Follett Software Company announced that Aspen, its Student Information System (SIS), now serves as a fully-integrated instructional, curriculum and learning management system, allowing for access to digital content, online learning and collaboration tools in one product.
Aspen includes full special education capabilities, health office functionality and professional development tracking in addition to traditional student information.
Aspen’s newest chapter – the addition of curriculum and learning – brings paid digital content, free and open-source content, and locally created resources together in a single system. All of these standards-aligned resources are usable by teachers, students and parents to augment lessons and extend the classroom to anytime, anywhere learning.
Aspen Curriculum & Learning will help districts connect their standards-aligned curriculum maps to their instructional resources, and distribute them to all teachers and onto the student/parent portals.
Teachers will be able to expand their existing class web pages so all the class activities, including assignments and resources are available to the family via the student/parent portal. Students can download an assignment, complete it online and submit it to the teacher. Other assignments, such as online quizzes or tests, can be auto-graded and the grades sent to the Gradebook for real-time results.
Existing Aspen customers can simply “add on” the Curriculum & Learning feature to their subscription.
