April 22, 2014 – Schoology has again been recognized by the Software Information and Industry Association (SIIA) as a leading product in education. Schoology is a 2014 CODiE finalist in three categories: Best Educational App for a Mobile Device, Best K-12 Course or Learning Management System, and Best K-12 Enterprise Solution—a category Schoology won in 2013.

Schoology manages curriculum, assessments, grading and other classroom management tasks and is also a communication platform for teachers and students in K-12 and higher education. In traditional, online or blended classrooms, Schoology improves learning outcomes not only because of its ability to manage and integrate resources but also in helping teachers evaluate student mastery on educational standards.

“Being named as a finalist in three CODiE categories is rare and we are appreciative of our talented development team and engaged user community who have helped shape Schoology into the product it is today,” said Jeremy Friedman, CEO of Schoology. “Educators and administrators often tell us that Schoology has a significant, positive effect on learning outcomes and we appreciate receiving official recognition from SIIA and the leading experts in education technology.”

CODiE judges praised Schoology as a system that has “lots of analytics embedded and robust reporting.” They lauded Schoology for being easy to use in mobile platforms and having an intuitive user interface combining the strengths of an LMS with a strong “community feel.”
“This year’s finalists are breaking ground with new business models and innovative products. We are pleased to recognize the best in educational technology with these 119 products,” said Karen Billings, vice president of the SIIA Education Division. “I look forward to honoring them all in May at the Education Industry Summit.”

Winners will be announced during a special awards dinner at the nation’s leading education technology conference, the Education Industry Summit, in San Francisco on Tuesday, May 13.
