PROVIDING THE USER WITH UNIQUE AND ACCURATE RESEARCH
ENHANCING STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
Innovative Solutions in Education Technology
When a student asks an intricate question the search results are often unsatisfactory. As a result the market for complex queries remains under served – and the demand for accurate resource discovery is massive.
The solution for education research
The edForma portal – unlike any other search technology – identifies the documents that made the most valuable contributions to the query – because those are the documents most relevant to the user.
The edForma portal will transform the way students and teachers utilize learning resources on a global basis.
Many studies have found that while students are more competent users of technology than ever before, there is an over reliance on popular search engines and portals for education research.
Faced with tens or even hundreds of thousands of documents returned by existing search tools in response to a complex education query, the reader is simply overwhelmed. No education user can be expected to read every document returned with the results of current search tools.
Utilizing the edForma technology we are able to provide the education user with unique and accurate search capabilities.
With edForma users have the opportunity to generate more innovative and creative research than ever before, empowering students to harness all the research opportunities at their fingertips.
