Manage your communication perfectly

A single platform to communicate with your various contacts, 100% customizable

All the news from your school

Keep parents and students informed, as well as teachers and alumni. Use the Blog feature to publish all the information about your school's daily life. You can create as many Blog sections as you want and/or categorize them to create a navigation totally adapted to your needs.

A multi-functional CMS

GoodBarber offers you an integrated CMS with which you can create any kind of content. Articles, videos, podcasts... create your content directly in your back office and choose the way you want to publish it: immediate or scheduled. If you wish you can also use one of our 30 connectors to publish external content in your app (YouTube, Wordpress, RSS feeds and many others).

An interactive course material

Use your school's app to deliver lessons in different formats: videos, podcasts or even live sessions. Give your teachers the opportunity to choose their preferred formats to best convey their knowledge. Your students will be delighted to be able to access their lessons anywhere and anytime from their smartphones, tablets or computers.

A public calendar

Use our Calendar sections to highlight key dates in your school's life. Educational events, pedagogical meetings, class councils or school outings, no date will be forgotten. All members of your school will have a clear view of the school's life.

Your school spirit in an app

Make your app a true reflection of your school's values. The "About" section will allow you to express the ideas that characterize your school and your teaching methods.

If you're located on a campus, the "Map" sections will be perfect to help your students find their way between your different buildings. Finally, the many design options will give you the means to create a space with your school's colors so that everyone feels a little bit at home.

Tailored communication tools (Push notifications, SMS)

As a school, it is important to have quick and efficient means of communication to inform students, parents and teachers. For this nothing better than push notifications that you can send manually or automatically. Your users will be able to choose the types of notifications they want to subscribe to. SMS notifications are also particularly effective in reaching your contacts. You have plenty of choices to build a fast and foolproof communication process.

Offer a secure space to your users

Only members of your school can access the content of your app

lpschools_bloc2_media_alt

A built-in authentication system

One of the major challenges for a school is to guarantee the security of the data distributed in the app to your students and their parents. The solution is simple: integrate a reliable and scalable authentication system to your app so that access is restricted. You keep control over the identity of your audience by creating nominative accesses. Your users will then be able to manage their profile and freely consult the content you propose in your app.

Manage your app content as a team

Give access to the back office of your app to members of your educational team

lpschools_bloc3_media_alt

With the GoodBarber back office you have the possibility to create and manage as many accesses to your back office as you want. As an administrator you can manage the level of access rights of each member and choose exactly where they will be allowed to contribute: access to the CMS, choice of sections, sending of notifications, modification of the app's design... This way you will be able to delegate the production of content to your professors, administrative staff and why not to student delegates, association members or editors of the school newspaper. The possibilities are endless and you will always be in control.

Create a real living space

Foster communication and interaction between your members

An interactive directory

With the "User list" section you can create a real trombinoscope that will group all the members of your app. You will be able to choose between several display models with a list mode and a map mode. Your users will be able to browse the list according to their most recent connections or their geographical location.

lpschools_bloc5_directory_media_alt

Features for listening

Give your users a say with the "Form" and "Submission" sections. Use the forms to collect opinions, create surveys. The "Submission" section allows your users to send you photos, videos or text freely. It will be perfect to leave an open door to all students or teachers who would like to share their ideas with you.

Direct interactions

Offer a space for your users to exchange by integrating a chat into your app. They will be able to contact each other via the user list and exchange text messages in a free and secure way.

lpschools_bloc5_chat_media_alt

Create user groups

Adapt your publications and your communication to each target

lpschools_bloc4_media_alt

User groups

As a school app, you address different targets and you will need to publish in your app content specific to each target: administrative notes for your teachers, online courses for your students or school news for parents, your needs are diverse.

To simplify this task, you just need to separate your audience into different user groups and communicate specifically with each group.

Restrictions

Each member of a group can only access the content available to the group to which he belongs. You can easily manage access to the different sections of each group and use the groups to target your notifications. A single app to communicate with all your targets.

Why do schools need an app?

For students

The benefits of a school app for students are many: it provides direct access to academic resources, allows them to stay on top of school activities, but also to establish special connections with their peers and teachers. New generations of students are very tech-savvy and enjoy using them. An app increases student engagement and keeps the connection strong no matter what the conditions or location.

For parents

Regarding the parents of students, an app allows them to benefit from a unified communication platform. It is a real link between teachers and parents thanks to the speed of communication it offers. Parents can take advantage of the app to follow their children's progress more closely and react ultra quickly to better support them. It can also be used as a messaging system between them and the teachers to better understand the schooling and the daily life of their children.

For the faculty

An app is the best opportunity to offer more attractive and engaging courses. The variety of course formats available allows them to test what works best with their students and to perfect their courses. The app is also the ideal tool to centralize all their communication with students, parents but also the school administration.
