Finland has one of the top education systems in the world, routinely topping international rankings and evaluations. Education Alliance Finland (EAF) evaluates education technology products based on standards set in and for Finland’s schools, including review by Masters-level Finnish instructors. Earning EAF Certification, formerly known as the Kokoa Standard, is considered an elite-level honor reflecting the highest in pedagogy and technology efficacy.
Only about half of evaluated products achieve EAF certification.
In the 74-page assessment from EAF, classroom.cloud received a 94% score on “pedagogical approach” and a 4.07 in “learning engagement.” Both scores are considered to be excellent. The report says, “In classroom.cloud teachers have a wide range of tools to manage the classroom actions and are able to produce versatile tasks and contents to support remote lessons.”
"The certification verifies that efficient, appropriate use of classroom.cloud leads into positive learning outcomes," said Saila Juuti of EAF.
“We are honored and gratified by the certification from Education Alliance Finland,” said Al Kingsley, CEO of NetSupport. “It really is the gold-standard of education quality and it speaks to the effort and attention we’ve put into designing a product that really works for teachers and school to manage their remote learning, whether that be in a classroom or distributed outside of school.”

classroom.cloud provides unique flexibility, allowing teachers to monitor the applications and internet use on each student’s computer no matter where they are connected.
