Educational tech firm picks Boston as its US base

Desire2Learn Inc., a Canadian firm that helps schools and teachers manage instructional material via the cloud, is basing its US operations in Boston.

The fast-growing company got a foothold in Boston when it bought the mobile app maker Wiggio in March. The company makes a Web and mobile platform that college students and groups use to coordinate calendars, share files, and message each other. It will be integrated in Desire2Learn’s online Learning Suite, which allows teachers to post grades and course documents and students to take notes and discuss assignments with others.
