Here’s a Cool Tool Award Winner from a company that strives to make teaching and learning easier for everyone.
With their solution, Jupiter iO, students are able to learn more and learn faster with interactive, engaging content, and stay on top of their homework, and parents can stay informed and involved in their children’s education. Teachers and administrators can monitor student progress, collaborate on curriculum, flip the classroom, and spend less time on grading and data entry, thereby helping their school operate at a more efficient level.
Jupiter Ed was founded in 2004 by David Hundsness, a former middle/high school teacher in Silicon Valley. As a teacher, he was an early adopter of electronic grade books since 1992, but over the years he found all the software applications were still clunky and tedious. So in the summer of 2004 he decided to program his own. Within a four-year span, he expanded the Gradebook to include the SIS, LMS, and Analytics, far outpacing competitors.
For over 14 years, Jupiter Ed has proven to be an innovation leader in education technology. All their applications are developed in-house, not acquired from third-parties, making Jupiter iO possibly one of the only fully integrated solutions on the market. They currently serve private, charter, and public schools in all 50 states, totaling a whopping 3.9 million students. Learn more.
