CEO Jason Corbett on ACE Radio Network

CEO Jason Corbett was recently interviewed on ACE Radio Network Local News on TRFM Gippsland regarding how uEducateUs can help with schools during the COVID-19 shutdown, including text communication and built-in tasks to assign students.

Keeping in contact during school shutdowns

Ordinarily, term one holidays would end on the 14th of April. However, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic may force longer closures. Because of this, many schools are seeking guidance on how to run their curriculum.

Coronavirus update – school at home

There’s a lot of uncertainty around school closures at the moment and we thought it wise to show schools how they can keep operating even if staff and students are forced into quarantine.

We’ve created a series of Knowledge Base articles to help you setup your school so students can work from home.
