What is Lightwell?
Lightwell is a new tool that enables students to build, prototype and launch their own apps with visual coding.
What kinds of apps can Lightwell make?
Lightwell can make interactive, animated apps for mobile iOS devices. It's the best software to create truly interactive story apps, as we built it to help us make the award-winning series "The Adventures of Pan" which hit #1 in over 48 countries in App Store categories. As a versatile tool, Lightwell can also create interactive games, puzzles, comics and portfolio apps.
Does Lightwell run on Chromebooks?
Very soon it will! Our developers are hard at work and Lightwell will be ready for Chromebooks in Spring 2018. To make sure your Chromebook is compatible, please reference this list of devices that can run Android apps (link: https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/dev/chromium-os/chrome-os-systems-supporting-android-apps).
How have other teachers been using Lightwell in their classrooms?
We're glad you asked. Lightwell is being used in wide variety classes ranging from Coding and Computer Science to Digital Art to History and Science. Head on over to our Educator Spotlight page to learn more!
Do you offer lesson plans and example projects?
We sure do! You can find free class lessons here as well as example projects here. In addition, we're always looking for feedback on what educators find most useful in the classroom. Have a unique need? Contact us here.
Do you offer discounts for multiple account seats?
Lightwell education pricing is already a 50% discount on professional pricing if you purchase individual seat licenses. However, if you'd like to purchase classroom or school licenses, there are further discounts offered.
Can my students submit their apps to the App Store?
They certainly can! If publishing on the App Store is a priority, you're in luck! Apple announced recently that they are waiving developer fees for schools and non-profits. If publishing isn't a priority, Xcode allows you to load your apps onto iOS devices individually.
Can my IT department use distributing software to get Lightwell onto a lot of computers at once?
Yes, they can! Lightwell can be installed with a simple DMG file, which your IT team can distribute to multiple computers on campus.
