Today’s educators need tools to help students develop better communication, problem solving, and 21st century skills. Strong socio-emotional intelligence is just as important as the academic ability to be well prepared and ready to move forward in life after high school.

So we set out to create the first and only learning management solution to match educators with the emotional quotient. eKadence thrives where the two collide.

At eKadence, we remain on a mission to benefit educators unlock students’ true potential and empower them to find their purpose – because purpose is a powerful thing.

Considering a move to Mastery Learning? We’ve got you covered! ekadence

As colleges and universities start to move away from traditional admissions processes, long-term success indicators such as GPA and ACT/SAT (hard skills) scores are less emphasized when measuring an’s full potential. student. Instead, admissions officers prefer to take a more holistic approach (involving soft skills) to understanding the student as a whole.

That’s what mastery learning does. Our platform allows your organization to manage and assess the hard and soft skills of an individual student’s subject domain and content. This leads to a profounder understanding of the student’s strengths and true potential.
