Helpful Features

uEducateUs has a few features that will help during school closures.


Tasks

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.


Announcements

Use announcements to broadcast messages to selected recipients, groups or your community.


Conversations

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.

Request Callback

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.
