Beedle is operated by Beedle ehf, a software company which has developed educational solutions to support teaching and learning for over twenty years. Beedle provides a planning tool inside Microsoft Teams to organise teachers resources. It allows teachers to create, edit and upload long and short term plans. Furthermore, Beedle provides easy navigation to stored resources needed for the day, by providing a ‘link to calendar’ option. Although developed for teachers and those working within education, Beedle enriches any document-rich sector that would profit from a file organisation system that encourages collaborative working.
