Kaplan University’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) Relaunches Stalla Content as Mobile CFA® Exam Prep App for iPad, Android Tablets and More

As the global leader in Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) review, the Schweser division of Kaplan University’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) has relaunched its Stalla content as a comprehensive exam prep app designed specifically for iPad and Android tablets, with a companion app for iPhone, iPod touch, and Android phones.

With Stalla, candidates can access study sessions and reading materials, test themselves, and assess their progress through the following three areas of the app:

  • Prepare—Stalla offers a complete study solution covering the entire CFA curriculum for all three levels of the program.
  • Practice—Students apply and reinforce the knowledge gained in studying through customized question sets and interactive flashcards.
  • Perform—Students accurately assess comprehension of the CFA curriculum through multiple assessment exams and integrated performance tracking.

While the new app provides features that enhance learning, Stalla’s gaming elements make studying enjoyable and competitive. The social media-inspired platform gives students access to a global network of actively engaged CFA candidates and charterholders, allowing candidates to compare where they rank among their peers and compete for the top spot in their city, state, nation, and the world. In addition, with cross-device syncing, candidates can study when and where they want, and resume sessions where they’ve previously left off.

“By integrating gaming and social technology with mobile interfaces, we consider the new Stalla CFA app to be truly disruptive innovation in the test prep industry,” said Dr. Andrew Temte, CFA, president of the Kaplan University School of Professional and Continuing Education (PACE). “We’ve always been student-driven, and the new app equips students with a personalized resource that places them at the center of the learning experience.”

For more than two decades, PACE’s Schweser division has helped tens of thousands of candidates pass the CFA exams and earn the financial industry’s coveted designation. In late 2011, Kaplan Schweser purchased the assets of Stalla Seminars, a leading competitor in CFA exam preparation.

Stalla’s new mobile study solution is available exclusively through the Apple App Store (for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch) and Google Play (for Android phones and tablets). For more information, visit www.stalla.com.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications.

A service mesh like Istio addr...
