MindConnex Learning has launched "Julius Caesar" in its flagship "Shakespeare In Bits" series.

The fifth play in the series, Shakespeare In Bits: Julius Caesar is the third product launch for the company in nine months, having launched Hamlet in January 2012 and A Midsummer Night's Dream in September 2011. Its other titles include Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet.  

Shakespeare In Bits is a multimedia resource designed to enable educators and students to experience, understand and appreciate The Bard's plays in bite-sized chunks, or "bits."

Described by Common Sense Media as an "invaluable study guide brimming with supplemental material," each Shakespeare In Bits play includes:

  • The original unabridged text as The Bard intended

  • A fully animated and voiced performance, bringing the play to life

  • In-line translations for modern meanings of archaic words at a click

  • Notes and analyses to ensure a thorough understanding of the text

  • Character biographies, relationship maps, and interactive cast list

Available on iPad/iPhone, PC/Mac and online via school subscription, Shakespeare In Bits has received significant market recognition by being awarded Readers' Choice Award for best K-12 edtech product by eSchool Media, Best in eLearning by Nokia Digital Media Awards and Best Content Provider Solution by EdTech Digest.

MindConnex Learning is currently finalizing production plans for subsequent Shakespeare In Bits titles, as well as new digital product lines focused on English Language Arts subject matter areas.

The company is offering English teachers a free two-week trial of all its plays on Shakespeare In Bits Live!, the online, subscription-based version of the app series. To avail of this free trial, email: info@mindconnex.com or visit: http://bit.ly/zmPlJM.
