Welcome to Edline

The Edline Difference - Edline's revolutionary approach helps students thrive.

Blackboard xpLor

Rich educational materials and assessments, seamlessly integrated

Blackboard xpLor integrates with your Edline class pages to transform traditional teaching and learning by providing access to all of the information your teachers want online in one, easy-to-use content repository. Much more than just digital content in the cloud, it stores rich educational materials (including assessments), is an authoring environment with familiar content creation tools, enables sharing and discovery of educational content, and provides a copyright management system. With xpLor, all this content is delivered through your Edline class websites for a seamless experience for students.

The easier it is to find the standards-aligned content you need, the more time and energy you can spend teaching.

 
For the first time, the universe of learning content can be explored within one place
 
  • Discover content from all over the globe—Through integration with Blackboard xpLor, we provide rich global search capabilities that can find content shared globally with advanced filtering functions by keyword, contributor or subject

  • Create modern, content-rich course materials—With flexible and collaborative authoring, you can create your own learning materials and share it with everyone or just your district. Sharing is simple with a rich set of permission to control how content is shared, used and altered.

  • Easily find what you need—Through personalized views, xpLor makes it easy to tune out content that is not important to you, so you can focus on items in your subject, aligned with the standards you need or authored by people you follow.

  • Stay aligned with standards—We make it easy to keep up with Common Core or other state-mandated curriculum standards

  • Advanced assessment tools—Adminster graded discussions, quizzes, and assignments online with features like question randomization, time limits and grade overviews in your Edline.  


 

K-12 Central, mobile made easy!

Finally, a mobile solution that is flexible enough to handle the unique challenges of K-12.

K-12 Central is a branded mobile app that goes hand in hand with Edline. This powerful duo brings you the core, centralized Edline platform plus the custom mobile app, allowing all members of the K-12 community to collaborate and communicate effectively within your school-branded environment.

E-rate

Website Hosting and the Federal E-rate Program

Edline’s Learning Community Management System offers many products and services for K-12 school districts and their learning communities. However, only Edline’s website hosting service is eligible for federal funding discounts through the E-rate program. Website hosting from Edline is 95% eligible for E-rate funding (before calculation of the non-discounted portion). The following provides highlights of what E-rate will, and will not, fund for K-12 websites.

Overall, the E-rate program funds and provide discounts for K-12 school websites and library websites, including:

  • Website administration tools to create and maintain your website
  • Interactive communication features on your website such as blogs, discussion boards
  • Webmail
  • Features on your website that facilitate real-time interactive communications
  • Instant messaging and chat

Please note that not all content, services, systems and features that can be used with a website are eligible for E-rate funding. For example, the following are ineligible:

  • Costs for content created by third-party vendors
  • Costs for vendor design services
  • Charges for distance learning or video conferencing utilities such as web meetings
  • Charges for student information systems, grade management systems, and similar products

If you choose Edline as your website hosting provider, the following products and services from Edline can be purchased separately and used in conjunction with your website, but they are not eligible for E-rate funding:

  • QuickStart Custom Graphic Design Services
  • Interactive Classroom (quiz tools, interactive assignments, etc.)
  • Notification Systems (phone/SMS/text) for sending emergency and other communications
  • Edline’s Award-Winning Gradebooks
  • Forms & Surveys
  • LiveLink

This brief overview of federal E-rate funding for website hosting is not comprehensive. The lists above of eligible and ineligible website hosting services, products and features are by no means exhaustive. Schools and school districts choosing to apply for E-rate funding for website hosting must select a service provider after conducting a fair and open competitive bidding process, in compliance with state and local procurement guidelines and federal regulations. For a complete description of eligible and ineligible website hosting services, and to learn more about the E-rate program, the application process, and the rules and regulations, please visit www.USAC.org/sl.

Welcome to Edline, the leading provider of K-12 Web-based communication solutions.

As the industry leader for over a decade, we help over 20,000 schools and tens of millions of families succeed using innovative technologies that support learning and enable meaningful online communication and collaboration among all members of the education community.

We recently acquired SchoolWorld, SchoolFusion and SchoolCenter—three premier providers of online solutions for learning communities, as well as TeleParent—a leading provider of notification solutions. This dynamic alliance features the best of all worlds—exceptional customer support, innovative product technologies and development, and scalable system architecture—resulting in the only K-12 website platform you’ll ever need.

By bringing 21st century technology and thought leadership to learning environments everywhere, we are enabling schools and districts of all sizes to achieve real results in education. For example, over 96% of parents in Florida’s Brevard County School District believe that they are in a better position to help students thrive as a result of the district’s implementation of our LCMS technologies.

With offices across the U.S., our team of passionate professionals work together to bring K-12 schools the best possible website and communication solutions. Schedule a demo today to learn more about the new Edline!

The Edline Difference

We define success as the result of a solution that truly meets the website and communication needs of every K-12 stakeholder. With that in mind, we built the new Learning Community Management System (LCMS) from Edline—the first truly integrated communication platform for K-12 school districts.

