Aimed at the multibillion-dollar educational travel market, the easily-used platform simplifies trip planning and organization, whether of one-day field trips or international tours, while reducing overhead.
The platform will be free for educators to use. Like event-planning platforms, it will charge a modest fee based on trip ticket costs, in line with most other services. Trips with no cost will be entirely free. The service not only has a platform for registering attendees but also integrates marketing features such as reminder emails, to make it a truly efficient, modern channel for streamlining educational travel.
“This will really revolutionize the way educators take their classes on trips,” says Amy Slate, Director of Educational Initiatives at Boston University and a leading expert on educational technology. “Education is becoming less bound by the classroom, more global, and more hands-on.
Teachers on all levels are increasingly taking their students out of the classroom. EdTrips makes that whole process exponentially simpler. It really represents one of the most useful applications of technology to the teacher workload that I’ve seen in a long time. Teachers have more time to focus on the content, and do less administration. I’m very excited to see what EdTrips is doing,” she adds.
With 22,000 users registered and growing, EdTrips aims to be the foremost event registration platform for EDU.
