Meet Edlio Team Member Anni Baghdasarian. If you’re an Edlio client or employee, you’ve already heard or seen her name (which is definitely a little tricky to say or spell!). She’s probably talked with you about E-rate or payments or payroll. She’s our Finance Manager, which means she is good at all things math & numbers & spreadsheets (oh my!). She started at Edlio in 2008 so she’s something of an Edlio veteran. To all of us around the office, she’s kinda like a superhero that solves math problems and fights for the greater good. But all kidding aside, she is one of the most genuine, caring and generous individuals to ever grace our offices. (Plus, she is the best work BFF anyone could ever have!)
South By Southwest’s Education Conference and Festival welcomes education professionals, and some of the brightest minds in edtech, to Austin, Texas. SXSWedu is a massive conference that pushes participants to connect, collaborate and create change in education. Participants range from teachers, administrators and professors to policy makers, foundations, startups, presidents of large publishing companies and everyone in between.
Of course, we wouldn’t want to miss out on an opportunity to learn and collaborate with some of best and brightest in the game, so our CEO, COO and VP of Product & Technology were also among the attendees. The conference included tons of forward-thinking presentations and informative sessions, but the highlight for many was Bill Gates’ closing keynote address!
Here at Edlio we strive to create the best School Website CMS around. To do this we need a talented team of developers who never stop exploring computer science, even after they have degrees in hand. As a leading tech-company, we recognize how important it is to encourage future students to study computer science, so that we can hire them someday!
Our partnership with the Los Angeles based Exploring Computer Science (ECS) program has been a great way for us to do our part in helping increase the access local students have to the computer science field. Read more →

It’s widely acknowledged that today’s tech-savvy students learn differently than students in the past. Teachers know it’s necessary to reach their students in the most effective way and that’s where EdTech takes center stage.
EdTech, the acronym for Education Technology, is a growing topic and full of an expanding set of terminology. If you don’t have a new year’s resolution yet, I have the perfect one for you, dive head first into the world of EdTech. You won’t regret it!
This year, as part of our Edlio Gives campaign, both our LA and Austin offices adopted families in need for the Christmas holiday.
Edlio- LA partnered with LA County Dept. of Public Social Services Adopt-A-Family program which matches sponsors with families that are undergoing a hardship during the holiday season.
Edlio-Austin participated in the Sponsor-a-Family Gift Drive for SafePlace, an amazing organization that takes in and offers shelter and security to families that have suffered domestic abuse.
We’re thrilled to announce a reimagined mobile experience for your Edlio website. Now, when someone visits your Edlio-powered site from a mobile phone, they’ll see exactly what they would have seen from a desktop PC, but in a sharply redesigned look optimized for smaller screens. Read more →
Thanksgiving is a holiday full of traditions, and for many, it means a great feast with friends and family. Regardless of your traditions it’s important to recognize that Thanksgiving is a holiday with two parts – “thanks” and “giving.” Most recognize the first part means expressing gratitude for everything we have and remembering what’s important in our lives. However, we can’t forget about the many less fortunate people in the world who need help.
I use Twitter and think it’s a great way to keep informed and learn about topics of interest, but a friend of mine recently told me they just don’t understand how Twitter is worth anyone’s time. Twitter is like a newspaper that is being written in real time by people I find interesting. During the conversation my friend pointed out that tons of people are raving about how Twitter is great for Professional Development, but she just finds it confusing, limited, and a waste of time. This conversation got me thinking. Is Twitter really a valuable tool for educators? I seem to think so, but she is a tech savvy teacher and doesn’t find a use for it. So, what’s going on here?
