It seems like Samsung is paying their developers big bux to take on the mighty Apple. This time the war is being fought on the education front.
Hot on the heals of Apple’s iTunes University Samsung is launching their own Learning Hub. Whilst its not “officially official” as yet, it seems more than likely that it will be announced next week at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona.
The Learning Hub will provide free education materials from 30 major educational institutions ranging from primary schools through to universities. The Learning Hub’s aim is to encourage individual learning using an automatic scoring system to motivate less disciplined students & there are no shortage of textbooks and videos to keep you busy (over 6000 titles !)
At this time, only Korea has launched their Learning Hub but we expect the rest of the world to follow suit after Mobile World Conference at the end of Feb 2012.
Initially this is aimed at the Galaxy 10.1 and 8.9 tablets with plans to extend this to the rest of the Galaxy crew.
Wonder how my Galaxy Note’s S-pen will do at the Learning Hub….
