[prMac.com] Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridge based, Dear Panda LLC is ringing in the new year and getting ready for the new semester with a sale on CourseNotes, their top selling iOS and Mac apps which help students take notes and stay organized. CourseNotes facilitates learning and sharing among students and teachers in the classroom. The must-have apps for students will be on sale in the Mac and iTunes App Stores through January 18th. Dear Panda also announced that they will provide promo codes to allow educators to try the app for free.
The sale couldn't come at a more opportune time for students about to start a new semester with a brand new Mac, iPad or iPhone acquired during winter break. Dear Panda is hoping that the lower price and free offer to educators will help more educators to start using the app in class, and take advantage of the long list of sharing and collaborative features that have already made it a big hit in classrooms all over the world.
As part of Dear Panda's special offer to educators, a limited supply of promo codes are available to qualified educators to download CourseNotes for free. To inquire about the free promo codes, educators are being asked to send their name, school affiliation and how they plan to use CourseNotes in the classroom to Dear Panda.
