Upcoming feature: Messages

One of the requests we receive from time to time is for the ability for teachers to message other teachers (and parents) more easily in QuickSchools.

Up to now, we’ve designed QuickSchools so that messaging is one-way i.e. via the Parent Portal, from the school to the students/parents.

This year, we will introduce a new messaging capability in QuickSchools so that effective communication can take place between teachers, parents and students. Teachers will be able to connect privately with other teachers and with parents as well. You will see a new Messages icon appearing by your profile picture which will indicate if there are messages waiting for you. Clicking on the icon will take you to the Messages screen where you can see all your messages.

QuickSchools Messages will be released in beta in April this year and we hope this will result in better and more effective communication.

UPDATED Feb 20, 2013:

First version of Private Messaging is now available for teachers:

We’ll include parents and students in a future release. Thanks!

Upcoming feature: Teacher Pages

Our next feature that’s coming up real soon is Teacher Pages. Through Teacher Pages, teachers can connect with their classes for each subject that they teach. Teachers will be able to create and share rich content e.g. post a message and introduce a topic to the class, share links to material available on the Internet like a TED Talk video, a wikipedia article or a video from the Khan Academy, etc.

Students (and maybe parents too) of the class will then be able to connect through their respective portals and share their thoughts as well. Hopefully, the Teacher Pages feature will encourage discussions and exchange of ideas that ultimately enhances the classroom learning experience.

We are very excited about this new feature and we’ll share more details once the feature’s released.

UPDATED May 3, 2013:

The Teacher Pages module had been released, but it has been renamed to “Class Discussions”. We will be posting it on our blog in the next few days. You can turn it on via the “Features” page. Let us know what you think about it.

Read Jon Hall’s account on how Franklin Burns helped his daughter. QuickSchools is a fully-online school management system.

I’m a father that loves his daughter dearly and is willing to do anything to see her smile.  I wanted her to succeed this is the reason my wife and I pulled her out of public school.  The public school system works for eighty percent of the students but leaves behind the other twenty percent.  My daughter was one of the students in the twenty percent.  She was very smart but was struggling because the public school system could not meet her needs.  Read More »

Elizabeth Fry shares her story on how Franklin Burns helped her daughter to read better. Frank – you rock! is a fully-online school management system.

I have a daughter that has ADHD and she has always struggle with school especially with reading.  I was taking my daughter to a tutoring company and I saw very little progress.  The company would give her worksheets and then they would check on her during the allotted time. I wanted something different that would help my daughter read with more accuracy and fluency.  In addition, my daughter was receiving tutoring in the morning at school and she was still receiving very low grades on her report card on reading and language arts.  Read More »
