Lots of things are changing at Frog at the moment. I’ve been dying to tell everyone about it, but we’ve had to keep quiet about much of it. Even now, there are only a few thinks I can leak out. I’ll put things into a series of blog posts as and when I’m able to talk about them.
For those that aren’t already aware, Frog recently won the contract to supply a Learning Platform to all 10,000 schools in Malaysia. Because the technical landscape in Malaysia is slightly different than in the UK, we’ve built a completely new interface to Frog. This latest version of Frog is now already being rolled out to 4 million students and 2 millions parents.
We’ve also been listening carefully to what you’ve been telling us over the last couple of years, and obviously we’ve been learning how we could have done things better over the last 12 years. While we’ve been developing this new release for Malaysia we’ve made sure that everything we’re learning is going into this release for the UK, too, because if you have a full maintenance agreement with Frog you will be be receiving this upgrade later on this year. There are still a few bits and pieces we need to do to integrate some elements back in to Frog 3.
Please be assured that we haven’t forgotten about Frog 3. I’ll be blogging about current developments here too, very shortly.
We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved with the latest version of Frog, which we’ve called Frog4OS (verbally, FrogOS.)
Announcing the world’s first Learning Platform designed specifically for tablet devices (imagine yourself sat in front of your TV with a glass of wine and creating tomorrows learning resources on your iPad, or Android tablet.) Most importantly, this isn’t just a mobile interface, this is a complete application including content creation, that will run on mobile devices – you can even drag and drop widgets in it. And don’t worry, your Frog 3 built content will run seamlessly inside Frog4OS.
There are loads of other advancements in Frog4OS, too, but I’ll pass those along in a few short sharp blog posts. I’m sure you all have loads of questions, please fire them at this blog and not my mobile ;)
Folks, this is the beginning of something much, much bigger. This is just the first step on our future journey. Frog is about to revolutionise education in a number of different ways. As ever, thank you to all of our customers that helped us to get here and we look forward to changing lives with you over the next few years.
Here’s a quick video that our friends over in Malaysia created:
