EXHIBIT "A" 

Description of Services

Boom Cards teaching resources are cloud-resident and -served instructional-material mini-apps. Educators create the instructional material mini-apps for personal use, use with colleagues, and/or for distribution (for a fee or no fee) via the Boom Learning Store or through third-party marketplaces. Boom Cards may be assigned in ways that do not collect data or in ways that use the Boom Learning Reports feature to process and report student performance data.


The Boom Learning platform includes three elements: creation tools (provided at no charge to all users), data processing and reporting of student performance data (provide at a fee if more than 5 students), and storage for created Boom Cards mini-apps. 


Purpose

To buy, create, store, assign, and (optionally) record student progress on Boom Cards cloud-resident instructional materials.
