LanSchool Announces New LanSchool EdApp Student SDK and Certification for iPads, iPods and iPhones
OREM, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LanSchool Technologies LLC, a leading provider of classroom management software, announced a new SDK and certification logo for iPad/iPod/iPhone app developers called EdApp Certified. The LanSchool EdApp Student SDK and Certification allows app developers to make their applications manageable for the education market.
“Without the ability to run LanSchool in a background thread, traditional classroom management functions such as thumbnail monitoring didn’t look like they could be a possibility,” said Ben Cahoon, vice president of LanSchool. “However, with this free SDK, educational app developers can embed classroom management features into their apps and make the devices manageable.”
With EdApp Certified educational apps, any teacher running the LanSchool Lite console (free to K-20 educational organizations) can perform the following features:
Discover and monitor student devices
View the current EdApp and last visited URL
Monitor student progress through an app or see a final score
See student’s requests for help
Monitor battery status of the device
With the paid version of LanSchool v7.4, teachers can perform the following additional features:
Assess student understanding with a built-in classroom response system
Send students messages
LanSchool will publish a list of EdApp Certified apps on their website and allow app developers to use the EdApp certified logo in the marketing materials.
Pricing and Availability
The SDK is available for free to any app developer that is creating apps for the education segment. For additional information please contact LanSchool at 1-877-370-5546.
