The learning mode and preparing a study plan for a given day,
The option of creating new courses by users,
Thanks to the SuperMemo application for iPhone users can define and create their own multimedia courses, based on the exercises of their own design. With your own courses you can study the materials you have created yourself, making use of the advantages of the SuperMemo method.
The course editor allows users to define various types of pages: the chapter and presentation pages, and also the question and answer, fill the gaps and multiple choice exercise pages. The editing process in itself is supported with many tools which simplify creating, editing and transferring exercises within the course structure. A user-made course is available only on the iPhone it has been defined for.
The SuperMemo courses support your learning efforts by creating your personal study plan for a given day. It includes the number of repetitions, the material you possibly need to revise and the new material.
The fast learning courses are based on the SuperMemo revising method. When you solve an exercise, the application checks if the answer is correct and, at the same time, shows the auto-grade buttons. Users can choose their own grade and the application calculates the date of the next revision using the abovementioned algorithm of repetitions.
We created DailyLit because we spent hours each day on email but could not find the time to read a book. Now the books come to us by email. Problem solved.
We got the idea for DailyLit after the New York Times serialized a few classic works in special supplements a few summers ago. We wound up reading books that we had always meant to simply by virtue of making them part of our daily routine of reading the newspaper. The only thing we do more consistenly than read the paper is read email. Bingo! We put together a first version and began reading “War of the Worlds” and “Pride and Prejudice“. We showed it to friends, added more books and features at their request, and presto, DailyLit was born.
A private social platform for teachers and students to share ideas, files, events and assignments.
Applications for Education Edmodo could be used for a wide variety of tasks and lessons. Creating anEdmodo group could be a handy way to remind students of assignments and tasks they need to complete. It could also be a forum for open discussion in an online course setting. In a one-to-one computing environment you could post a story starter and have each student add a sentence or paragraph to create a collaboratively written story.
The number one feature request we have received for Edmodo is an iPhone/iPod touch or mobile web app. This is something that has been on our agenda since we launched Edmodo. Tonight we would like to give everyone an early holiday present and announce the beta of the Edmodo Mobile Web Application at http://m.edmodo.com.

Sat in our office one day watching manufacturers demonstrate exciting new technology, we felt like we were in a sci-fi film, wearing 3D glasses.
