Simtrol, a developer of device management software, and Promethean, a provider of interactive classroom solutions, have announced an exclusive partnership, according to which Promethean will integrate Simtrol’s device management software into its Activclassroom technology.
The new integration is expected to provide educators the ability to manage disparate equipment including PCs, projectors, document cameras, and other devices used in the classroom. This partnership is also expected to enable teachers to control classroom equipment from a single user interface on the Activboard.
Mark Elliott, president of Promethean, said: Educators are increasingly leveraging multiple technologies to enhance teaching and learning within the classroom. Our partnership with Simtrol reinforces our commitment to providing integrated solutions for education and establishes the Promethean Activclassroom as the unifying platform for integrating these technologies and simplifying the lives of teachers and administrators.
