Raptivity eLearning Software to Let Instructional Designers and Corporate Trainers Create and Share Interactive Course Content on the New iPad
Harbinger Knowledge Products announced today that teachers and corporate trainers will now be able to use its eLearning software Raptivity on the iPad to present interactive content to students. Raptivity now offers the world’s largest library of eLearning interactions for the iPad as well as other cutting-edge mobile computing products.
Harbinger has been gearing up for the worldwide rollout of the new iPad, which the company said is likely to create more demand from course creators for Raptivity. The software was one of the first interactive eLearning platforms to be developed for mobile computing devices using HTML5 technology, such as the new iPad.
With its award-winning Raptivity eLearning software, Harbinger now offers the world’s largest library of educational interactivity templates that will work on not only the new iPad and previous models, but also the iPhone and all other mobile devices using HTML5 technology.
Raptivity's Himalaya pack includes the industry's most extensive library of 170+ eLearning interactions for mobile devices like the iPad that do not support Flash, helping course designers develop exciting interactive content that truly engages students – something that previously was available only through devices that used Flash.
"This is a very positive development for the education industry, one that will let everyone from college professors to elementary school teachers to business trainers easily create fun and compelling content and then share it with students with their iPad or other mobile device," said Vikas Joshi, chairman and managing director of the Harbinger Group, the parent company of Harbinger Knowledge Products.
Seema Chaudhary, president of Harbinger Knowledge Products, said instructors and students alike are increasingly using smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices in traditional classrooms and in “virtual classrooms” for distant learning courses.
"The iPad in particular is a terrific device for teachers, one that really lends itself to both presenting and viewing interactive course material," she said. "We're proud that Harbinger's Raptivity can be part of this revolution in education. Raptivity promises to make it easy for instructors to quickly and affordable create the kind of interactive content that will truly energize today's students."
With Raptivity, course designers can choose from a wide variety of easily customizable interactive models, including quizzes, game shows, videos, and 3D objects. Instructors can then add it conveniently to their eLearning content. Studies have shown that with interactive content, learning experiences become memorable and dropout levels go down.
Raptivity has won numerous awards in various categories, including the 2011 Best Educational Software Award in the Online Technology Tool category and three 2011 LearnX E-learning & Training Awards from Training Australia Magazine.
