectives. This collaborative approach to product development has resulted in core functionality designed to equip students, teachers and administrators with a unique collection of easy-to-use tools that promote their current and future success.
“As consumer technology takes on a larger role in society, GoClass is at the frontier of driving change in today’s classroom,” said Samudra Sen, Global CEO, LearningMate Solutions Pvt. Ltd. “Effective learning is shaped not only by connecting teachers and administrators with the tools they need to deliver course content and assess learning outcomes but more importantly by connecting students to the functionality they need to interact in more meaningful ways with course material, instructors and classmates. This is the core driver of our development efforts.”
As a result, GoClass has successfully implemented core functionality directly tied to teacher and student needs such as flexible layouts, note-taking tools and features designed to improve testing accountability such as the randomization of answers in test banks. In addition, the suite of administrative tools continues to grow into a robust offering with the introduction of data analytics that provide insights into attendance, student achievement, course design and cognitive gaps at the student and class levels.
GoClass is available on Apple® iOS devices with student application support for the Android platform and preliminary support for WebKit browsers.
GoClass is featured at CES 2013 in a joint demonstration with Alcatel-Lucent under the auspices of the ng Connect program. Visitors to CES 2013 can view the demonstration at the Alcatel-Lucent booth #31412. In addition, GoClass will participate as a featured panelist during the HigherEdTECH Summit on Thursday, January 10.
