Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced it has chosen Kno, Inc. as a digital learning platform to deliver its K-12 core curriculum content to schools in the U.S. For the first time, districts can purchase curriculum directly from HMH that is enhanced with Kno's interactive features, social sharing, and learning analytics to promote student engagement through digital adoption. This content is available on all the platforms that teachers and students use today, including iOS, Android, Windows 7 and 8, and Web browsers. With this partnership, Kno serves as the distribution platform from which school districts can easily assign, manage and monitor digital textbooks at an enterprise level, enabling schools to leverage their investments in content and technology like never before.

Kno, Inc. Launches a Personal Study Dashboard, Kno Me

Kno, Inc. launched Kno Me, a personal study dashboard that helps students measure their engagement with each Kno eTextbook they use. Students can check in frequently to see near-real-time stats on their study behavior, interaction levels, time management and personal progress. And with Kno Me social sharing, students can opt in to share their results with peers and even follow the engagement levels of other classmates (perhaps the best student in the class). The study insights available from Kno Me are based on Kno's proprietary analytics platform, including the average time a student spends interacting with the textbook and time within specific chapters, the percentage of pages in the chapter the student annotates, and the percentage of glossary terms the student has mastered. Kno Me is available on all Kno interactive textbooks for iPad and web browsers and will soon be available for Android and Windows 7 and 8.

Kno, Inc. unveils Digital Textbooks App Now Available for Microsoft's(R) Windows 8

Kno, Inc. unveiled its digital textbook application for the new Windows 8(R) operating system. Kno's new education app will be available in the Windows 8 App Store and from numerous manufacturers on devices supporting Windows 8. The new Kno for Windows 8 app takes advantage of the new Windows 8 features such as Charms, which are a set of shortcuts to common tasks that are available anywhere within the system. Charms allow students to multi-task and jump between applications, the Internet and files. The Search Charm allows seamless searching to find what they are looking for more easily wherever that information may be. The Share Charm allows users to quickly share links or files either via Mail, with the People app, or through social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. This is especially helpful in the learning environment by facilitating collaboration between teachers and students as well as student to student sharing. Kno makes learning more engaging and saves students up to 90 minutes a week in study time per book, according to research from Kno. The Kno application offers more than 70 interactive features that are designed to increase learning efficiencies and engagement.