Here is how we differ from other solutions:

  • District, school and classroom websites can extend to include email, text and phone notification for routine announcements or emergencies
  • Classroom and teacher webpages can expand into a comprehensive suite of instructional tools and LMS capabilities including quizzes, assessments, homework drop boxes, lesson planners, gradebooks and Web 2.0 collaboration tools
  • Schools and district have unprecedented control over their websites and content through our revolutionary design and page editors

More schools choose Edline as their website provider than any other solution on the market. This means tens of thousands of schools, over half a million teachers and millions of families rely on Edline every single day for sharing and accessing critical information.

Our client success speaks for itself!

  • In a Wall Street Journal article, a student in Maryland’s Montgomery County Schools credited Edline for helping him graduate and making it into college
  • An Illinois “Superintendent of the year” praised Edline for bringing her community together and playing a key role in the significant increase in the district’s AYP in an otherwise struggling community
  • The Bangor Township Superintendent appreciates the ability to delegate sections of the website to the appropriate person for updates and management, so that content is always fresh and users keep coming back

Through our industry leading solutions, we are dedicated to helping schools raise student achievement by engaging students, increasing teacher productivity, saving money for schools and districts, and making it easy and exciting for parents to play an active role in their child’s education.

Edline provides scalable, reliable and hassle-free web hosting for all our customers.

 

  • Your website. Our cloud.

    Edline is a completely hosted solution so there's no costly hardware to buy or maintain and no software to configure or install.

  • Proven scale.

    Edline serves billions of page views for more than 20,000 schools. We can handle the requirements of even the largest districts with ease.

  • Peace of mind.

    With everything taken care of for you, there's no need to worry about capacity, security, software and hardware upgrades, backups, internet connectivity, power - or any of the myriad challenging activities necessary for a secure and highly available computing environment.

  • Easy and inexpensive.

    Edline hosting services eliminate the cost and burden of purchasing and maintaining hardware and software. Updates and upgrades are completely transparent and happen without any service interruption. If you purchase new services, they'll get turned on instantly without you having to lift a finger.

  • Fast access.

    Your community should not have to wait for important information. Edline uses the best and fastest carrier-level network infrastructure available, providing lightning-fast access from anywhere in the world.

  • Security.

    Edline uses state-of-the-art security measures and industry best practices. Similar to leading banks and brokerage firms, web traffic is protected with 128-bit encryption and secure socket layer (SSL). All private data is encrypted, and all systems are protected by leading-edge firewalls, intrusion detection systems, comprehensive real-time threat protection systems, and 24x7 monitoring. Hardware is maintained in secure unmarked facilities protected by advanced biometric security systems and measures including 24-hour manned security, vehicle blockades, access-controlled steel cages, and video surveillance.
     

  • Mission-critical, enterprise grade facilities.

    The Edline cloud is built on the most advanced physical infrastructure available. Data centers have raised floors, high-volume, zoned temperature and humidity control systems, redundant (N+1) HVAC units, seismically engineered racks anchored to concrete slabs, and advanced fire suppression that utilizes state-of-the-art "sniffer" systems, head detection, and dry-pipe sprinkler systems. Multiple N+1 redundant uninterruptible power sources (UPS) eliminate fluctuations and provide clean, continuous power, while multiple high-capacity redundant backup generators guarantee power availability even during extended metro area outages. All systems are monitored 24x7.
     

  • Reliability and redundancy.

    Edline's cloud is designed for extremely-high-availability. Redundant components at all levels eliminate all single-points-of-failure, and redundant extremely-high-bandwidth networks ensure reliability. Redundant servers and fail-over systems protect the cloud against multiple server failures, and multiple copies of all data are written simultaneously in real time to prevent data loss. Archived backups are created nightly, and multiple geographic locations protect against catastrophic events.

Integration

Edline is a single communications platform that is connected to all your important information.

To ensure that information from a variety of external or third party systems can be imported and accessible from a single interface point, our team of software engineers can create connections that keep information up-to-date and consistent across all your systems.

In fact - Edline works with over 100 leading SIS providers.

From SIS to Facility Management – Keeping It All Consistent

We understand that your school or district may have third-party systems that need to be integrated with your new Edline solution so parents, students and educators only need to go to one place for everything that’s important to them.

Whether you want to import personal student data from your SIS to Edline’s LCMS or integrate your facilities management scheduling with our robust calendar systems, Edline’s team of talented software engineers can work with you to create secure connections. While not all systems are compatible, we will explore all possibilities to try and connect your information systems in the most centralized manner.

Single Sign-On: Integration through Interface

No matter what your integration needs represent, we will ensure that the end result is a seamless interface that connects all information while maintaining a consistent look and feel and navigation experience for users. We don’t want you or your community to leave the comfort of Edline’s friendly and dynamic user interface.

Partnerships that Build Bridges

Edline customers benefit from value-enhancing partnerships with companies such as SchoolDude that ensure ‘out of the box’ integration with industry-leading products. While our custom integration team works hard to create and work with software APIs that promote centralized data, we also pursue industry partnerships that make this process much easier.

When you’re ready to integrate your third party systems with your new Edline solution, just ask us how to get started!
