Learn Why Edusight is an awesome Portfolio Tool For Documenting Student Achievement | @Edusight

Jeff sits down with Vikram to discuss why Edusight is simply the best standards-based portfolio to help teachers document student achievement.

About Edusight

Edusight is a standards-based portfolio to help teachers document student learning with grades, notes, photos, and audio/video comments.

Use Edusight on the web to manage assessment, grading, and standards seamlessly (includes Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards, and state standards).

Edusight Notes for iOS lets you capture learning evidence in the classroom as it happens – quickly take a note or record a video of students as they learn, tag standards, and instantly add it to their portfolios!

All of this evidence comes together in beautiful, easy-to-digest student portfolios that can be shared with students, parents, and administrators in real time so everyone is engaged in improving student learning.

Why Edusight?

Edusight is used by over 140 schools and districts across North America, including schools in New York, Chicago, California, and Ontario.

Edusight is available for individual teachers for free – always. For schools and districts who wish to manage Edusight at an organizational level, we offer premium subscriptions which include features like SIS integration, reporting modules, teacher collaboration, and administrator dashboards.
