Educational Technology

We help students make informed choices about their curriculum, succeed in their classes, and translate their competencies into their career.

The educational technology we develop is built collaboratively with instructional teams to solve big problems faced by students and faculty. Our software is used by faculty across the University of Michigan and has reached over 98% of current students. It’s also used at other institutions around the the world.

If you’re interested in using any of our tools, please contact [email protected].

We build software that aims to:

  • improve student outcomes
  • scale up innovative teaching solutions
  • combine technology with learning analytics
  • contribute to a culture of innovation in education
  • shape the future of teaching and learning
