DigitalEd Brochure and Smartphone Grip Stand


These objects are from DigitalEd, a spin-off company of Maplesoft, a company that provides mathematics-based software for educators, engineers, and researchers. DigitalEd provides online STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) courseware. They partnered with the Mathematical Association of America to develop placement testing and assessment products and course content.

The brochure, titled “The Future of Online Education,” advertises their online education products.

The circular-shaped collapsible smartphone grip stand, also known as a “PopSocket,” has a blue background with the DigitalEd logo in white text. On the back is a 3M adhesive disk for attaching it to the phone.

These objects were collected at the Joint Mathematics Meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America held in Baltimore, Maryland in January 2019.
