Edsby, The Learning Management System For K-12, Announces Explosive Growth
Edsby is a learning management system (LMS) devoted entirely to the K-12 market. Many LMS available today are systems designed for higher education that have been retrofitted for grade school and high school. Edsby is the K-12 platform of the future, today.
Edsby, a 2017 SIIA CODiE award winner, is also the first of its kind system to implement at the district level only, with all user accounts paid for and provided by the district ensuring 100% participation from the top down. The single walled garden app means you don’t need to go outside of the Edsby platform for personalized learning tools and in-depth realtime student progress. Edsby keeps students, teachers and parents on the same page, all the time.
Earlier this month the company announced explosive user growth adding half a million more school district users. The new users come courtesy of new district-wide implementations of Edsby at districts such as:
- Algoma District School Board
- Nippissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board
- Rainy River District School Board
- Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools
- Superior-Greenstone District School Board
- York Region District School Board
In total, these district-wide Edsby rollouts represent 161,900 students, 24,300 staff and 259,000 parent accounts, for a total of 445,200 new users.
“We had been looking for a platform to do more than simply display a grade at any given reporting period,” said Dr. David F. Khatib, associate superintendent of inclusive learning, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools, a district of 9,000 students. “Rather, we were looking for a way to engage all teachers, students, and parents in the learning and assessment process. We believe that Edsby will do this for us.”
“Many school districts are now recognizing the benefits of district-managed enterprise learning and analytics platforms like Edsby,” said Edsby President John Myers. “Individual point solutions adopted by teachers expose K-12 districts to privacy and security risks and are hard to control centrally. In a single, secure app, Edsby enables a region’s teachers to ‘fly in formation’ and assess and report on student progress the same way, which gives all students in the area the same opportunities for success.”
