GTxcel (www.GTxcel.com), a leader in digital publishing solutions, introduces ClassApp, a new mobile app solution for schools and universities. With ClassApp teachers can publish content to mobile devices for students, faculty, and peers.
ClassApp is a branded content app that gives students immediate access to assignments, class presentations, syllabi, and learning materials from smartphones and tablets. Teachers can work with GTxcel to create a ClassApp for their class and to submit content that is to appear in the app. The app also incorporates timely RSS feeds for news or blogs, as well as video, podcasts, slideshows, quick polls, and Google Maps. The app is available for download from Apple iTunes, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore.
Mobile devices play a big role in students’ academic lives. Over half of students own three or more internet-connected devices.1 Additionally, Pearson found that nine out of ten students believe that mobile devices will change the way students learn in the future and make learning more fun.2
Says Peter Stilson, CEO of GTxcel, “We’re excited to bring mobile technology into the classroom. Teachers and instructors can create a mobile app that houses learning materials and publications for their students and members. Content “responds” to the user’s device for a superior reading experience on all screens. With ClassApp students can bookmark or share pages through email and social networks.”
This fall Western New England University in Springfield, Massachusetts will launch ClassApp for a Probability & Statistics class. “Every week I will add assignments, presentations, and case studies to the app. All class material will be optimized for reading on smartphones,” says Marilyn Pelosi, Assistant Dean of the School of Business.
“GTxcel works with many prominent universities to digitize their publications, which can be viewed at GTxcel.com/Samples/. ClassApp is being marketed to teachers as a new way to connect with students and to make academic content mobile for learning inside and outside of the classroom,” says Peter Stilson.
