HP today introduced new education print apps that allow direct access to assessment and test content in the Singapore market.

The IT company launched this free service in collaboration with educational publisher Singapore Asia Publishers Pte Ltd (SAP) and one of Singapore's proprietary Primary Math programme brand owners, onSponge.

Together, they will deliver high-quality education content directly to students and busy parents through print apps on HP web-connected printers.

The education print apps offer a free service that allow home-users to directly print education content on demand or schedule for HP delivery at a specific day and time of the week.

Currently, the content is pre-programmed but soon content will be available on demand, said Sang Hoon Park, print category director, printing and personal systems group, HP Singapore. Mock exam papers will also be available in future from this service, he said.

Why is HP getting into education? This is part of HP's new strategy of driving a new way of doing IT, he said.

The SAP print app is now available for download free of charge for owners of HP web-connected printers. The onSponge print app will be available later this year.

The print apps are available on HP's web-connected printers including HP Officejet Premium 6700 e-All-in-One and HP Photosmart 5520, 6520, 7520 e-All-in-One printers.
