Versal is a service that allows teachers to build and publish interactive online courses, homework assignments and tutorials. The company launched its service out of beta today, but maybe more importantly, it also announced a partnership with Wolfram Research.
Thanks to this deal with Wolfram Research — which includes Stephen Wolfram joining the Versal board of directors — Versal now allows teachers to embed content from Wolfram into their courses. Currently, this means teachers can use the Wolfram Language to create content. The company tells me that a deeper integration is planned for the future, which will include support for Wolfram Demonstrations, Wolfram|Alpha widgets and other Wolfram resources (if you hadn’t noticed, Stephen Wolfram likes to name products after himself).
