MEDL Presents Tether for the iPad to Transform Education(April 12, 2012)
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCBB:MEDL), a leader in mobile app development, announced today the release of Tether - The Interactive Whiteboard for iPad and Mac OS. Tether, a revolution in interactive whiteboards, was built in partnership with tenured educator and entrepreneur Dr. Andrew Taylor. Tether harnesses the accessibility of the iPad and the power of the Mac OS into one comprehensive, mobile whiteboard system. Using the iPad app and the Mac OS app together, Tether enables presenters to control a presentation on their desktop, laptop and/or tower-controlled projector from their iPad while moving freely about the room, creating greater engagement with the audience. In addition, the app acts as a universal remote to other desktop applications.
Tether - The Interactive Whiteboard revolutionizes the way teachers and presenters distribute information, allowing them to control the presentation easily from anywhere in the room while interacting with their audience. The Mac OS app responds in real time; a presenter's entries instantly appear on the main display screen. Tether also comes loaded with a suite of essential features such as a drawing tool, typing tool, and save and share options. In addition to serving teachers and presenters, the app is also great for general users who want to remotely control their Mac OS.
"As a teacher and presenter, I was frustrated being chained to the stationary whiteboard or computer at the front of the classroom. Tether actually un-tethers the speaker so they're free to move about and engage with their audience," said Dr. Andrew Taylor. "Teaming with MEDL Mobile to create Tether, with its ease-of-use and intuitive functionality, has made it possible to enhance the instructional experience in the classroom and provide a great tool for any presenter."
"Today, schools, businesses and consumers in general are stretching every dollar but still need to keep pace with current technology," said Dave Swartz, MEDL Mobile co-founder and chief creative officer. "We are pleased to work with Dr. Taylor to offer teachers and presenters a beneficial tool that helps schools and businesses get the most out of their budget and save resources."
Tether - The Interactive Whiteboard allows the user to take screenshots of the presentation and save them as pictures, and features a recording function that allows the instructor or presenter to record their presentation and instantly make it available; thus simplifying the process of archiving and disseminating lectures and presentations. It is an excellent tool for eLearning, blended learning, home- or hospital-bound instruction, asynchronous training, software demos, lectures, keynote addresses and other uses. To use Tether, users just need the iPad app, the Mac OS app and a simple Wi-Fi connection. Tether - The Interactive Whiteboard is available now in the Apple App Store for $24.99. The Mac OS app is free.
