Schoolbox and Education in Motion group enter into strategic partnership

After an extensive review process, Schoolbox has been chosen as both the learning management system (LMS) and community portal solutions for Education in Motion (EiM) – a global leader in innovative education.

By implementing Schoolbox as one part of a wider programme of digital transformation, EiM continues to build on their pioneering spirit and student-first approach to education, while reaffirming Schoolbox as a world-class education technology solution.

EiM’s Group Head of Data and Information Services Mark Haskins said about the selection:

“Based on internal feedback, we wanted to improve the digital experience for our students, parents and staff by taking control of the number of platforms users have to engage with, or at least reducing the burden of navigating and authenticating multiple systems.” 

“We wanted a robust, secure, and high performance tool that could be customised to suit a range of users from young children to adults. It should support the wide range of pedagogical requirements that our schools have, including enhancing student agency, recursive feedback, and other Digital Affordances.”

“It was felt that Schoolbox would offer us a unified digital experience with secure and efficient data integration and single sign ons creating the perfect platform to support the learning journey of our students globally.”

Schoolbox CEO Grant van der Kruk said about the partnership, “We are thrilled to be selected as a strategic partner to support EiM’s digital transformation. We’re very impressed with Mark and his team’s focus on exacting requirements and involving so many key stakeholders during the process.” 

“Understanding EiM’s unique requirements of a world-class LMS, combined with a first class community portal experience, we believed throughout the process that Schoolbox was the right solution for their needs. I want to thank Mark Haskins and his team, including Robert Gogin – Group Academic System Manager – for their professional and strategic approach during the 18 month long process, as well as the team at Schoolbox for their focus and professionalism.” 

EiM will strategically stagger the roll out and adoption over a number of stages, starting with the Schoolbox Community platform. This will bring immediate improvements to the parent experience by giving parents control of the news and communication they receive, and the ability to access all relevant information about their children through a single interface. Once bedded down, schools will then progress to the full suite under the Schoolbox Learning product. 

The Schoolbox team will be onsite in Malaysia for the FOBISIA Leadership Conference from 3-5 November 2023, a great opportunity for member schools to find out more.
