February 6, 2007

I saw "Microsoft "Grava" may create opportunities for academic ISVs" on whatisnew.com.

The Microsoft "Grava" team is using WPF…CTP sounds like it is coming soon.

What is "Grava"?

"Grava" is the code name for a new set of tools from Microsoft’s Education Products Group that is designed to allow the education community to create and assemble materials that will increase discovery and allow learners to go at their own pace and learning style. "Grava" tools are scheduled for release in fall 2007.

"Grava" Player—The "Grava" player enables users to view the rich interactive content created in "Grava" Authoring.

Developer Tools—The "Grava" SDK is built on Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and provides a programming model and tools for building rich educational experiences.

Authoring—"Grava" Authoring allows users to create interactive and stimulating non-linear projects to view in the "Grava" player.

Services—"Grava" provides an array of services which complement the authoring, SDK and player components. These services include the ability to do assessments, log results, and create intelligent learning solutions.
