Promethean Planet upgraded

08 Jun 2010

Promethean Planet has unveiled a new look that the company says gives users of its interactive whiteboard community an enhanced experience.

Upgrades include a one-click mega-menu and enhanced resource search and filtering, making it quicker to search for and access over 20,000 free resources. Planet's free online storage also gives each member up to 1GB of storage.

In addition a private group functionality has been designed to meet the needs of educator groups, schools, districts and education authorities. Members can now set up private groups that include private forum, blog and wiki functionality as well as the ability to file-share within the private group environment.

More enhancements will be rolled out over the year including “new premium services” though the company didn't say what these may be.

Brent Taggart, Head of Promethean Planet said: “Promethean Planet is the world’s largest online community of its kind and its success is due to its members that span 150 countries. We provide the platform for teachers and educationalists to share lessons and ideas, source training, and interact with their peers. The enhancements and improved functionality unveiled today have been designed with our members in mind in order to further improve their Planet experience and to build on its market leading position.”
