Unizin Ecosystem

  • Data and Analytics

    Your data, your way

  • Learning Environment

    Scaled technology for educators and learners

  • Content

    Better materials for learners

The student experience consists of a vast array of data points. Unizin tools and services aggregate this data from the 900,000+ students enrolled across our Member Institutions, providing new understanding of the student experience and insights into making it more successful.

At Unizin, we contract for, develop, integrate, and operate evolving cloud-scale service. This allows our Member Institutions to focus on teaching and learning, rather than spending valuable time and money on developing software.

Too often, learning materials are expensive, difficult to acquire, or simply unsatisfactory. Unizin tools and services:

  • Allow faculty to develop their own content, or choose high-quality materials from some of the best-known providers of educational content, and
  • Deliver learning materials faster and more cost-effectively.
