Happy Graduation Day for Imagine K12

The third cohort of companies nurtured by the loving embrace of the Imagine K12 accelerator program have graduated today. EdSurge’s Betsy Corcoran is keeping an eye on the all-growed-up companies, ready to face the world as proud graduates.

They’ve started their coverage with two companies, EdCanvas and Secur.ly. Let’s take a look!

EdCanvas is a teacher’s community, a virtual place where they can collect and foster learning materials and share them with fellow colleagues. Anyone who subscribes to the service can create

a “canvas” on which they can collect materials. It’s a browser-based experience that is definitely after the Pinterest approach, and a quick visit to the website shows an ever-changing, real-time collection of attractive content.

It’s encouraging to watch folks use the platform, and makes me wonder if EdCanvas would choose to slow down the real-time updating once more people use it. If you’ve got thousands of users updating at the same time, it might get a little blurry on that page! I’m sure they’ve got a plan to accommodate their own popularity, though.

Since the company debuted its service late last month, it has gained more than 1,300 users. The business model will “always be free for teachers,” says the company’s founders.

Secur.ly is a cloud-based technology geared toward school systems. It’s meant to filter web traffic with ease and can even be extended to accommodate mobile devices that students bring home. Don’t worry, it’s not as Orwellian as you think. Parents and educators are always working hard—or at least they should be—to shield kids from the unpleasant and alarming content found on the internet, and this is a high-tech security measure that schools may find appealing. According to co-founder Bharath Madhusudan, “The same problem parents have at home is amplified in the schools.”

The service is licensed to schools and requires no software to use, since it exists on the cloud. School IT admins are able to adjust the policies, offering different levels of privileges for all users. Parents can choose to extend the security onto their child’s mobile device so that the precautions continue to be in place even after the school day is over.

Secure.ly has been tested in approximately 20 schools and is currently in place in at least five charter schools.

The service costs $1,500 per year per school. I’m not IT expert, but that sounds affordable to me.

    Thanks Brent! We’re thrilled to have gone through the Imagine K12 program. Such a great experience for edtech entrepreneurs.

    Students can also create canvases now so we’re excited to see the creative canvases that students make.

    Securly is providing such a great service for both schools and parents and they are awesome two founders!

    Looking forward to the coverage of the other companies!

    Cheers,
    Amy Lin
