Agilix Labs Announces Enhanced Software Development Kit for Building GoBinder Mobile Learning Enhancements

Agilix Labs Announces Enhanced Software Development Kit for Building GoBinder Mobile Learning Enhancements

ORLANDO, Fla., EDUCAUSE, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Agilix Labs, Inc., a worldwide leader in mobile learning solutions, today announced the availability of the beta version of the GoBinder(TM) Software Development Kit (GoBinder SDK). The GoBinder SDK enables application developers to build mobile learning enhancements to GoBinder 2006.

Agilix GoBinder(TM) has an open, extensible architecture enabling developers to build enhancements to it. Example enhancements could include integration with course management systems and other online learning resources, support of RSS feeds with an RSS reader, collaboration between students and others, blogging, podcasting and other education-specific features.

The GoBinder SDK is a developer toolset that enables the creation of third-party plug-ins to Agilix GoBinder. GoBinder supports three major plug-in application programming interfaces (APIs)-user interface (UI), database and synchronization. The SDK provides an extensive developer guide and sample source code that exercise the plug-in APIs. Because Agilix GoBinder 2006 and Blackboard Backpack(TM) share the same APIs, the GoBinder SDK can also be used to develop plug-ins for Blackboard Backpack. Blackboard Backpack allows students and faculty to easily download local course and organization content in the Blackboard Academic Suite.

"We have experienced tremendous interest in GoBinder," said Curt Allen, president and chief executive officer of Agilix. "Because of that demand, we have education ISVs and institutions who want to add enhancements to GoBinder. With the combination of GoBinder's plug-in APIs and the GoBinder SDK, this will be very straight forward. The new GoBinder architecture enables the community to benefit from the collective innovation of the entire ecosystem."

GoBinder's APIs support the Microsoft .NET Framework, including both 1.1 and 2.0 versions. As a result, developers can build GoBinder plug-ins using Microsoft Visual Studio 2003 or 2005. Plug-ins can be built using any .NET language, such as Visual C# and Visual Basic .NET.

"The GoBinder SDK makes it possible for the DyKnow and GoBinder technologies to interoperate in a manner not previously possible," said Laura Small, president of DyKnow. "This will enable us to create new value for our customers by combining the best of both products."

The GoBinder SDK helps software developers, such as DyKnow, build plug-ins that leverage many GoBinder features, including:

* User Interface Extensions: The ability to add custom user interface components to GoBinder to give students access to the extended functionality. Plug-ins can leverage GoBinder's rich user interface, digital ink note-taking controls, Digital Paper facility and more, plus have the ability to add standard UI components such as custom toolbars, pull down menus and dialog boxes. * Defining New Data Types: The ability to store semi-structured data in the local GoBinder database. The GoBinder database is designed for handling large text, digital ink, rich media, HTML, PDF, audio, video and other objects that are typically not well suited for SQL databases. New data objects can be added using the Data Manager APIs. In addition, developers can leverage the GoBinder-defined data objects, such as tabs, notes, appointment, tasks and contacts, to add information defined as these object types in the GoBinder database. * Sync Providers: The ability to synchronize e-learning information to/from Web and other servers with the local GoBinder database. GoBinder has a powerful sync engine and Sync APIs to enable development of "sync providers" that synchronize data with various servers, local devices and applications. Agilix used this API to develop sync providers to Microsoft Outlook, Palm OS devices and the Blackboard Academic Suite. Multiple sync providers can be configured to run concurrently to support integration with multiple sources, such as Web sites, electronic content databases, RSS feeds, podcasts, enterprise applications and other data sources.

The GoBinder SDK is in beta testing now, with availability scheduled for later this year. For more information on GoBinder SDK or to inquire about participating in the beta testing program, contact Agilix at [email protected] or 801-932-1234.
