2. EDTech Award for Cool Tool 2022 New Product or Service
Exams for Zoom won the Award for Cool Tool 2022 in the New Product or Service category (2018 or later) and was a finalist in the Testing and Assessment Solution category. Exams for Zoom is a part of EDT&Ventures, which was created to address specific market needs.
With the COVID pandemic came shutdowns and school closures and the overnight shift to online and remote classes. With that change, there were many emerging needs of teachers, students, and institutions that were not being met. An assessment solution was needed for all three. In the assessment space, the options were scarce. Educators were forced to adapt video-conferencing platforms to the classroom, and there were big challenges. For teachers, the challenge was how to effectively administer an exam in a secure, safe, and easy-to-use environment. Students needed a distraction-free, user-friendly and familiar environment where they could perform at their best in an exam. Institutions looked for a flexible, secure, and non-Orwellian solution that also met the needs of their staff and students. These are the problems Exams for Zoom has set out to address.
Exams for Zoom has a small team of dedicated and passionate people who not only have the short-term objectives of the E4Z tool in mind but are conscious and aware of the bigger, existential changes happening in the assessment space. Exams for Zoom is at the forefront of changes brought about by AI, hybrid settings, MOOCs, online certifications, and more. And just like the tool we’ve built, we’re monitoring and analyzing the environment to help provide the best possible results.
