Samsung Makes Education Cool with the Learning Hub [Video Demo]
Some of you may already be familiar with Samsung’s various social and cloud “hubs” that are included on current Sammy tablets and smartphones. So far they have the Social, Music, Video, Reading, and Game Hubs but they are getting ready to add the new Learning Hub that was announced at MWC. I imagine you are wondering what the Learning Hub actually is and thanks to our friends at the Phone Arena, we now have a video demo from a Samsung specialist himself. Essentially you can watch a video lecture on one half of the screen while a text explanation is displayed on the other half. What’s cool about this idea is that you can use a stylus (or finger) to highlight or take notes on the text portion of the lecture. A very interactive way of learning indeed, and one that could change education for the better.
When the Learning Hub launches on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 LTE on launch, it will provide access to over 6,000 textbooks and videos spanning across 30 different publishers. As you probably already imagined, some of the content will be free but the majority will most likely come at a reasonable price. This isn’t a bad thing when talking about furthering one’s education. Jump past the break to see what the Learning Hub is all about.
