Among the highlights from Judge feedback on ClassLink solutions –
“This is a powerful solution that is teacher and student friendly. The ability to house all Apps and Files needed in one place is such a time-saver for teachers. Administrators are then able to spend money on the right solutions by knowing how often certain Apps are being used and by whom. Very impressive!”
“Overall, this platform is a great, simple method to allow students and staff to house all they need for school in one place.”
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Celebration at the SIIA Annual Conference & CODiE Awards in San Francisco on June 13.
