Announcing the Official Launch of ExamTime

127 product releases, 4 language versions, 938,195 study resources and 1 owl later, we are officially launching our complete ExamTime version! We first introduced ourselves in late September 2012, with our first beta version. Back then, we had light versions of a mind map tool, a flashcard maker and a quiz creator.

Big thanks to all our users who have helped shape ExamTime over the past 22 months (it would take too long to name you all!). Your feedback, comments, survey results and more gave us direction and insight. It started with some pioneering young souls, eager to see how online learning could help them succeed. Since then, that band of pioneers has been joined by a flourishing online community. We’ve listened to what you’ve had to say, and we built up ExamTime based on this feedback. Now it’s time to launch ExamTime into the big bad world, let it fly…

So before we move forward toward 1 million users and beyond, how about a quick re-cap of all the major features that have been added in beta phase – and there’s been plenty.

Here’s how ExamTime has evolved…
