SunGard K-12 Education Selects Schoology As Premier Learning Management Solutions Provider

Software and technical services provider SunGard K-12 Education has selected Schoology as its premier learning management solutions provider. The alliance pairs eSchoolPLUS’s Teacher Access Center with Schoology’s platform for managing instruction, communication, and collaboration. The integration between the two software solutions gives teachers the ability to manage their entire classroom and student learning experience in one tool—from attendance and intervention management to learning resources, online engagement, and virtual classrooms.

SunGard K-12 Education’s eSchoolPLUS student information system helps educational stakeholders—students, school administrators, district staff, teachers, parents, and board members—manage and access the summary and detailed student information they need.

At the heart of eSchoolPLUS is the Teacher Access Center classroom management system. Teacher Access Center helps boost teacher productivity by putting information and processes they need at their fingertips. From their home page, teachers can take attendance, address a discipline issue, and communicate efficiently with students, parents, and school administrators. The software’s robust gradebook, which accommodates both standards and non-standards-based grading, helps them manage student grades and identify trends that support student achievement.

Schoology provides a media-rich, collaborative learning environment in which educators can differentiate instruction, individually pace students, and implement group-based learning. The platform’s intuitive interface engages students in online discussions, helps improve communication, and provides a means to assess comprehension in real time. Schoology also enables teachers and administrators to assess mastery of state standards and custom learning objectives. Native mobile apps for the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch; Android device; or Kindle Fire keep students and educators connected and engaged in learning long after class ends.
