In our school they have not standardized on iPads. Do you have any plans to allow students the option of logging into a web-based version of Ask3? That would be a big help because then an entire class could use it and get exposure to TechSmith.

Hi Nick and Will (and everyone),

Right now we are focusing on making the iPad version the best it can be.

That being said, we realize the world doesn't revolve around iPads. If we made a version of Ask3 that worked for the web (on a desktop computer, for example) and/or non-touch based devices would we the inability to draw on the screen be a game breaker?

iPads have a nice ability to communicate with each other. So, we can take advantage of this by automatically delivering the files for you and notifying the users that content is there, all within the app or the device. If we are outside of the app, things get complicated and we could have diminished capabilities here too. Again, deal breaker?

We'd love to understand your perspective on this to inform our decision.

The idea of this app is great, but it seems to be limited to only a 1:1 ipad classroom. I am looking at this app for teachers who are flipping their classroom. However, few have a class set of iPads. We support a BYOD environment. There doesn't seem to be even a way to export or import videos. If students could at least watch and comment/ask and answer questions on a web browser, it would be great.

As for delivering the content, teachers can direct students to login when there is new content. (Presumably they will have an ipad).

Oh, yes! A web-based version or Android app would be fabulous! We are implementing BYOD in our district on two campuses (about 2,500 students). As you can imagine, there will be a slew of products in their hands. It would benefit them greatly to be able to use a single app across all devices! This would be wonderful!

With also have a BYOD campus. For now could you at least make our videos sharable through a URL link? That way at least the students who are absent or need review can view them online?
Also a web version of Ask3 to login and view videos even if students could add comments by typing text or even just view online?

That would be a great feature to have for now.
Thank you,

I completely agree with Sharon - - I can't really recommend Ask 3 to my teachers without students being able to interact with the videos on a platform other than iPad.

A web version that was view only (but allows students to ask and respond to questions) is a great step in the right direction
