EnableM Launches Magic Pencil, An Education Solution For Tablets

EnableM, a mobile learning VAS company, has launched Magic Pencil, a tablet-based education solution for higher education and distance education institutions.

Magic Pencil is a essentially a platform which allows educators to create courses, aggregate multimedia resources from a global repository or upload their own learning content and publish these courses to allow students access them over multiple form factors including tablets, smartphones and computers.

Content: EnableM said that the platform currently caters to management students and it has partnered with several reputed publishing houses to create a repository of premium management resources such as video lectures, case studies, industry reports, presentations, multimedia illustrations and management learning programs from global universities. Going further, the company also intends to expand this platform to other higher education and distance learning courses.

What’s worth noting though is that the app seems to offer access to reputed blogs in specific subjects like Marketing, Finance, Human resource among others. Further, it also seems to offers tools like finance assistant, calculator, document scanner & dictionary and an in-house app store which offers collaboration oriented apps like Fring, Wikipedia, SyncSpace, Whiteboard among others.

Tie-ups: EnableM claims to have deployed this platform in five Management colleges across Maharashtra and Gujarat as a pilot and is in talks with several other Higher Education and Distance Learning Institutions to deploy this platform. Speaking to Medianama, Riddhi Mahimkar, Product Manager, EnableM told that they also provide Android tablets worth Rs 6,000 to Rs 10,000 to institutions upon request. However, majority of the institutions just opt for the platform solution.

Availability: EnableM said that the app is currently limited to students participating in its pilot program, but it will soon release it across various app stores. It also plans to release an iOS based solution in coming months.
