'Social' LMS Comes to iPad

Ed tech developer Interactyx has brought its learning management platform, Topyx, to Apple's iPad.

Topyx, which was first released a little more than a year ago, is a fully hosted SaaS learning management system that combines traditional LMS functionality with Web 2.0 and social networking tools (audio and video chat, blogs, whiteboards, forums, etc.) similar to those found on popular social networking services, along with e-commerce functionality and content management.

Topyx is also available in a mobile edition, which includes location-aware functionality, is available for a variety of platforms, including Google Android devices and iPhone OS-based devices, and now specifically the Apple iPad.
