Unizin is a consortium of like-minded institutions facilitating the transition toward collaborative digital education. We help universities provide teachers and students with more digital learning options. Our dynamic ecosystem provides analytics that can be used to track progress and improve student outcomes.
Unizin’s ecosystem consists of a set of dynamically evolving software that supports digital teaching and learning.
By loosely coupling service providers, Unizin supports quick transitions can be made to the best-in-class tools and services. Our ecosystem integrates key tools for a seamless faculty and student user experience. It’s always evolving to align with our members’ digital learning needs.
As a consortium we leverage the knowledge and experience of our member schools by sharing best practices and content from our prestigious universities. Faculty can discover and share new content as well as leading practices.
Unizin provides data to universities surrounding every aspect of the ecosystem. Through many vendors, institutions have little or no access to their data. With reports and intuitive dashboards, researchers, advisors, faculty and students can take research to the next level and help students succeed.
What people are saying
“Unizin is both a consortium and an infrastructure ecosystem. It draws on the intellectual and financial resources of its membership to create a vision and shape the digital learning landscape universities will utilize to the benefit of the institution and its instructors, students, and researchers as they adapt teaching and learning in a digital world. ”
“We have an opportunity to work across institutions to solve problems with scale. My institution's needs aren’t unique. Others have the same challenges. We can combine brainpower to solve our issues. It also allows us to share resources. ”
“The ecosystem is changing very quickly. It is not a differentiator anymore. As a commodity, you should want to spend less time and energy on other things.”
Unizin is a cloud-based infrastructure founded on open technology standards. As digital teaching and learning needs evolve, so will our systems. As a collaborative organization, the consortium empowers faculty to decide to share assignments, modules, videos and other content they create with whomever they choose: their campus or colleagues across Unizin or no one at all. Analytics provided by all aspects of the ecosystem enable research to improve learning.
Unizin is a university-owned service for universities with the goal to improve learner success. Ten founding universities provided the initial investment for Unizin in 2014. It is governed as a not-for-profit service operator with a CEO and board of directors from its members as an Unincorporated Association at Internet2.
