Newly Launched Ed-Fi Academy Offers Comprehensive Materials to Guide Ed-Fi Implementations

October 11, 2018 – AUSTIN, Texas – Ed-Fi Alliance, LLC, dedicated to boosting student achievement by empowering educators with actionable data, today announced the launch of Ed-Fi Academy, an on-demand training resource designed to guide both technical and non-technical leaders through an effective Ed-Fi implementation.

Ed-Fi Academy is available today at www.ed-fi.org/academy.

“As the Ed-Fi Technology Suite has matured and evolved we continued to hear from our community that they wanted a single reference point for training materials and implementation information. So today, we are very proud to announce the launch of Ed-Fi Academy,” said Chris Moffatt, vice president, Technology, Ed-Fi Alliance.  “Our intention is that Ed-Fi Academy will provide valuable information and training to our users now and into the future as we continue to add and update the training resources.”

Training materials within Ed-Fi Academy are organized to help three audience types; Local Education Agencies, State Education Agencies and Technology Providers. As each of these key audiences uses the Ed-Fi Technology Suite for different use cases the materials are designed to support each of these groups with their specific training needs.

“We have been implementing Ed-Fi for several years, there are continuous improvements and changes being made.  We have attended the Ed-Fi Summit & Bootcamp in the past and have gotten valuable hands-on training and support. The Ed-Fi Academy is an extension of those in-person experiences with the benefit of being on-demand, guided and in multi-media formats,” said Ana Quintana, partner, UPD Consulting. “Both myself and my team plan to access this information frequently as a reference point throughout the year and it will be especially useful as we train new users on our Ed-Fi implementation. It is going to be a great resource for all my clients and the Ed-Fi community”

Materials are in several formats; PDFs, links, videos, webinars and white papers, all accessible on-demand. Further, Ed-Fi will be adding more training topics and resources as we hear from the Ed-Fi Community on what information will be most helpful.
