bulb Digital Portfolios Launches New iOS App

LAFAYETTE, Colo., Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today bulb Digital Portfolios, a modern learning tool used by students and educators, released their native iOS app. A premium feature exclusive to the new app is a best-in-class multimodal screen capture function, which allows a user to screen capture video of themselves drawing on or annotating an image while narrating their process simultaneously.

"School technology should be efficient, easy to use and make sense to all of us. It should advance learning and serve educators and students. Our iOS app is all of these things and is the best learning app in today's market," said Erik Petrik, co-founder and chief creative officer at bulb. "The design is beautiful and simple and its robust functionality allows the user to record any type of teachable or shareable moment."

The new multimodal screen capture feature includes the ability to:
draw and annotate images within the app.
create audio recordings within the app.
combine tools to annotate and narrate work while recording a video of their screen simultaneously.

"This new app really speaks to students. What they love most is being able to record themselves drawing, annotating over an image and narrating their process. And, they can do all of this at the same time from within the app," said Nancy Garvey, the director of digital learning at Coppell ISD in Texas. "From my perspective, the best technology motivates students to create both in and out of the classroom, and this is it."

The new app provides a slew of other features to increase accessibility, simplicity and beauty, including:
Quick access to media tools-a new anchored media bar and even simpler "add media" buttons increase the intuitive-nature of creating a bulb digital portfolio.
Visual previews of content-visual previews of pages within any collection allow for quicker navigation of content and more intelligent organizing of pages within collections.
One touch airdrop sharing-sharing a bulb page has never been easier as users can airdrop a link to a page, collection, or profile for others to visit.
Celebratory confetti upon publishing-bulb is proud of your work and wants you to be, too. Sharing your smarts should be fun.

"Our students and educators love the bulb Digital Portfolios iOS app because it does all the heavy lifting on formatting and designing of content for them, winning them back valuable classroom time they can spend on what matters - the teaching and learning. The app makes everyone's work look professional, every single time," said Liz Booth, secondary instructional technology manager in Katy ISD.
