Kno Introduces Kno Me Personal Study Dashboard

Kno, Inc., a provider of education software, launched Kno Me, a personal study dashboard that helps students measure their engagement with each Kno eTextbook they use. Students can check in frequently to see near-real-time stats on their study behavior, interaction levels, time management, and personal progress. And with Kno Me social sharing, students can opt in to share their results with peers and even follow the engagement levels of other classmates (perhaps the best student in the class). Students decide what they will share.

The study insights available from Kno Me are based on Kno’s proprietary analytics platform, including the average time a student spends interacting with the textbook and time within specific chapters, the percentage of pages in the chapter the student annotates, and the percentage of glossary terms the student has mastered. Kno Me is available on all Kno interactive textbooks for iPad, Windows 8, and web browsers and will soon be available for Android and Windows 7.

Kno offers interactive textbooks for K-12 and higher education students. At Kno.com, students can find more than 200,000 digital titles from 65 leading textbook publishers. Kno’s digital textbooks provide more than 70 interactive features that are designed to increase learning efficiencies and engagement, saving students up to 90 minutes a week in study time per book.
