About us

Who we are

Developed by Ben while teaching (Teach For America), eduCanon improves student outcomes by harnessing the potential of technology. We have been honored as a member of the inaugural class of LearnLaunchX. We won the McGraw-Hill Open Education Resource Prize as a finalist at 2014 Milken-Penn GSE Education Competition and then won the 1776 Global Challenge Cup Competition as the best education company globally.

Technology should empower teachers to maximize instructional, collaborative, and preparation time. Each student has unique learning backgrounds - we give teachers a tool to customize existing online content to the needs of their students and deliver it through a medium that is designed for learning.

Questions

How do you maximize instructional, collaborative, and preparation time?

Customize existing online content to the needs of your students in a medium that is designed for learning. This is the core vision of eduCanon.

What is eduCanon?

eduCanon is an online learning environment to create and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By time-linking activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our real-time monitoring, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

How is eduCanon used?

eduCanon is used in a 1:1 student learning environment. Teachers have used our interface in class as a blended tool, assigned students an eduCanon lesson as homework in a flipped setting, and even asked students to create their own eduCanon lesson as a higher-Bloom's project! eduCanon is flexible to suit the resources and teaching style of your classroom.

What browsers and devices do you support?
