SS&C Technologies (Nasdaq:SSNC), a global provider of investment and financial software-enabled services and software, announced the launch of a free iPad application on the iTunes App Store.
The Zoologic Finance 2.0 app allows users to access accredited courses for the financial services industry from their iPad or other mobile devices.
The first course offered in the Finance 2.0 mobile app is "Introduction to Securities Markets." The course outlines the function and organization of capital markets, and describes how securities are structured, priced and sold. Users will learn about the participants in the securities markets industry, and identify and compare the types of securities being traded today. Designed for the iPad, the comprehensive course features interactive animations, glossary definitions, dynamic content and knowledge-check questions.
"We are extending our commitment to make professional education accessible in virtually every format that exists. The Finance 2.0 app is a robust and easy-to-navigate app for online learning," said Richard Shalowitz, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, SS&C Zoologic. "This application sets a new standard for how people learn on their iPad and mobile devices, delivering quality education anytime, anywhere."
A Zoologic client since 2010, David S. Krause, PhD, Director of Applied Investment Management at Marquette University said, "Portability is important when you're talking about learning and continuing education today. Marquette wants to lead the way with what these devices can do for education and the Zoologic Finance 2.0 app shows us how to create a truly mobile learning experience."
In addition to the Finance 2.0 app, Zoologic's new mobile learning (mLearning) platform uses the latest cloud-based technologies, enabling users to take Zoologic courses on virtually any mobile device, including Android phones. For frequent travelers, Zoologic courses are available in an iBook format so users can download courses for use offline.
