(ENCINO, CA) May 1, 2018 — Insight ADVANCE, creator of groundbreaking tools for teachers’ professional growth, today announced the launch of its first iOS app for users of ADVANCEfeedback®, the award-winning observation, coaching and evaluation software product. ADVANCEfeedback recently won Edtech Digest’s Award for Best Professional Development Learning Tool.
The ADVANCEfeedback mobile app is designed to improve the user experience and save educators time capturing, uploading, and sharing videos so they can concentrate on peer and observer feedback in order to improve teacher practice.
With the new app, users can:
- Log in using their ADVANCEfeedback username and password;
- Track how much storage space they have to add new videos;
- Record new videos;
- Choose existing videos from the device’s gallery;
- Trim the video or merge multiple clips into one video;
- Upload videos directly into their ADVANCEfeedback account; and
- Share videos with peers or observers.
Rebekah Ralph, instructor of educational technology and edTPA coordinator at LaGrange College, said, “I can't imagine teaching, training, and supporting teachers without ADVANCEfeedback. The mobile app makes the teacher's workflow easier and more efficient, which should mean more videos are created for self-reflection, peer collaboration, and coaching."
Nancy Goodman, vice president of product for Insight ADVANCE, added, “We understand that teachers don't have time to worry about cameras, transferring video files, or wondering if their internet infrastructure will support the upload, so we worked with them to design an app that would eliminate any obstacles. Just as ADVANCEfeedback is designed to make it easier for teachers to receive feedback, our app will make it easier for teachers to initiate the process.”
The app is available for iPhone and iPad via Apple’s App Store.
