Press Release: New Software Helps Middle School Students Get Organized
LIGHTNING RELEASES Indianapolis, Indiana—June 13, 2014— Mobius Learning™ announced that next month it will launch Linxus™, a software suite designed to help students succeed in middle school. Typically, when children transition to middle school, the first thing to go is their ability to stay organized.
“Middle school differs from elementary school in many ways,” explains Nancy Darling, a Psychology Professor at Oberlin College. “One of the most important, but underestimated, ways is the increased pressure it puts on kids’ organizational abilities. Children have difficultly keeping track of their assignments because of the complexity of the work.”
Middle school is immensely more complex than elementary school. It’s not uncommon for children to struggle because they must quickly adapt to multiple classrooms, new teachers with different styles, more books, and more demanding projects and assignments—all while trying to understand the physical changes that affect both their emotional and their cognitive state.
Mobius Learning, creator of custom eLearning, developed Linxus based on the premise that in order for children to do well in their core classes, they must be able to study well, be organized, be punctual, and function in a safe environment.
Linxus is composed of four courses: Academic Organization, Time Management, Study Skills, and Social Citizenship. The course on Academic Organization provides strategies for using an assignment notebook effectively and staying organized at school and at home.
Linxus was crafted by instructional designers, software engineers, and graphic developers who combined the latest studies on child development with cutting-edge instructional design methodologies and multimedia principles to create an immersive learning environment that helps students develop skills that will last a lifetime.
Linxus features the latest gameplay mechanics to help engage learners, onscreen characters to help users connect to the content, comprehensive assessments to help teachers compare results, and interactive quizzes and strategies to help students easily retain and recall information.
Mobius Learning will unveil Linxus on Thursday, July 10, at the Elementary School Principles Conference & Exposition (NAESP) in Nashville, Tennessee. The software will be available online at a suggested retail price of $4.99 per student.
