b About EDGT
Who We Are
Educational Global Technologies, Inc.
Educational Global Technologies, Inc. specializes in the design and development of quality online educational programs to be used by educators, students of nursing, practicing professionals of nursing, or other interested members of the healthcare professions. We believe that users should be able to learn and practice at their leisure at home, school, or in their work environments. We also believe that educators need to track their own students' progress and should have easy and immediate access to all of their students' online activities and test results.
EDGT's Web site was produced to provide learner with flexible, accessible, and enjoyable learning experiences. Its tutorials are highly interactive and fun. Practice items are generously interspersed and serve as learning checks. Practice activities, some in the form of games, link theory to general practice. Tests are included to help users and instructors monitor the learning process.
We welcome feedback about our tutorials and suggestions for new topics from any of our users.

Our office hours are 9am to 4pm Central Time Monday through Friday.
In 2000, Educational Global Technologies, Inc. obtained the rights to the software programs previously distributed by C&D Computer Enterprises, Inc. which delivered nursing education tutorials on diskette accompanied by printed materials. To keep current with technology and its evolving use for education, we reprogrammed all of the software into a completely web-based format. We call this: Online Tutorials and Testing.
EDGT has also created over 100 online practice tests in many different subject areas to be used by students to learn and test their knowledge. These tests are easily accessed via most modern browsers and are included free of charge to educational institutions purchasing any of our online products.
In 2004, we extended the online testing idea by creating a simple online test authoring system called QuizMaker which allows instructors to create their own online, custom-made tests for their students.
