Splashtop Launches Classroom Assist Optimized for Microsoft Windows 10
Empower Teachers to Instantly Annotate and Share Windows 10 Tablet Screens to Many Students’ Devices, Anytime Anywhere
San Jose, CA — June 20, 2016 — Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing and collaboration, announces Splashtop Classroom Assist for Microsoft Universal Windows Platform (UWP). Splashtop Classroom Assist turns any Windows 10 tablets or convertible notebooks into mobile interactive whiteboards. Teachers can freely move around the room with full control of the content without being tied to the front of the classroom as in the case of traditional interactive whiteboards. Furthermore, teachers can instantly share the Windows 10 device screen to all student devices wirelessly. Windows 10 features supported include Cortana, empowering teachers to use voice commands to control the session and various annotation features.
“The Windows 10 tablet is becoming a powerful education tool, providing stylus support as well as Cortana voice control,” said Mark Lee, CEO and co-founder of Splashtop. “With 1:1 initiatives at many school districts, Splashtop Classroom Assist optimized for Windows 10 enhances the overall learning experience.”
“We’re excited to support student learning with Splashtop’s commitment to build on the Windows 10 UWP platform,” said Craig Dewar, Senior Director of Windows Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “Splashtop supports our focus to have a positive impact on student learning, and our education vision of anytime, anywhere learning for all.”
