My colleagues in Workplace Learning and I kicked off proceedings this morning at Learning Technologies, with a rush of visitors to our stand (122 – come and visit us tomorrow if you get the chance, it’s well worth a visit!). As well as getting a chance to talk face-to-face with workplace learning professionals, and promoting new offerings (such as the Compliance Module for Moodle, and a groundbreaking social video platform for training) we are also hosting our partner The British Safety Council on the stand, as they promote their great range of health and safety e-learning courses.
Tomorrow also sees the first day of BETT 2013, the world’s largest technology in education show. The Webanywhere presence at the show will be our largest to date – here’s just some of the reasons to drop by our stand:
Free Mathsanywhere account for primary schools who visit the Webanywhere stand
5% discount for BETT visitors on the Webanywhere product range. Simply visit the stand and get the promo code(s)
Launch of the new look Learner Journey e-portfolio and safe social network for schools, with enhanced functionality, improved user interface and a range of new themes
Demonstrating the great new Learnanywhere mobile app, which allows the primary specific VLE to be accessed on the go
A joint promotion with Planet Sherston (stand F310) – take a product demo at both stands and claim a sticker. Attach both stickers to flyer to get a promo code for a fantastic special offer
…as well as the chance to talk to our e-learning consultants, who I can proudly say are the best in the business.
e-Learning resources are increasingly accessed via mobile devices, and it was with this in mind that we developed the new Spellanywhere app for Android devices, available now from the Google Play store for just 89p.
The app is based around our popular spelling test software. Schools in the UK and abroad use Spellanywhere to create fun, self marking spelling tests that can be embedded on school websites or learning platforms. The app develops the concept, offering a bright, fun and easy to use spelling game designed to engage younger children, helping develop their spelling, vocabulary and even typing skills!
The app provides multiple levels of increasing difficulty, providing audio recordings of he most commonly used words encountered in primary education for the user to spell. Custom tests can be created by parents or educators to pose new challenges, and the user can have the words they spell incorrectly repeated back letter by letter, or practise writing out the word on their device. Test scores are automatically recorded, and saved for future sessions
We also offer Spellanywhere Lite, a free version of the game, offering the same basic functionality without the most advanced levels and the ability to create your own tests.
Spellanywhere engages all three learning styles: auditory, visual and kinesthetic, making it a fun and effective way to sharpen literacy skills. Why not give it a try? Be sure to let us know what you think of it by writing a review on the Play store.

Amongst my random thoughts and witterings, I'll keep this blog up to date with some of the best ideas and resources that I find online, plus snippets from our company news.
