Kno, Inc. Launches a Personal Study Dashboard, Kno Me
Jan 9 13
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. 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 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.
