Features and Benefits
Save Time and Improve Learner Success
EDA includes industry standard objects built directly on the Salesforce platform that model learner relationships and affiliations to courses, extracurricular activities, and more. With EDA, institutions can leverage a common language and configuration across the entire learner lifecycle without having to spend resources customizing Salesforce for education.
Customize to Your Unique Needs
Tailor EDA to meet your institution’s specific needs with clicks, not code. Easily configure page layouts with drag-and-drop functionality and create custom fields or objects for your institution. By connecting EDA with your student information, learning management, and other institution systems, you’ll be able to create a 360-degree view of every learner at scale. Take our Trailhead course to learn how to manage your education data with EDA.
Unlock Continuous Innovation
Create the experience your learners expect with the latest education technology innovation from Salesforce.org. With bi-weekly EDA releases, you can eliminate the need for time-intensive change management across your institution. Incremental enhancements are automatically pushed to EDA, so you can spend less time gathering data and more time strengthening learner relationships from recruitment and admissions all the way to advancement and alumni engagement.
Join a Diverse Education Community
Learn and grow from a community of education leaders. As a community-influenced data architecture, EDA brings together a diverse group of education Trailblazers through open-source community sprints and the Power of Us Hub, an online community where customers can collaborate, ask questions, and share ideas to shape the future of EDA.
