Noteflight’s Version 1.0 of Online Notation Platform
Noteflight, LLC has launched the 1.0 version of its on-line notation platform. Noteflight is the first music notation tool to have been designed expressly for creating and sharing musical documents on the Internet. The Noteflight 1.0 platform includes free access to Noteflight’s Web site, alongside the newly-announced subscription-based service, Noteflight Learning Edition for music educators. The 1.0 release of the the Noteflight Score Editor brings with it many new features, including MusicXML import, MIDI/audio file export, lyrics, dynamic markings, and automatically transposed parts. The Score Editor now also includes a drag-and-drop editing tool, in which notes and passages can be rhythmically altered by simply dragging them sideways. The Score Editor remains available at no cost for individual and non-commercial use on the Noteflight Web site.

Noteflight Learning Edition places the Score Editor in the service of education, providing schools with private on-line communities for music learning on a paid subscription basis. With Learning Edition, teachers and students can create and share musical resources and assignments, in a way that seamlessly integrates with popular on-line course management systems such as Blackboard, Moodle, WebCT, or Haiku LMS. Students can access their resources and assignments from any Internet-enabled computer, and instructors can review and mark up work from anywhere. Learning Edition can simplify the teacher/student workflow for musical coursework, eliminating uploading, downloading, e-mail, and file conversion from the process.
