LMS integrates standards, adds app

Follett Software Company this week introduced new and updated features available in version 3.5 of Cognite, its learning management system.

All of the U.S. states and Canadian provinces, plus the Common Core and ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) standards, are now integrated into Cognite.

The new Android app for Cognite allows for viewing of assignments and messages, and gives users the ability to check on their assignments and messages. Another 3.5 version highlight is the ability to integrate with Turnitin, which is used by educators worldwide to enable web-based peer review, facilitate meaningful feedback, improve writing skills, promote critical thinking, streamline grading and discourage plagiarism.
