iLearnNEarn 1.3.0 Released with Slew of New Features

Special needs classrooms don't usually paint an orderly picture. But with a custom-built app for autism, things could be promising for students and convenient for teachers.
Dec. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- The latest version of special needs education app iLearnNEarn – developed by WebTeam Corporation as part of its flagship autism intervention project Shanesh COLORS – hits iTunes with a number of exciting features such as auto-registration and optional profile creation for users. The user interface is also enhanced to improve the overall gameplay experience.

The auto-registration feature, which automatically creates a default profile for regular users, is a new addition in the latest version of iLearnNEarn. Once the default profile is created, the user can simply hit ‘Continue’ to start playing.

“Auto-registration is a completely new functionality in the brief history of Shanesh”, said Nish Parikh, CEO of WebTeam Corporation. “We wanted to make sure our users can quickly get on with the purpose the app is built for, i.e., playing the activities that are based on applied behavior analysis,” Parikh asserted.

Those who already have an earlier edition of the app can tap ‘Switch User’ to go to the Login screen and start playing using their existing login details. Notably, the new patch retains some of the previous functionalities of iLearnNEarn, such as creating profiles for multiple students.

Once the 30-day trial is over, the user has to create a profile to purchase the app. There are three packages to choose from – Silver, Gold and Platinum. At $4.99, the Silver package allows for three activities at a time. The Gold package, available at $9.99, accommodates five activities at a time, while the $19.99 Platinum package does not put any restriction on the number of activities.

“Registration is important because it helps a user obtain details of individual scores and also track progress,” said KJ Sharma, senior advisor to WebTeam Corporation. “A registered user can also customize the activities that are included in the app’s library, making it easier to ascertain the progress the child is making,” Sharma added.

“We are living in times of rapidly-evolving touchscreen technology, with schools looking to utilize it to the benefit of special needs students. Fortunately, we are experiencing great success as well as challenges as we are upgrading our existing apps and developing new ones. Based on the feedback and suggestions from our users in the classroom, our goal is to make the iLearnNEarn App Series as classroom-friendly as possible. We are working on to improve teachers' experience. Paying close attention to the fact that special needs classroom environment usually remains very stressful and busy, we are focused on making constant improvement in the area of program setup, configuration, monitoring and management,” Parikh said in a telephonic interview from New Jersey.

The CEO of WebTeam Corporation disclosed a part of the company’s future planning, saying that instead of having to switch user every time a new student is required to be assigned, the teacher can create multiple user profiles using a single login, which would help expedite intervention delivery.

There are a few Android and iPad apps on the pipeline, expected to be released around Christmas and the New Year.
