Modo Campus, the no-code application development and deployment solution specifically designed for higher education, was named the 2020 winner over finalists Google Classroom and Schoolbox. More than 300 higher education institutions use Modo Campus to inform, engage and connect their students, staff and communities.

“We are very proud of David Johnson and the University of Houston community for this deserved recognition of their ongoing effort and success,” said Murtagh.

The Tech Edvocate Award winners were announced on August 31, 2020 and selected by “a panel comprised of two edtech thought leaders, two PreK-12 teachers, one college professor, two K-12 administrators, one college administrator, and two PreK-12 parents,” according to the announcement.
