Excerpt, organize and share, thoughts, ideas, and knowledge topics in a natural way, - simple and fast, without the interruption of the flow of ideas by having to think how to organise it, first.

ILA (CS) is the first incarnation of the iLA platform and is designed with deep learning, easy knowledge sharing and project planning in mind. Well, sure you can also just take notes and "beam" them to a friend or colleague.
"Beam me a card" became a synonym for share your idea. "Beam me the desktop" a synonym for show me your plan.
So tell us how iLA supports you.
ILA helps with the every day jot-it-down needs as well as complex project planning, but more importantly iLA actively supports deep, insightful learning:
Excerpt, note, phrase, cluster are important activities in the learning process. Learning with iLA is the creative act to deconstruct external knowledge and internalise it by re-construction and integration in the own learn- and understanding pattern.
This trains knowledge competence and supports deep, insightful learning
With iLA we can share easy and fast our ideas, with a tap of our finger, with anyone who has iLA on his system. iLA "discovers" other ILAs on a WLAN; one tap and we can send content to other iLAs. per email we share content with even more people.
ILA was designed with two UX principles in mind:
- close proximity controls (everything you need you find close to your focus point)
- no automated context changes (the user controls when to switch context)
This is especially important to not interrupt the flow of thoughts / ideas.
"One of these apps with a user experience where you can "just do".
ILA helps me to put down what jumps to my head, fast and before it fades, without having to think about the information organization first. That is a big advantage.
I don't know about you, but my thoughts and ideas are mostly very volatile. This app gives me the chance to take a snapshot of my thoughts and play with it later, nothing is lost anymore."
ILA (CS) is part of a learn-, teach- and knowledge sharing platform for students, educators and professionals alike. And now it comes to iOS / OSX.
This is the beginning of your life long learning, knowledge sharing and project planning activities and the end of thinking in technical terms.
Just do it and share.
