New app delivers the intelligent cloud, powered by Microsoft Cortana, to classrooms around the world
Today RedCritter Corp. announced the availability of RedCritter Classroom for Windows 10, complete with natural voice recognition and speech powered by Microsoft Cortana. RedCritter Classroom can be used by a single teacher or rolled out at a school or district level.
RedCritter Classroom is the first and only app of it’s kind. It is a teaching tool that augments teachers’ existing curriculums by adding support for issuing and tracking digital badges, certificates, skill points and even virtual currency. With RedCritter teachers can track student effort and learning and monitor their progress over time.
Deep Cortana integration brings the power of the intelligent cloud to classrooms around the world. The service learns each teacher’s students, skills tracked, student traits and more. Over time RedCritter’s Cortana implementation will be able to make incredibly powerful predictive assessments in order to help teachers ensure their students are engaged.
"RedCritter delivers Cortana as a helpful teacher’s assistant, always available simply by asking a question or giving a command.", said Mike Beaty, CEO of RedCritter. “Cortana can even announce student achievements to the entire class as they occur. This type of natural voice interaction dramatically enhances student engagement.”
