Oktopus Software

Leading Interactive Flat Panel Manufacturer TouchIT Technologies Offers Alternative for Schools, Universities and Colleges to Expensive Annual Software Subscriptions.

Birmingham, MI USA, 29th November 2016. Leading Interactive Flat Panel (IFP) Manufacturer TouchIT Technologies has incorporated into its software offering the ability to import legacy content from other manufacturer’s software through the Oktopus Software. This offers Schools and Districts a potential money saving offering versus an annual subscription which other manufacturers charge.

For the IT department of a School District, updating old Smart boards with new technology and software can be an absolute minefield. There are a lot of decisions to be made. What technology? What size LED? How much is it? What software does it come with? This question always leads to the even bigger question we guarantee will come from all the teachers “Can I keep my existing lessons?”

Teachers are renowned for building up a portfolio of lesson content that can be modified and used again and again. The prospect of losing this material or indeed having to recreate it from scratch can be a terrifying thought. Over the last 10+ years Smart Technologiesi have done a fantastic job of educating schools and universities around the world what an Interactive Whiteboard was and as such, there are a lot of their products in the marketplace. This also means that lots of the content that has been created by teachers is designed for use with SMART Notebook®; Smart’s proprietary software.

Building on the success of the Common File Format .IWB, Oktopus can now import directly .Notebook files” commented Andi Brabin, author of the eBook Bring Back My Whiteboard and CEO at TouchIT Technologies. “Oktopus Software comes with every TouchIT Interactive Flat Panel free of charge” he added. This can represent a significant software saving to the school or District over the life of the product.

In addition, the TouchIT Oktopus software is specifically designed for education. With over 70 tools and 3500 resources, TouchIT Octopus is the perfect accompaniment for the TouchIT LED. Organized into subject specific tool bars, you can display only those tools that are relevant for your class!

TouchIT Interactive Flat Panels are the latest in touch screen technology incorporating both Educational Content software and BYOD Collaboration software for the ultimate classroom experience.
