Education Solutions

ConnectYard provides a completely FERPA compliant, engagement platform that ensures EQUAL ACCESS for all of your learners by allowing for anytime, anywhere communication and collaboration across a variety of social and mobile technologies, including WhatsApp (delivery and read receipts), Twitter DM, Facebook, SMS (no data plan required), MMS (rich text, picture and video messaging) and Voice (text-to-speech, speech-to-text) using Amazon Poly (Alexa in 29 languages). Our solutions can help you and your institution communicate more effectively in three different areas; Remote Learning, Student Services, and Pandemic Alerts. The ConnectYard platform also seamlessly integrates with existing learning systems (Google ClassroomZoom, Microsoft Teams, Edmodo, Moodle, Sakai, Canvas, Blackboard, D2L Brightspace) and portal solutions, allowing all of your constituents to communicate using their technology of choice, including phones with only basic celluar service and no data plan. This enables your institution to meet Federal requirements for supporting remote learners with disabilities as well as more effectively engage with English language learners and students of poverty that often do not have EQUAL ACCESS to broadband and other smart devices; thereby decreasing absenteeism.
