We’ve been up to a lot in the Education Umbrella offices in the last few weeks, so we thought we’d show you some of our favourite highlights just in case you missed them!

Our primary intention when designing TECbook was for it to be easy to use for both teaching and learning. For us, ease-of-use is crucial. If you present someone with a complex product that has far too many features and options, it can be quite daunting. We wanted to make sure getting a student started didn’t require an I.T. department to intervene, or students to pre-register in any way. more “Introducing TECbook: Our approach to creating an eBook platform for education”

In our mission to explore of all things educational we’ve begun to notice just how creative you teachers are getting in your classrooms!

One of the most interesting aspects of an online business like Education Umbrella is that it’s constantly possible to gain new insights into how customers want to shop.
Some while ago it became clear that, at certain times of year and amongst certain audiences (school librarians in particular), the standard e-Commerce model of search-compare-select wasn’t always a perfect fit when buying school books.
