Doceri from SP Controls to Support Windows 8/RT
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. June 20, 2013 -- SP Controls today announced it has been working in close partnership with Microsoft Corp. on development of Doceri for the Windows 8/RT platform. The Doceri software suite combines interactive whiteboard, screencast recording and remote desktop control together in the same platform created specifically for classroom education.
“We looked at the landscape of educational apps vendors and identified Doceri as one of the best in its class of tablet-based whiteboard offerings,” said Nima Mojgan, senior industry solutions manager, for Microsoft Corp. “We are excited to have Doceri available for Windows 8/RT.”
Doceri for Windows 8/RT will be available in the Windows Store before the start of the 2013/14 U.S. school year. Attendees of the ISTE Conference held June 23-26 in San Antonio, Texas can find Doceri by SP Controls in booth 7232.
Doceri was first released in February 2011 for the iPad. To date, more than 200,000 educators and presenters have used Doceri , and the combination of Doceri and a classroom projector is replacing the use of legacy fixed interactive whiteboards in tens of thousands of schools and universities worldwide.
Educators rely on Doceri to create engaging lessons and gain a clearer view of their students’ progress and needs. In a recent survey conducted by SP Controls, 86 percent of classroom teachers reported an increase in student engagement over the 2012/2013 school year since beginning to teach with Doceri. Moreover, 94 percent said they were able to manage their classrooms better because they can move around the room while they teach.
“Working with Microsoft over these past several months has revealed a synergy between our goals for education,” said Paul Brown, CEO of SP Controls and Doceri’s chief architect. “There is a real danger in technology for technology’s sake. We all want to support teachers with technology that is not only best in class, but also makes a real difference in the classroom.”
With integrated PowerPoint controls and the highest quality drawing tools available, Doceri is the professional –grade choice and the only tablet-based solution that combines desktop remote control and interactive whiteboarding with screencast recording for flipped classroom instruction.
