Cambridge University Press and Edmodo announced a partnership that will exclusively integrate Cambridge’s GCSE content in Edmodo’s assessment tool Snapshot. The partnership will initially focus on schools in England.
Snapshot was launched in June 2014 to enable teachers to align classroom curricula with the new U.S. common core standards and assess student performance on a regular basis. Cambridge’s GCSE content will cover the core subjects of Mathematics, English Language, English Literature, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Combined Science & Computing.
“The new UK schools curriculum will see a significant increase in the use of digital learning in UK classrooms so the appetite for high-quality resources and accessible digital tools will continue to grow,”
said Peter Phillips, Chief Executive of Cambridge University Press.
Founded in 2008, Edmodo is used by over 46 million teachers, students and parents across 190 countries and has raised nearly $90 million in venture capital. In December the company promoted its CTO Vibhu Mittal to CEO with Edmodo co-founder Crystal Hutter taking the role as President, focusing on strategic initiatives and partnership efforts.
Mittal joined the team in March 2013 when his startup Root-1, an educational apps platform, was acquired by Edmodo.
