Media-X Systems is excited to announce that their new product offering for Apple iPad, eStudent, is now available in the iTunes App Store as a free download. eStudent opens the door to interactive group collaboration within the classroom for problem solving and higher order thinking activities. It also offers flexible, fast content creation for lessons with the ability to push them out and interact with students in real-time. Key features of the program include: group or private chats monitored by the instructor, group collaboration, media distribution, real-time and offline lessons and quizzes, self-reporting and reflection, learning journals, homework notes, calendars, reminders and more.
“We have been showcasing eStudent all year at trade shows, presentations and meetings and are so excited with the feedback and reaction from our clients and the people that we have met” said Bonnie Homewood, Manager of Client Services for Media-X. “Many educators are excited about the effective and engaging nature of new technology, and now eStudent brings them a simple, effective tool for engaging their students using iPad devices either on a one-to-one basis or in an iPad lab environment.”
“I’m impressed by how easy it is to put my own content in the program and differentiate my lessons and resources sent to students using groups” said a teacher in a recent presentation. “I also love the chat component, which will allow my students to interact with me and each other in a format that they currently use, yet still allow me to monitor their usage to ensure a safe and productive classroom.”
Media-X will be demonstrating eStudent and seeking feedback in several locations including: Long Island BOCES, Oct 18 and ECOO in Richmond Hill October 20-22, 2011. eStudent is compatible with iPad devices running iOS 3.2 or later.
