Learning resource gives UK school children access to over 500,000 books, sites and videos
London, UK - 19 March 2013 - To mark the beginning of UK revision season, online education experts Autology World Ltd today announced the launch of the Autology Homework Tutor app for iOS, Android and Windows 8 devices. Aimed at UK students aged 11-19, Homework Tutor provides access to over 500,000 resources including GCSE and A-Level textbooks, revision guides and online activities, all searchable by topic, subject and key stage.
The Autology Homework Tutor app provides a wealth of education resources, thanks to partnerships with the UK’s leading school textbook publishers including Letts & Lonsdale, World Book Encyclopaedia, Heinemann and over 4,500 leading education sites.
Autology Homework Tutor’s power lies in its sophisticated and intelligent search engine.
