Social learning for Ontario K-12 schools

A unique region with unique needs

Ontario has one of the best school systems in the world. And it has unique educational standards that often aren’t supported by educational software.

Enter the popular Edsby modern learning management system (LMS) and analytics platform for K-12. Edsby was created in Ontario for Ontario K-12 schools. It understands how assessment is done in Ontario K-12, with levels, strands, categories of knowledge, expectations and Ontario academic reporting requirements. And it works hand in hand with the popular student information systems used in Ontario—which means it’s automatically loaded with student, class and parent information, saving teachers precious time.

Edsby supports Ontario K-12’s “6 Cs” and “Growing Success” methodologioes

Edsby is a perfect system to help school boards answer the Ontario Ministry of Education’s call to invest in new practices that integrate pedagogy and technology. Of the “6 Cs” cited by the Ministry, Edsby helps boards achieve objectives for improved character education, communication and collaboration. And it does it not just for high school students, but for elementary, as well. It is an ideal platform from which to implement the province’s Growing Success assessment and reporting model.

Already well known in Ontario K-12 and elsewhere

Edsby is already used in hundreds of schools in Ontario and elsewhere in North America. It’s a robust system loved by hundreds of thousands of teachers, students and parents for its ease of use. Edsby is used everywhere from small, private schools to entire school boards with hundreds of thousands of students, parents and educators.

Edsby is a modern, world-class learning environment for our students, teacher and parents.

The Edsby team’s responsiveness and knowledge of school business and classroom practices were key to our signing off and moving to the next phase of our engagement.

Edsby is giving focus to our teachers, who had been struggling to find other platforms to use for classroom engagement.

Before Edsby, we hadn’t figured out how to get clubs and teams to communicate well. Edsby totally solved this. Group communication is one of my favourite parts of Edsby.
