A natural progression for E-learning. Used daily in over 30 000 classrooms across the country.

The Vision

RM Easiteach Next Generation is a software application that allows teachers to build rich and engaging interactive activities that deliver inspiring learning experiences and that utilise the best interactive technologies available. These experiences are shared across the world and many people contribute to the growing set of tools, resources and features so that even more people will experience the engagement and inspiration bought about by great learning.

Today

The release of RM Easiteach Next Generation is the first step toward realizing the vision. It embraces a new application architecture that allows more features to be easily added. From the outset it supports many languages. The tool bar system has been replaced by a more sophisticated ribbon bar that provides rapid access to commonly used functions in just a couple of touches. Much of the ‘Curriculum’ functionality is carried over from the previous Easiteach software, but each element is rewritten to take advantage of the new application.

Media and Licensing

Each license of RM Easiteach Next Generation will require a unique product key. Each order of RM Easiteach Next Generation will come with a Customer Reference Number, this can be used to register the product online, followed by an email with your license key. The license key is provided within a license certificate. It is a proof of license and is to be used to activate the software registration process.

Updates

RM Easiteach will be continuously updated with new widgets and functionalities. Users are automatically notified of updates and the delivery mechanism is via the Easiteach World Website.

Languages

One of the great things about Easiteach Next Generation is that is has been built to support multiple languages. New languages will be released on a regular basis.

 

RM Easiteach is simple to learn and use, it will also work well with many other RM Products including Easi-Speak, Tuff-Cam, Tuff-Scope etc. RM Easiteach World, a new supporting website will arrive soon and provide access to new resources, content and new functions in the form of mini-applications called widgets.
