CLEVELAND , April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — eGenio® Education Solutions introduces eGenio’s Integrated Learning Environment™, a cloud-based platform that integrates learning, student information, digital resources, and other data systems to enrich the learning process and improve learning management, outcomes and accountability.
“Our Integrated Learning Environment is a platform for K12 classrooms that links teachers, students, administrators, and parents, and that is more comprehensive, feature-rich and easy to learn and easy to use,” says Donald Greenberg , eGenio president and chief operating officer.
“It puts the power to meet the aggressive goals of the National Education Plan into the hands of schools, helping teachers use technology to easily create engaging, multimedia-rich assignments that meet standards and incorporate 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. This is the tool districts have needed to unleash their ability to leverage technology to foster individualized, 21st century learning.”
Resource Center Aligned to State and Federal Standards
eGenio's unparalleled Resource Center contains high quality content all searchable by keyword or type. Content created by individual teachers or school districts can be uploaded and stored. The Resource Center features a:
- State Standards Tab for accessing, by state, subject and grade level, approved content aligned with each state's standards, with access to Weekly Reader, Britannica online and the Electronic Testing Service database with 64,000 questions for teacher use.
- Common Core Standards Tab for accessing content aligned with the National Common Core standards being adopted by many states.
- Resource Use Analytics Tab for rating content and accessing content ratings from other educators to help find proven resources.
eGenio lets teachers and administrators create standards-based and student comparison reports in real time.
Personalized for Teachers and Students
With the eGenio platform, learning can be extended beyond the classroom through distance learning after school hours and during snow and sick days, so missed class time does not have to mean missed learning opportunities.
The drag-and-drop interface, with specialized pages for administrators, teachers, students and parents, is simple to master. All pages are personalized. The teacher dashboard, for example, contains space for current announcements, class activities, class assignments, and online class conversation threads. School district-based email is accessible without leaving the eGenio portal, which also can be integrated with other programs including today's most popular grade book systems, so all management tools are just one click away.
eGenio's Integrated Learning Environment is vendor-hosted and secure, so no additional data storage costs are incurred by districts. Onsite teacher training plus live customer support is included and supplemented with an easy to use Help Center complete with embedded tutorial podcasts.
Headquartered in Cleveland , eGenio Education Solutions (www.egenio.com) provides an Integrated Learning Environment™ that engages students and empowers educators with the tools and resources needed to teach 21st century skills.
