Edsby for students

Edsby for students

Edsby energizes student learning and supports student success.

Edsby pulls it all together, every day

Edsby knows what classes, assignments and homework students have got. It knows their timetable and where they need to be through the day. It helps them track and manage their activities by showing all the events and classes scheduled for today, as well as important upcoming events and assignments. It’ll even remind students when they need to do things.

Edsby helps in every class

Every class students take has a social media-like feed where they can ask questions and interact with the teacher and other students. It’s where the teacher posts assignments. Students can ask questions or help each other. Every Edsby class also has a calendar that shows all the events coming up in that class. As the teacher creates assignments and tests, Edsby puts them in the class calendar and they also show up on the calendar on students’ home screens.

Edsby stores important files

When teachers upload files and videos in a class, Edsby puts them in the class library for easy access. So the next time it’s the night before the exam and a student needs to find the study guide they lost, it’ll be Edsby to the rescue.

Online portfolios

Student-curated portfolios document learning journeys. Students can demonstrate their voice and learning ownership with pictures, videos or other uploads.

I like the fact I was able to get all my assignments, including work I was missing. And that I was able to view grades class by class.

Edsby shows course plans and grades

Students can see the units and lessons they’ll be taking if their teacher uses the Edsby course planner. It shows which units are currently being taught and which have been completed, and what grades were assigned. Teachers can place web links, study guides and videos in the course plan, so help is always at hand.

Groups for clubs and teams

Glee club? Football team? They can have their own Edsby groups. With unread tracking, it’s always clear if something new is posted. Edsby groups also let members upload and manage files. And when events are created in a group, Edsby automatically adds them to the calendar of every member of the group.

Smartphones & tablets, too

Edsby works best on web browsers. But mobile versions of Edsby are available for smartphone and tablet devices. Edsby is cross-platform, with support for iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad and Android.

And … Edsby is fun

Edsby lets students connect with classmates, teachers and course material 24/7 in a way that many of them come to love. Students spend a surprising amount of time in Edsby. (Don’t believe us? Check out this vid that students at an Edsby school made.)

Edsby helps me track what I have to work on.
