The EduTech platform, consists of three complementary software-as-a-service solutions that use Microsoft 365 as their foundation:

1. Curricula: A learning management system integrated directly with Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams that deepens collaboration and enables students to learn anytime, anywhere, on any device.

2. Examena: An exam management system that uses facial recognition, AI anti-cheat systems and emergency offline mode along with other advanced technologies to ensure online exams are secure and fair. The solution also streamlines the exam process—from the logistics of arranging a testing venue to automated marking—for both online and physical exams.

3. Vitae: A CRM and communications solution that integrates directly with Microsoft Dynamics 365. Vitae modernizes and streamlines how institutes of higher learning (IHLs) target, communicate, measure and manage the lifelong relationships of prospective students, alumni, donors, commercial partners and other key stakeholders.

“Higher education deserves better technology solutions. Exam solutions are simplistic; learning management solutions lack strong mobile-first, online collaboration functionality; and universities have been forced to patch together numerous disparate marketing tools to execute what should be simple student and alumni communication related tasks,” said Dr. Tianyi Jiang, CEO and co-founder, AvePoint. “EduTech will disrupt this status quo by taking Microsoft 365 and combining it with some of the most advanced technologies all tailored to the needs of higher education. It really is a holistic education technology modernization-as-a-service offering.”

“We believe the higher education model will change more in the next 5 years than it has in the last 100 years. COVID-19 has been a shock to a system that hasn’t quite evolved from the physical classroom model of teaching and learning,” said Annie Koh, Professor Emeritus of Finance at Singapore Management University and AvePoint EduTech Senior industry Advisor. “Even after the pandemic has passed, the institutes of higher learning that understand the future is in developing a modular, learn everywhere environment with rich online collaboration – they are the ones that will thrive.”

“AvePoint is delivering transformation work in education technology. Their solution is an example of how learning can be enriched by shifting students, faculty and administrators from multiple, siloed legacy systems to a next-generation learning management system built on Microsoft 365,” said Gerald Leo, Chief Partner Officer, Microsoft Singapore. “It can further serve as an industry IP that can be duplicated within the education sector and further expanded for use in other vertical industries.”
