Respondus StudyMate Author 2.5 Available Now with HTML5 & Cloud Architecture

StudyMate MobileRespondus has released StudyMate Author 2.5, which contains major enhancements. The latest version incorporates HTML5 and cloud architecture to engage learners in an entirely new way, while still offering support for Flash-based learning activities and SCORM objects.

Here’s an overview of the key enhancements:

  1.  Device-specific support was added for students using smartphones and tablets
  2. Activities can be made available outside an LMS (via StudyMate.com, a cloud server)
  3.  Instructors can use a simple URL to direct students to activities (enabling instructors to link to activities from pretty much anywhere)

Below is a 2-minute video that highlights the new features. After you watch the video, be sure to select the second link below to see sample activities created with StudyMate Author 2.5. In fact, we’d encourage you to try these activities on a computer, smartphone, and tablet so you can experience the customized environments for each device.
