Amplify- Re-imagining the way teachers teach and students learn in K12 education

With headquarters in New York City and more than 1,200 employees across the country, Amplify is re-imagining the way teachers teach and students learn in K­12 education. Their products are leading the way in data-­driven instruction, breaking new ground in mobile learning and setting the standard for next-generation digital curriculum and assessment.

AppCarousel was chosen by Amplify to implement and operate the Amplify Market, a curated app store for teachers and students offered on the Amplify Tablet. AppCarousel has also created an Amplify-branded developer portal enabling developers of educational apps to register and submit their apps for review and publishing to the Amplify Market. Developers can also use the portal to find more information about developing for Amplify, and to manage all of their apps currently in the marketplace.

As more classrooms embrace mobile learning, resulting in a growing need for relevant educational apps, Amplify chose to leverage AppCarousel’s white-labelled custom solution to create its app store and developer program. By creating a curated and controlled app store environment where security is paramount, Amplify can offer students and teachers access to high-quality educational apps that have been carefully vetted for quality, safety and compliance with the COPPA and FERPA standards.

“We worked closely with AppCarousel when creating the Amplify Market, and were able to specify and integrate the specific features we needed in an app store to help enhance K-12 learning across all of our tablets,” said Mukund Sudarsan of Amplify. “We couldn’t be happier with the results. The app store and developer portal works seamlessly as part of the Amplify System, and has proven to be a compelling part of the learning experience. Educators and parents tell us that their students can safely browse through the hand-picked catalog of educational apps, with the peace of mind that unsuitable content cannot be accessed.”

Amplify has already reached more than 200,000 educators and 3 million students in all 50 states with its Amplify System, which provides a complete mobile learning platform on its Android-based Amplify Tablet used by students and teachers in the classroom. The Amplify Tablet comes pre-loaded with third party educational content and tools, and can easily integrate with teacher generated curricula in line with the curriculum selected by a district.

As the Amplify System continues to expand, Amplify and AppCarousel continue to seek the best-of-breed apps for K-12 education in the U.S. Developers can register by visiting: https://market.amplify.com/developer
