Create a connected classroom to actively engage students

Create a fully connected classroom with the premium chat that students already love to use in their personal life, whether you’re integrating polls and quizzes, or soliciting student feedback and fielding questions. Share rich content in chat to create interactive lessons that help students retain more information and stay engaged, or share educational material like course materials, feedback on assignments, homework, videos and more. Creating a community of learners, chat bridges the gap in distance learning between educators and learners: engage students by creating constructive group discussions, integrating polls and quizzes, soliciting student feedback, and fielding questions without distracting the teacher. Our APIs allow you to:

  • Share rich multimedia to create interactive lessons
  • Open channel chat to engage students without interrupting the live lecture
  • Create group chats for easy small group interaction during class
  • Moderate users to ensure a productive environment
  • Analyze student engagement data for deeper insights

Voice and video for 1:1 education experiences

Distance learning doesn’t need to lack connection. Create personalized and immersive 1:1 learning experiences by integrating voice, video and chat into your web or mobile platform. Chat creates that crucial, initial connection between learners and educators. And tutoring, office hours or individual lessons come to life with crisp voice and clear video, while you target student needs in real-time or asynchronously
