Edmentum announced today that it is releasing multiple product updates, with a refined user experience for EducationCity and a new learner experience for Plato Courseware, Edmentum Assessments and EdOptions Academy. All programs will be available this summer, with simpler navigation and improved features for the 2014-2015 school year.

Developed to offer a wide variety of methods to teach content required by state and Common Core standards, the new EducationCity user experience features streamlined navigation aimed at providing educators direct access to curriculum objectives. A standards map is also now readily available on the EducationCity homepage, allowing teachers and administrators to easily access curriculum objectives matched to state and Common Core standards by subject and year level. All related teaching tools are directly linked to the standards map as well, improving the process of lesson planning.

For those looking to use the new EducationCity on a mobile device, the program’s multi-sensory content has been accepted for use through the Puffin Academy app for Apple iOS and Google Android devices. The app only connects its users to educational content providers who have applied and are approved to be part of its free resource, giving students the ability to access EducationCity’s platform through a safe browsing environment.

Edmentum will be demonstrating the new solutions at the ASCD 69th Annual Conference and Exhibit Show (booth #1315), March 15-17 in Los Angeles, Calif. For more information on the new EducationCity user experience or the new learner experience for Plato Courseware, Edmentum Assessments and EdOptions Academy, visit edmentum.com.
