Pros and Cons

  • It has a home page viewable by students in which there is a Journal space. Teachers can post reminders for example for homework or upcoming events.
  • EDSBY has a place where one can create Folders or Unit Assessments which students can access and if need be print themselves a copy of the assessment. These folders can be used for different unit work or for something that is used throughout the semester. For instance, information on The Writing Process is in a folder, as are major assessments.
  • It's easy to set up the Grade Book because of the automatic choices that are offered for semester work and culminating work. Weights can be edited and categories of assessment can be changed quickly, if needed.
  • If you have a problem, you can ask for help from someone in the school or in the system who knows about the program, or you can send a message to EDSBY, and they are very quick in replying with a fix.

Pros and Cons

  • Intuitive - Parents find it simple to use.
  • Email - because Esdby links to our SIS producing class lists and broadcast emails are a snap.
  • Edsby shows the last time a user logged on. Unfortunately, if someone doesn't log out you have no way of knowing if someone has seen a recent post or is really using Edsby to its potential.

About Edsby

Edsby is a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) for K-12 school districts that uses web and mobile technologies to connect teachers, students, parents and administrators in new ways.

This LMS allows students and parents to check grades, attendance, homework and more from a browser, tablet or mobile phone.

The vendor says what sets this LMS apart from others is that Edsby is designed specifically for the special requirements and needs of K-12. To make district-wide rollouts quick and to minimize ongoing administration, it integrates tightly with existing systems, leveraging data and security policies. And it allows for deep customization by districts—including local terminology, assessment schemes and reporting—even while being cloud-based.
