10 Hottest Social Media Solution Companies 2016

The advent of trends such as mobile and Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) is helping the educational institutions today to broaden their horizons. These trends can support innovative ways of learning, like social-media based learning and help the tutors to augment their services in multiple areas—be it maintaining records, providing online educational resources, or streamlining the administration with reduced paperwork. One of the major benefits of using social media in education is that it will encourage students to communicate openly and honestly with their peers, teachers and other faculties. The other opportunities for learners include greater access to rich, multimedia content that goes beyond traditional linear text based learning environments.

These web-based applications also help instructors with tools that enable them to keep a track on student engagement. Meanwhile, integrating these services into the education landscape in a meaningful way, without having to worry about distraction is the biggest challenge for the institutions.

To help the educational organizations address these challenges, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts including Education Tech Insights' editorial board have selected the leading firms that offer best-of-breed technology solutions and services related to social media in the education sector. The selection panel looked at the vendor’s capability to fulfill needs of institutions with effective solutions that curb the challenges.
