The ELLA advantage
Better balance for students, teachers, and parents.
These days, educators are spread thin and under more pressure than ever before. Ella is ready to help by putting students first acting both as a virtual academic coach, and a teacher of executive functioning skills. For educators, Ella simplifies and streamlines the planning and grading process via a suite of smart tools giving teachers meaningful hours of time back every week. How? Well, let’s say you’re teaching four of the same section to multiple groups. That’s means a lot of time spent uploading all those sections in a traditional LMS. But not anymore. Ella’s streamlined planning means you’ll only need to upload the course content one time letting you plan once and execute against multiple groups while saving you 75% of the time it currently takes you to do this!

The ELLA APPROACH
Through better understanding comes better achievement.
Unlike other LMS’s, Ella was built to encourage higher quality engagement between teachers, students, and parents. This can help with both understanding course or content to getting on the same page with teacher expectations. From this improved transparency, better academic results can occur. No longer do parents have to wait until a Parent Teacher conference to know where their child stands academically. Instead, they become active participants in their child’s academic journey.

Building better relationships one good habit at a time.
It’s natural for students to sometimes feel overwhelmed with their schoolwork and other extracurricular activities. This can lead to anxiety and stress and sometimes hurt familial or interpersonal relationships. Ella’s suite of smart tools can help by building important critical thinking skills along with other key executive functioning skills such as: planning, time management, goal setting, working memory and mental flexibility. When students use these tools, they learn to manage their academic and social life putting them in control of their success and destiny. As a result, they’re better able to manage stress and anxiety.
The ELLA APPROACH
Elevated learning happens when we’re better connected.
We believe that good communication is the foundation of better relationships between students, teachers, and parents. So, we built our LMS to be a helpful communicator allowing important updates and messages to be seamlessly transmissible from teacher to student, parent to teacher, or many combinations in between. Early and often enough to be helpful but spaced appropriately to be respectful of people’s attention spans and time.
Smart Grade Boost
Let’s say a student has a C- in class and wants to raise it up. Ella Grade Boost can show the way, providing a calculation of where the outstanding assignments with the most points are or which past ones can be recompleted and submitted again.
