ANN ARBOR — XanEdu Publishing Inc. announced the release of the XanEdu Android app, a major upgrade to the company’s Folio-X e-learning platform.
XanEdu now offers a device- and platform-neutral solution that leverages e-learning tools for custom-sourced course materials and textbooks. The XanEdu Android app is now available for free download in the Android Market.
The XanEdu Android app, as part of Folio-X, provides educators with a means to aggregate content from a vast array of disparate sources including traditional texts, articles, multimedia and e-learning tools; clear copyright permissions; and then deliver that content to students in ways that improve student engagement, learning and efficiency.
“Our customers look to us to provide creative and reliable solutions to these growing market needs related to custom course materials,” said Alar Elken, CEO of XanEdu Publishing Inc. “These market requirements have been accelerated by the rise of tablet devices that are portable and economical, where the student experience becomes the ultimate baseline for effective delivery.”
The Folio-X suite of solutions supports the wired campus by leveraging existing technology investments at universities such as learning management systems.
“Universities already face many complexities related to campus technology, and the delivery of course materials in innovative formats should not be one of them,” said Nicole Pinard, Senior Vice President, Product Development at XanEdu. “Our goal is to streamline and simplify the process, while offering the widest array of options for students and educators.”
Now Android tablet users working with XanEdu can enjoy the same features and benefits that their iPad classmates have enjoyed for more than a year using the company’s award-winning XanEdu iPad app.
