Smartly Seems to be real smart with their vision and fundamentals. The concept seems promising as there is not much that is happening around this industry type and we are pretty sure that they would be doing a lot to make it a success.
We found there first ever printed New Letter which they floated last year in August 2010.
“We all associate online learning systems with ugly, slow and generally difficult to use software. The problem is, no one has made the “Facebook solution” to online learning, but it’s about time that changed.Smartly is an agenda for students; a grading tool for teachers; a communication tool for everyone. Assignments, announcements, grades, lessons quickly at your finger tips.
A group of three students from around the world believe they have a solution and are working to bring this to teachers and students. Software can’t be built by people who aren’t going to use it; that’s why mega-corps run by old men won’t bring the people what they need.
In the coming few months, we will be reinventing everything you know about learning software, focusing on usability and design. After all, every minute wasted on broken software is a minute lost getting work done. Welcome to tomorrow’s educational web.”
