Quizizz, a current AWS EdStart member that has expanded into India, is actively working with Indian instructors to bring education solutions to the country. Quizizz is a multiplayer-quizzing platform designed for classrooms. It helps teachers to conduct a quick assessment for their students as a game. The platform aims to get students excited about learning while also giving teachers performance data in real time.

Quizizz started their journey working with underserved students attending the Pakirama Foundation schools in India. They worked closely with the teachers and students on different ideas to help motivate students with technology. Quizizz launched its first online product based on their work with the Indian students.

Since then, Quizizz has used AWS to scale internationally, reaching students in India, in the United States, and beyond.

“The technical support and mentorship from the AWS team helped us architect our current application and migrate it to containers. This significantly reduced our server bill and DevOps work,” said Ankit Gupta, CEO, Quizizz.

Quizizz is just one of the many AWS EdStart members revolutionizing education. Visit their webpage to learn more about the other AWS EdStart Members and how they are transforming education globally.
