Platform and Extended Product Portfolio
Our Platform – available “as is” or on a customized, white label basis, in components or as a complete, integrated solution (which we call a “Grid for Learning“) – comprises:
- Our SSO, Provisioning & Data Analytics Platform, a multiple award-winning Platform-as-a-Service technology that enables educational institutions to aggregate, manage and deliver all of their web-enabled applications, tools and content services to their end users by role, providing them with quick and seamless access from a single point-and-click widget on any device and operating system. With an ever growing library of over 300 “Connectors” to the most widely used web-enabled educational services, our Platform is fast becoming the mobile learning solution of choice in education.
Included as integrated components within the Platform are the following:
- Our unique SSO Marketplace
Instant access to a one-stop shop for web-enabled educational applications, content, courses and tools – both free and commercial, local and global – with in-built Single Sign-On, enabling educational institutions not only to try-before-they-buy as well as purchase services, but also to provision those services to any number of end user devices in minutes, and manage and monitor them virtually afterwards.
- ETL Tool
Easily customizable, enterprise level ETL (extract, transform and load) tool to extract data from multiple applications, transform it to fit operational needs and load it into end target Operational Data Store (ODS) or data warehouse. Currently used to extract user data within schools for use by web-enabled application providers whose products are used by those schools.
- Data Analytics Tool
Our Data Analytics tool is designed to extract school, teacher and student performance data from multiple data sources – including from any SIS, data assessment tool as well as performance and demographic data – enabling teachers to immediately pinpoint strengths and weaknesses of each student by standard and develop prescriptive, differentiated treatment necessary to stimulate student achievement. Uniquely, teachers are able to correlate the use by students of any web-enabled application(s) against their performance in summative assessments, enabling a school to measure the value of web-based resources against student achievement.
- Our Digital Content Library, a content aggregation service featuring an integrated single search and retrieval tool which currently contains over 1.5 million learning resources from over 50 global content providers.
- Our Teacher Community Portal, a freely available Web 2.0 community portal for teachers with over 100,000 registered English-speaking members from 25 countries.
The services have been unified into a new, community-led, multi-tenant, enterprise-centric, device-agnostic, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform branded the Global Grid for Learning (GGFL)which houses customized regional, national and state-wide Grids for Learning designed to meet local educational needs.
