WizIQ, a web-based education platform, announced its WizIQ Virtual Classroom App for the iPad today. The app is specially designed for students, giving them anytime, anywhere access to the WizIQ Virtual Classroom.
The WizIQ Virtual Classroom iPad App offers many of the features available in the desktop version. This is an important new instructional tool for many of the 2 million students and nearly 175,000 teachers, trainers, and teaching organizations currently registered on WizIQ.
The app makes online classes on WizIQ more accessible for the growing number of students who choose to carry an iPad everywhere instead of lugging a full-sized laptop with them. Students can:
- Attend online classes from home, a cafe, or wherever they happen to be.
- Connect with video and audio on their iPads.
- View presentations, reports, documents, PDFs, Excel spreadsheets, and multimedia files — whatever the teacher shares with the class.
- See the whiteboard with all its drawing tools and write on it when the teacher allows.
- Text chat publicly with all participants
- Virtually raise their hands in the class for questions.
- Give instant feedback through polls as shared by the instructor.
The app is free for WizIQ users, enabling access to online classes from the most popular tablet in the world. WizIQ is also developing an Android app and will announce a beta program on that platform soon.
