Edji is a Free online reading platform that lets teachers easily deliver any content to their students for live annotation. Students reading in Edji can interact with text, images, and PDF documents by leaving text, emoji, or recorded audio comments. Teachers see those interactions appear live on their screen, which gives teachers instant insight into what their students are thinking, where students are struggling, and which students need help. Edji also gives an exclusive look into where students are reading, letting teachers know instantly if students are achieving learning goals, or if they are missing important information.
