Educational Technology

Education Technology (also known as “EdTech”) refers to an area of digital technology devoted to the development and application of tools (including software, hardware, and appropriate technological processes) intended to promote education.

Teaching technology platforms

Learning management systems

Learning Management Systems (LMS) administer, document, track, report and deliver learning. Educational assets are uploaded to the Learning Management System, which makes them accessible for remote learners. In some cases, the LMS may have built-in eLearning authoring tools that allow the user to develop online training materials without additional third-party software.

Social platforms

Social platforms connect students with each other. In K-12 settings, social platforms are being used to connect students and educators to other stakeholders, such as parents. Some, such as Graduway, focus on communication between alumni and on career growth.
