What is EduPosse?

EduPosse is a mobile led, education centric, secure, Social learning platform for connecting parents, teachers and students and increasing and improving communication amongst them. It provides a teacher the power to communicate with her students and their parents in a simple, secure and effective manner. It provides a parent ways and means to become a part of his child's digital life. And to the student it provides a comfortable and enjoyable environment to explore new ways of learning, interacting with his peers and at the same time, share and learn from his parents and teachers.

While the children have been adopting digital lives very early and at an ever-increasing rate, the parent does not have any participation at all. The platform allows a parent and the teacher to form a team to maximize the child's learning potential taking advantage of digital content and other mechanisms available. Teachers, students and parents can store and share all forms of digital content be it blogs, links, pictures, video, documents, presentations, and much more. There are also special tools and apps that integrate and blend into the workflow of schools and teachers, allowing them to have an enhanced communication with their students and parents at the same time.
