Schoology has closed a new $15 million round of funding led by Intel Capital along with new investors Great Oaks Venture Capital and Great Road Holdings.

“Intel is excited to be a part of Schoology’s growth as it strengthens its position in the K-12 market and continues expanding into higher education and international markets,” said John Galvin, vice president of the Sales and Marketing Group at Intel and general manager of Intel Education. “Learning platforms have quickly become one of the fastest growing segments in education technology, and Schoology has emerged as a leader in this space and continues building the best-in-class platform for education.”

Intel Capital’s Sumeet Jain will join Schoology’s Board of Directors.

Schoology—recently named the top education technology product at the 2014 SIIA CODiE Awards—has reimagined and redefined learning management systems by creating a collaborative, blended learning experience for use on any device, at any time or anywhere. Schoology provides tools for instruction and curriculum management, dedicated mobile apps, access to an integrated global learning community, advanced analytics and reporting, and an open platform for third-parties to build on top of the Schoology platform.

“We are in a golden age for education technology, and Schoology is at the forefront, driving innovation in the market. We continue to receive praise from our users, as well as industry accolades, for our work in building a unified platform that is helping to improve the learning experience for students of all ages,” said Jeremy Friedman, CEO of Schoology. “Intel is one of the largest names in global education, and their investment represents significant validation for the work we are doing.”

Schoology now supports five million users, across 50,000 schools and in almost every country. This new growth capital will allow Schoology to accelerate growth as it scales up operations, expands into new markets, and builds new features.

The round of funding follows a series of major wins for Schoology. In addition to winning three awards at this year’s CODiE Awards, the country of Uruguay recently selected Schoology for all 620,000 students in their national education initiative, and CSU Global Campus chose to collaborate with Schoology on a learning management system for its premier global online university.

Schoology will be exhibiting at ISTE 2014, the largest education technology conference in the U.S., June 28-July 1 in booth 3026. Schoology’s sold-out, inaugural user conference, Schoology NEXT, kicks off in Denver, June 24-25, with Alan November as the keynote speaker.
