The International Center For Supplemental Instruction Announces Education Technology Company TEDU As Exclusive Software Provider
The International Center for Supplemental Instruction and EdTech company join efforts to improve upon existing technology to develop impactful solutions for university staff and students
TEDU, an education technology company with an enterprise platform built to replace outdated, costly, and inefficient academic support infrastructure, has partnered with the International Center for Supplemental Instruction (ICSI). TEDU’s technology offerings will enhance the ICSI’s existing methodology and increase functionality across the organization by continuing to advance its unique, data-focused application designed to offer impactful and cost-effective Supplemental Instruction (SI) program management and facilitation tools for university staff and students.
TEDU’s SI platform automatically collects and generates valuable data analytics providing universities with real-time insights that allow them to fine-tune program and academic methodology. This offers administrators a multitude of benefits, including automated session creation based on student and leader availability and flexible integration through Blackboard, Canvas, and Ellucian systems for seamless installation. Direct integration for automatic records and uploading of ICSI required accreditation data and more is also available.
SI was created by the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1973 as a non-remedial approach to learning that supports the success of students by integrating “what to learn” with “how to learn.” Partnering with TEDU allows for a reduction in many of the challenges faced by staff in facilitating a SI program, while providing more inclusive accessibility and functionality for students. TEDU will also be incorporated in ISCI’s training seminars beginning January 2022.
“By partnering with TEDU we will continue to best support students, administrators, and universities during this pivotal time in education,” says Julie Collins, Executive Director of The International Center for Supplemental Instruction. “One of the unique elements that makes SI effective is that it targets high-risk courses rather than high-risk students. By integrating key data points provided by TEDU technologies, universities will greatly benefit by maximizing their SI budget while ultimately improving student retention.”
With centralized access for students and leaders through TEDU’s custom mobile and web application, administrators are able to optimize SI session availability with integrations through their learning management system class schedule, filter sessions, and delegate in-person or integrated video conferencing, turning an often time consuming and frustrating academic barrier into a seamless, cost efficient, and automated process.
“Learning loss stemming from COVID has been a major pain point for both administrators and students,” says Nicolo Bates, CEO of TEDU. “We developed our software as a response to these frustrations and put forward a solution that mitigates challenges and offers administrators and students a cost-saving, efficient solution. By becoming the ICSI’s exclusive SI program management software, we are able to bring our solution to as many universities as possible around the globe.”
TEDU’s partnership with the ICSI includes exclusive discounts for universities affiliated with the ICSI organization: 15% off the annual license fees for universities who have completed training with the ICSI, and 25% off for universities with ICSI Accreditation.
