Instructure to Acquire EesySoft to Help Educators and Students Improve Adoption of Educational Technology
Instructure has entered into an agreement to acquire EesySoft, a technology adoption vendor. EesySoft, which will be rebranded as “Impact by Instructure,” will continue to help institutions improve adoption of education technologies as well as evaluate the impact they have on student engagement.
Impact provides a guided user experience for education technology platforms, insightful dashboards and dynamic reporting, as well as customized in-app messaging, thus empowering institutions to focus more on teaching and learning, and less on traversing new technologies.
“As we transition into a post-pandemic era, districts and schools are under increased pressure to measure the ROI and positive impact of their technology investments,” said Steve Daly, CEO of Instructure. “We believe hybrid learning is here to stay, and whether it’s Instructure tools or other industry education technologies, Impact by Instructure is designed to help all education technology solutions demonstrate their usefulness in school communities.”
