DALLAS, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager/Sopris Learning, a business unit of Cambium Learning Group (NASDAQ: ABCD), announced today the release of Edplicity, a cloud-based content-sharing and collaboration platform that allows teachers to digitally deliver reading instruction and collaborate across schools and districts.
Edplicity is an all-in-one solution for content storage and collaboration that provides teachers the ability to deliver instruction in an online format using the evidence-based reading programs Voyager Passport® and Passport Reading Journeys®. As an advanced cloud-based solution, this digital platform creates an interactive online learning community where teachers can assign student work, track participation and performance, provide targeted feedback, collaborate with other teachers and share best practices, all online and in real-time.
