Unizin Ecosystem

  • Data and Analytics

    Your data, your way

  • Learning Environment

    Scaled technology for educators and learners

  • Content

    Better materials for learners

Insights into student performance are key to improving retention and graduation rates. Collecting, storing, and accessing data from across institutions in the learning environment is overwhelming. Unizin tools and services capture and organize real-time data for your optimal use.

It's important to have software that is easy for faculty and learners to use. Valuable time is wasted tracking new innovations, testing them, correcting accessibility issues, and training. 

At Unizin, we contract for, develop, integrate, and operate evolving cloud-scale services for your teaching and learning efforts, saving you time and money.

Great content can guide students. But too often, content is expensive, difficult to acquire, and, simply, not good. Unizin tools and services allow faculty to choose high-quality learning materials and deliver them to students faster and more cost-effectively.

June 6, 2017

  Data is becoming the most valuable digital asset, and getting data management right is as critical an issue for universities as other businesses.
