MADISON, Wis. (June 26, 2012) – StudyBlue is part of App Packs made available for Google Chromebooks for Education. Google App Packs contain popular educational apps found in the Chrome Web Store. Each pack includes a variety of educational tools made directly available through the Chromebook Management Console.
Google App Packs are associated with a grade level to best suit the needs of each Apps for Education administrator, and StudyBlue is featured in the High School App Pack. Administrators can publish the apps directly to each student’s Chromebook in their network with one click. This is all about ease and efficiency, enabling schools to get the best study tools in their students’ hands faster than ever before.
Along with the free integration, administrators of the Apps for Education accounts will also be able to participate in special bulk purchasing rates for StudyBlue+. The premium version of StudyBlue offers additional features for an enhanced study experience, such as advanced study filters, unlimited study reminders, ability to hide cards, and removal of advertisements.
“We’re very excited to be included in Google’s new App Packs for Education,” said Becky Splitt, CEO of StudyBlue. “With our new integration, both students and teachers will be logged into StudyBlue if they’re logged into their Chromebooks. We believe that the more convenient we make it for students to study, the more quickly and efficiently they will master the materials they need to know.”
