ImpactEd

Learning Management System​

The Reason

This project is deeply personal to me because of how it has affected my own life. I have six younger siblings, four of whom are of school age. When the pandemic hit, all of them made the switch to remote learning very suddenly, and their transition was rough to put it simply. Being in a parental role had its own set of challenges when it came to helping the younger children understand their online learning, as both of my parents and I quickly discovered. The problems that I faced in my own home were not unique: countless people across the nation were feeling the effects of an insufficient learning environment. 

The advent of the coronavirus pandemic and forced transition into online schooling only served to highlight a glaring problem in the education industry. The current learning management systems, or LMS’s, were failing to provide an equitable learning environment, catering to a successful few while leaving others in less than favorable conditions for success. I did not want my family and friends to have to continue working in an environment that did not understand their individual needs, and the more I looked, the more problems I found. I decided that it was time for a change; it was time to make an impact.

Competency Based Learning

Individualized Education

Based on national academic standards and terminology developed by the US Department of Education, ImpactEd’s competency system gives every student a quantified display of their academic skills, from what they excel at the most to what they need to devote the most attention to – in every class. 

Social
Influence

The competency algorithm can also be used to foster their individual social skills using ImpactEd’s task-based system! By utilizing data from different types of coursework, quantified and actionable data can be directly supplied to students and their teachers, ensuring that all students are given the support they need in the areas they need it.

Advanced Accessibility

Comes in All Sizes

Many learning environments today grant students a one-size-fits-all blueprint for success. Unfortunately, if you do not fit that blueprint, it is very difficult to succeed. That is why ImpactEd caters to every type of individual need, whether it be emotional, physical, mental, or other. In doing so, it provides students with the ability to have an impact on their own education.

Different Tools for Success

ImpactEd recognizes that different people need different tools to succeed. Care is taken throughout the system to build an experience that serves the needs of al user archetypes, giving students an environment that treats them like individual human beings with unique needs.

Student View

Custom Interface

The student portal promotes a joyful learning experience. Navigating this site is not only easy, but enjoyable, with animated menus, customizable widgets, and drop-downs guiding the user through their journey. The entire system is vibrant and full of life.

Simple Organization

The days of searching for assignments, endless loading screens, and confusing layouts have worn thin on students. With ImpactEd, everything is possible with a maximum of  two loading screens from anywhere on the site, providing a comprehensive and direct student experience.

Instructor View

Robust Experience

The teacher portal is modeled after the student portal, allowing teachers to see exactly what their students see at all times. The confusion and clumsiness of other systems is eliminated in ImpactEd, which enables real-time edits and data transfer.

Intuitive Design

Tedious assignment and post creation is streamlined in ImpactEd, which allows you to build widgets directly while seeing exactly how they will appear to students. Files and materials can be linked smoothly within creation and are automatically sorted, ridding you and your students of any confusion. 

Admin View

Analyzing
Admin

ImpactEd’s institutional approach allows schools and colleges alike to personalize their information while providing a simple and intuitive framework for organization. The Sector page allows Admin to collect data about their school as a whole that has never been introduced in any other system. ImpactEd grants users superior understanding of their student’s performance with graphs and charts that show the progression of the entire school.
