Project

Cortex Web-Based Platform

Challenge

  • Student information systems are custom-configured for specific academic models, creating a high technological and financial barrier
  • NGLC schools, small school districts, and individual schools can’t afford the technology
  • Schools don’t control data at the local level

Solution

  • Started with the Ed-Fi Data Standard and Ed-Fi Operational Data Store
  • Built Cortex to be the widest possible reusable configuration of a schema and information system alongside a learning management system
  • Added API functionality to enable schools to connect with ed-tech vendors and the Ed-Fi Community

Results

  • Created new use cases for the Ed-Fi Data Standard within next generation schools, small districts and individual schools
  • Cortex is easily adaptable to any academic model
  • Seamless front-end and back-end integration with state education agencies and vendors
