Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) January 16, 2012
My Big Campus from Lightspeed Systems has been recognized with two awards: the Tech & Learning Award of Excellence and the eSchool Media Readers' Choice Award.
My Big Campus is a safe social learning platform, created to provide schools with an engaging online environment. This collaborative tool promotes blended learning within a secure, monitored environment—balancing the educational use of Web 2.0 tools with network and student safety. It includes an educational resource library, a collaboration platform, and classroom management tools.
The Tech & Learning award is bestowed upon products that meet the rigorous testing and review of a panel of judges. The eSchool Media award is given to products that the readers themselves nominate and vote upon.
"Schools need an easy-to-use and safe way to allow students to collaborate and communicate; to develop positive digital citizenry skills; to store and retrieve files; to assign and submit assignments; to access online resources; and to keep students engaged in learning anytime, anywhere," shares Amy Bennett, VP, Marketing for Lightspeed Systems. "My Big Campus gives them these capabilities, and we're honored to have it recognized by both the judges and the end users."
According to Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media’s Tech & Learning Group, in a recent news release, “Our readers are looking for rigorous edtech products that improve teaching and learning, inspire teachers and students, as well as meet today’s assessment and standards requirements. This year’s Award of Excellence judges put over 160 products to the test, and chose only those that met these criteria. These companies can be proud that their products were selected by this prestigious team of judges.”
My Big Campus is available as a free standalone solution to educators, or integrated with the Lightspeed Systems Web Filter through the complete Campus Collaboration Bundle.
A free app for iOS and Android devices is also available to make anytime, anywhere learning easier.
