i Get IT - A Quick Tour
May 30, 2012 - Detroit, – i GET IT, the online self-paced training solution for engineers from Tata Technologies, announced the availability of an i GET IT iPad app, creating a convenient way to access the widest selection of engineering content ever made available to iPad users. The app is available through the online iPad App Store.
“This is a milestone for i GET IT,” said Dan Miles, Vice President iProducts – Tata Technologies, commenting on the release of the iPad app. “There has never been this much engineering training content available from a single source for iPad users – including engineers, educators and students; and this app makes that content easy to access from just about any location.”
The i GET IT iPad app allows users to logon to their existing i GET IT account and access their personal learning path, including courses in SolidWorks, Autodesk products, Siemens PLM products and Dassault Systemes products. It also allows new users to sign up for free memberships and experience the full range of free courses available in the i GET IT portfolio. Miles noted that course content cannot currently be purchased using the iPad app, but that enhanced functionality is planned.
Tata Technologies is an authorized Apple Developer, through the iOS Developer Program. Under that program, apps are evaluated and certified before they are made available through the online App Store.
“Offering our industry-leading training and knowledge portfolio via the iPad is part of the overall strategy of expanding i GET IT to meet the needs of engineering professionals worldwide,” said Miles. “More than 50 percent of i GET IT accesses are from outside the United States, including throughout the Asia-Pacific region and Europe. This iPad app supports that global community and enhances global access.”
