To help educators and students advance learning every day.
Founded in 1981 by Dr. Darrell Ward, eInstruction pioneered the use of student response systems in education with the creation of a handheld "clicker" system called CPS™ (Classroom Performance System™). Today CPS™ remains the leading student response system in education, used by more than 5 million students in K-12 and higher education classrooms around the world.
eInstruction technology gives administrators the ability to instantly capture, grade, report and analyze student performance data. The company offers educators and administrators a family of software, student response systems, interactive whiteboards, mobile interactive whiteboards, and powerful enterprise-based administrator tools. eInstruction's research-based solutions have been shown to increase student engagement and achievement while providing real-time actionable feedback and performance data to educators and administrators.
In 2006, eInstruction acquired FSCreations, creators of ExamView®, and worked with educators and publishers to offer seamless integration between CPS™ and ExamView® publishers' content and question banks. The platform enables instructors to easily incorporate publisher and proprietary question banks into their lesson plans, quizzes, and tests, and allows for real-time assessment and feedback.
To further bolster its offerings to educators and students, in 2008 eInstruction acquired Interwrite Learning®, inventors of the Interwrite SchoolPad® and Interwrite® Pad wireless interactive tablets. Working closely with the education community, eInstruction also integrated its ExamView®, CPS™, and Interwrite Workspace® software to create a unique, integrated learning platform, bringing together three pillars of teaching — content, instruction, and assessment.
In 2009, eInstruction launched the eI Community™, a content-rich online resource center open to all, where educators can find and share educational resources and discuss best practices online.
eInstruction continues to collaborate with the education community to pioneer innovative solutions to help energize, engage, and assess students in learning. Millions of students, teachers, and professors use eInstruction® technology in 500,000 K-12 classrooms and more than 1,000 higher education institutions around the world. Available in more than 40 languages, eInstruction® technology is enhancing education in over 90 countries worldwide.
eInstruction has offices in Denton, TX; Fort Wright, KY; Scottsdale, AZ; and Paris, France.
