Edoome is a free service that gives teachers a way to communicate and share resources with their students and other teachers. The Chilean-based cofounders -- Leonardo de la Fuente Benitez, Francisco Rubio Illja, and Sebastian Ignacio de la Fuente Benitez -- designed Edoome to be a platform for online assessment, communication, and collaboration, modeled on Edmodo. From the outset, the team built in APIs that were created by the Chilean government. Localization, the founders note, involves more than simply translating content into different languages. Instead entrepreneurs have to be acutely sensitive to the requirements, expectations and norms of different countries.
Teachers use the platform to communicate with students, upload documents for assignments, host discussions, submit grades, and track due dates. By creating specific courses, each with a unique code that lets students join a particular Edoome group, teachers can filter what information they share with each course. For students, Edoome is a place to communicate with their classmates and teachers. Student can use the platform to generate their own discussions, ask questions about assignments or topics, turn in work, and keep track of their courses and extra curricular schedule.
