Acer America today announced that it is one of the first to offer schools and education customers a set of creativity apps that can be easily deployed and managed through Google Admin Console. For 40 million Chromebook users worldwide, Acer is making purchasing and managing app licenses easier than ever and helping schools boost student learning.
Acer education customers can work directly with Acer to purchase and license the creativity apps, and then deploy and manage them via the Google Admin Console for use on Chromebooks by faculty, staff and students. This process simplifies the app lifecycle, especially for administrators rolling out new apps and managing them at scale across schools and districts. Also, it makes the login process easier for students, since every app in the collection uses Google Sign-In to quickly and securely confirm the app license and unlock all features and content.
This new licensing program is being rolled out with an initial collection of six creativity tools for Chromebooks: Book Creator for creating books, Soundtrap for music and podcasts, Infinite Painter for artwork, Squid for diagrams and notes, WeVideo for video creation, and Explain Everything for screencasts. With these ready-to-use apps and Acer Chromebooks, students are empowered with the powerful creativity tools they need to keep up with a modern curriculum.
“The new creativity tools paired with Acer Chromebooks encourage students to express thoughts, design products, spark ideas, collaborate with classmates, create multimedia and more,” said Nidhi Tassone, Senior Manager, Commercial Marketing, Acer America. “Plus, the streamlined system of purchasing, deploying and provisioning these transformational new apps will help administrators and teachers focus on the most important part of their job – helping students learn.”
Pricing varies by license quantity and apps. Education customers in North America can contact SWlicensing@acer.com for more information from Acer.
