(Thursday, 1st March, 2012. Oxford, UK.) Curatr, the platform to create rich, active, and social eLearning, has released version 2.0 of its award-winning software. Combining a unique interface with game-like mechanics and a collaborative learning environment, Curatr leads the way in terms of design and innovation in the eLearning marketplace.
Curatr encourages designers and developers of eLearning to take a different approach to the normal “click next to continue” world of eLearning.
“We went back to the drawing board, to imagine eLearning in a world which is already vastly rich in content,” said Ben Betts from Curatr. “This approach means you don’t have to invest huge amounts of time and money in the development of new content; you can re-use content from the Web or from within your organization to create an experience in which the learner becomes the curator of their own knowledge."
The updated system includes more than 100 changes from the version that helped win “Best Academic Course” at the Demofest event held at DevLearn 2011 in Las Vegas. “We’ve come a long way since version 1.0, which was just a year ago,” continued Betts. “This latest version of Curatr represents a giant leap forward in everything we do. Following on from the feedback we’ve received, we have made a huge range of modifications to build on the core flow of the learner’s experience, and the results of our testing programs have been very, very encouraging.”
Visitors to the www.curatr.co.uk website can find out more about the platform and sign up to play the free demo. The brand new Curatr iPad app is also part of the demo and users can test out the demo experiences for free – “perfect timing for those of us lucky enough to become owners of the iPad 3,” commented Betts.
Curatr allows you to create rich, active and social eLearning experiences.
Using learning content sourced everywhere, Curatr encourages learners to reflect, curate and build their understanding as they collaborate with their peers in a Social Learning environment.
Developed in a research-led approach, Curatr is available free of charge to teachers and from just £149 per month for organizations. To learn more, visit our website and play our free demo.
