What do you like best?
Very easy to use and intuitive user interface. Report cards, alerts, current grade, attendance, are all right there in one location. We can see where a student is, if he or she was absent for a particular class, whether they have a family or medical alert, and how they are doing in class, with the click of a button.
What do you dislike?
No means of displaying community involvement hours. Students find this very frustrating - Edsby gathers info from Maplewood each night, but does not gather community involvement hours, which are mandatory for graduation.
Recommendations to others considering the product
A great tool with centralized info for students, teachers, parents, and school staff/admin.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Easy way to disseminate info to all student, or only a select group. Edsby eliminates version confusion, by having a single source for uploading classwork and other materials. It's also a very convenient means for parents to see their child's progress, with assignments and a summary of each class uploaded each day.
