At its core, Lumin strives to deliver accessible online PDF editing tools that are user-friendly and work just how you’d expect them to. With 70 million users worldwide and counting, this company’s Kiwi founder Max Ferguson has done very well toward that end.
Lumin’s digital toolbox lets students or teachers annotate, comment and collaborate on documents and assignments in the cloud. Taking a classroom online or switching to remote learning is no easy feat, but transforming manual processes into streamlined digital experiences that are actually enjoyable is made possible through Lumin.
If you’re familiar with Google’s tools, Lumin will feel like second nature with easy integration and many similar features. Real-time sync means teachers and their students can work on assignments as though they’re in the same room.
Teachers can take their classroom online and collaborate with students digitally using their suite of digital annotation tools. They can draw, add comments or images, highlight text and build an engaging workspace that encourages and inspires students. This extends to all their administrative needs; they can use Lumin tools to adapt documents and add/remove pages, or create teams to collaborate directly with other departments and share files securely.
Currently, the company offers their Professional package completely free for teachers and students as they believe there should be no barriers to accessing great digital tools. Millions of students, teachers, professors and administrators use Lumin every day from over 40,000 educational institutions globally. For these reasons and more, Lumia earned a Cool Tool Award (finalist) for “Best E-Learning, Blended, Flipped, or Remote Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards 2023 from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
