Through Backpack’s experience, combined with complaints of many other students and teachers in the educational system, the Team noticed an intense dissatisfaction of the current learning management systems being used today. Backpack’s solution to this is an educational learning platform for students, educators and schools that will aid in streamlining their communication and help them collaborate in a more efficient manner. By using features found in social networks, Backpack can simplify this online experience and provide a safe, secure and simple platform for all educational experiences including grades, attendance, assignments, messaging, motivation and an overall digital representation of learning.
