The Edsby digital learning platform picks up where many of today’s LMSes leave off when it comes to the unique needs of K-12. Whereas lightweight systems like Google Classroom might only offer blended learning and rudimentary assessments, and traditional LMSes like Canvas, originally designed for higher education, are fuller featured, they aim to serve intermediate and senior years of K-12.
What makes Edsby unique is that it has been purpose-built for the enterprise needs of K-12 districts and governments. Unlike other systems, it serves the needs of early year and elementary teachers, students and their parents—not just senior ones. Its parent communication and workflow are hard to beat; its market-leading assessment and reporting seem to surpass those built into mainstream LMSes and SISes—and all in a centrally managed, enterprise grade platform customized to the specific needs of individual districts or whole regions.
A Canadian company not as well known in the U.S., Edsby is used widely elsewhere in the world. It has been adopted by the entire country of New Zealand. In 2020, driven partially by COVID, Edsby onboarded more new district-wide customers than any previous year. It was recently selected by an entire Canadian province and is onboarding a whole Canadian territory. Edsby is the Cool Tool Award Winner (2021) for “Best Learning Management System” as part of The EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
