For more than a decade, WCET’s EduTools website was a leading destination for educational technology decision makers. The independent reviews and side-by-side comparisons of educational technology products were used by colleges, universities, and systems to expedite and streamline their review and evaluation of products.

EduTools was best known for its CMS/LMS comparative reviews and a detailed matrix of CMS/LMS features and criteria. The matrix covers tools for:

  • communications,
  • productivity,
  • student involvement,
  • administration,
  • course delivery,
  • content development,
  • hardware/software definitions, and,
  • cost/licensing definitions.

This matrix was last updated in 2006.

EduTools was launched in 2001 with funding support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The EduTools site was closed in 2013.
