About Cleverlize (a promotion by the creators)

Cleverlize develops a solution that enables educators to bring their teaching to
mobile devices. The solution therefore is suitable for all educators recognizing that
their students are consuming more and more content on smartphones and tablets.

Go mobile in 3 simple steps – with Cleverlize creating your own mobile micro
learning content is possible without any programming skills. Just file your content
in the Cleverlize App Editor and choose a custom design. Following the creation of
content as well as adjusting the design you can distribute and (if you want) sell it via
a “one-click” solution. Currently we support iOS and HTML5 but soon there will be
more platforms available.

Multiple interaction formats – Cleverlize’s learning content is interactive
and equipped with multi learning features. These can be simple articles, images
or embedded Youtube videos as well as tests with different question formats, e.g.
multiple choice, matching, sorting or cloze. Or just integrate flashcards to your mobile
learning content.

Access from everywhere and at anytime – publish to the Cleverlize
Marketplace app to offer your students access to your learning content 24/7. It
doesn’t matter where they are. With Cleverlize’s marketplace your contents are even
available offline and on multiple devices (e.g. iPhone or iPad).

It’s just the beginning – the Cleverlize App Editor and its publishing
possibilities are just the first step of a next generation learning experience. Further
versions of Cleverlize will contain intelligent analytics features, gamification templates
and integration of social networks.
