I am so impressed with your product and how it much it has evolved just in the one year we’ve had it. My high school teachers love it, and our elementary teachers praise its inter-connectivity and how easy it is to use.

    On September 1st, to kick-off our new blog series, “The Power to Report Bullying”, we will be defining, and attempting to create a better understanding of, the main types of bullying. We will give in-depth descriptions of the signs and symptoms of bullying, and also describe the physical and emotional damage it can cause.

The message and discussion forums seem to be a great addition to Jupiter iO. I have a lot of students engaged in the subject and are really excited they get to answer questions online. It’s nice for me because all of this is in one place and easy to access.

Jupiter Ed Celebrates 10th Anniversary as a Leading Provider of Solutions to the Education Market

Jupiter Ed, a leader in cloud based gradebook, learning management system, data analytics, and student information system solutions for the education market, announced today that August 2014 marks the company’s 10th anniversary of its founding.

Founder David Hundsness started as a middle/high school teacher in 1992 in Silicon Valley. He was an early adopter of electronic gradebooks, but over the years he noticed that gradebook software was still tedious. Therefore, in the summer of 2004, he programmed his own web-based gradebook. “At first I was just developing the gradebook for myself,” says Hundsness, “but within a few days I realized all teachers could use something like this.”

He launched the gradebook as SnapGrades, and teachers immediately recognized the value of having grades online for students, citing its ease of use and intuitive design. By 2009, SnapGrades had become the #1 web-based gradebook. Between 2009-2013, the company rebranded as Jupiter Ed, and expanded their Gradebook to add the SIS, LMS, and Data Analytics, to what is now their award winning all-in-one solution, Jupiter iO.

Throughout the past ten years, Jupiter Ed has proven to be the leader in education technology innovation, far outpacing the competition. Unlike other providers, Jupiter Ed continues to develop all applications in-house, rather than acquiring third-party applications. Because of this, Jupiter iO is the only fully integrated all-in-one solution on the market.

Jupiter Ed has grown every year, and has been profitable since 2006. They are completely self-funded, with no debt or investors. The company has recruited the brightest talent, with employees now in 6 states. They currently serve schools in 49 states, totaling 3.4 million students.     

"It is surprising, even to myself, how much has changed in ten years, and how much our company has grown," said Hundsness. "I am grateful to our talented staff, and to all our loyal customers, who have given us great feedback and shared their enthusiastic love for Jupiter Ed."

Jupiter iO Named an eSchool News 2014 Readers’ Choice Award Winner

Jupiter Ed, a leading provider of gradebook, LMS, data analytics and SIS solutions, announced that eSchool News awarded the company’s Jupiter iO solution, their 2014 Readers’ Choice Award.

The Readers’ Choice Awards recognize outstanding educational technology products and services, as indicated by nearly 1,300 educators and readers of eCampusNews.com, and eClassroomNews.com.

Jupiter iO is a cloud-based all-in-one gradebook, LMS, data analytics, and SIS solution, currently serving schools in 49 states, totaling 3.4 million students. “August marks our company’s 10th anniversary of providing our solutions to the education market,” said Jackie Deluna, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development. “I cannot think of a better gift than to be recognized and honored by our customers and the readers of eSchool News.”

Educators themselves nominate their favorite products and services, by explaining how they’re using their nominated products to improve teaching, learning, and/or school administration—and to what effect.

From The eSchoolNews.com Reader’s Choice Awards:
I use Jupiter Ed as an electronic gradebook, but it has so much more to offer than just keeping track of student grades,” said Dianna Talbott, a teacher at Sweetwater Union High School in California. “I create online quizzes for students to take on their iPads or on a computer. The students love the instant feedback, and I love the ease of entering in the new scores with just a couple of clicks. Also, the email feature is a great way for me to send messages to one or many of my students. In addition, I can send messages to parents to keep them informed about upcoming projects. Students can keep track of their assignments, and so can their parents. This is truly a great product that can benefit all educators!”

The result is a collection of ed-tech products that educational colleagues nationwide have found to be effective in improving education. Award results for the “fifty ed-tech products and services that are making a difference in schools” are available at eSchoolNews.com/rca/.

Everybody loves the new features, and they keep talking about what a great company you are!
