VizZle is an online learning platform with visually supported, interactive and standards-aligned lessons. Designed to meet the individual needs of students with special needs, educators use the app to reinforce concepts and meet IEP goals and learning objectives for all students. VizZle’s anywhere, anytime access supports mean parents and teachers can work together to help students meet learning goals in the classroom and at home.
“It’s an honor to be nominated for these two prestigious awards and I’m grateful for the recognition. When we started VizZle ten years ago, our focus was students with IEPs. Today, because of COVID, there is a dire need to help all students by giving them a robust online learning experience. We look forward to partnering with school leaders on remote or online learning solutions,” said Bob Gephart, CEO and President, VizZle.
Acknowledged as the premier awards program for the software and information industries for 35 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media and digital content industries.
