Pros

The app is continuing to improve. It is nice to now have a better format of the app parents of our school are much more pleased with the app as most use that system.
In addition to being a very useful learning management tool, Edsby helps members of our school community keep in touch with one another and celebrate each other's successes.
I like the “poll” options. I like that it is easy to communicate with my students and other teachers.

Pros

Illumine was easy to use and very convenient. I love that I can communicate with the school efficiently and effectively.
Overall is is great , good initiative to consolidate all of the schol information at one place. In short this is like an ERP system for schools.
Also a lot of followups on emails, SMS are saved by using this product. The experience has been great and their support team at times has gone out of their way to help.

Cons

It seems like students may have the tendency to be too casual while using this. My kids haven't had this problem, but I can understand how this issue frustrates some of the teachers.
Instead, it moves to the beginning of the school year. Very annoying that I have to scroll back down.
Limitation in online evaluation due to limitation in symbols and math equations.

Cons

It can possibly do something more on the live interaction feature adding; at the moment as I know it’s all about posting content but no live interactions are there.
Need Internet connectivity which may be difficult when Internet is not available.
Doesn't show the history of comments on assignments; should enable feature to have 1:1 chat with teachers to clarify doubts.
