uEducateUs has a few features that will help during school closures.
Class & homework tasks are simplified by uEducateUs tasks. Write them up and add attachments, then assign to students, groups or classes. Students get notifications when they're assigned, and teachers can monitor student engagement with the curriculum.
Use announcements to broadcast messages to selected recipients, groups or your community.
Students, teachers and parents can converse using an internal system that's a lot like SMS messaging.
Contact our tech support for help with these features, or check out the Knowledgebase articles.
If you need to speak to someone, rather than raising a support ticket, then request a callback.
You will be called back by the requested person in a timely manner.
Raise a tech support ticket if you're experiencing issues with the uEducateUs system.
We’re running an ongoing series of blog posts with information to help you out during school closures and beyond.
