About Us

A collaboration platform to enhance parent and teacher teamwork in a child's future.

SchoolBell.chat is a real-time communication platform providing a reliable and secure channel for exchanging information and encouraging parent involvement. SchoolBell.chat is a cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) platform which works seamlessly with the school management systems and learning management systems. 

SchoolBell.chat bridges the distance between parents and teachers by establishing robust and secure channels of communication for sharing information about student performance, attendance, emergencies, and behaviour. The more parents are informed about their children, the more they feel part of the team. Furthermore, well-informed teachers can maximize their attention to their students; thus improving teacher’s morale and boosting parent’s confidence in their children.

FAQs

The must-have School Collaboration Platform, here to Help

It all sounds great, but what does this App actually do?

The core feature of SchoolBell.chat is its real-time communication channel which integrates seamlessly with existing school systems to collate parent and teacher information. A teacher or a parent can communicate via video, audio & multi-media messages with the ability for real-time group conferencing on the go. 


With SchoolBell.chat,

  • Establish secure & real-time communication between parents and teachers

  • Receive real-time alerts and information about your children in case of emergencies.

  • Reduce travel time to school for parent-teacher meetings and interviews.

  • Lessen teacher workload by minimising after school interviews and meetings.

  • Collaborate efficiently to understand any behavioural or learning issues of children

  • Avoid sharing personal information

I’ve seen other Apps that serve similar purposes. What makes yours the best?

Existing School Management Systems (SIS) and Learning Management Systems (LMS) are overloaded with features and is used more as an administrative or learning tool. These tools do not encourage parent involvement.


Current communication tools at schools are not real-time and often work as an address book. In some cases, they also can send notifications for a group. They cannot do two-way real-time communication. 


Communication channels like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, calls, text/SMS and emails address the communication needs in general. However, they are not made to promote parent-teacher communication. These tools have significant overhead to establish and maintain parent-teacher relationships. 


Social media channels are vulnerable to privacy issues. They provide minimal control over the content and are cumbersome to maintain confidential information about student-parent relationships. 


Benefits of SchoolBell.chat are: 

  • Provides dedicated channels or threads of communication.

  • Real-time Text, audio and video communication

  • Ability to be do not disturbed.

  • Integrates seamlessly with the school systems requiring no manual overhead to maintaining relationships.

  • Reflects any change in the relationships within connected SIS or LMS systems.

  • Preserves confidentiality of private information.

  • Can be used from any computer, smartphone or tablet.

  • No installation required.


Top four scenarios where integration with SIS or LMS benefits:

  1. New Student Joining

  2. Student Leaving

  3. Change in custody

  4. Start of year or term

As a teacher, I already have enough work load. Will this app add more workload?

We at SchoolBell.chat understand that the teaching profession has one of the highest job-related stress. Teachers have to deal with anxious, aggressive and demanding parents. To satisfy these parents, teachers have to sacrifice personal time writing lengthy emails or waiting after school hours for meetings and interviews. 


We at Schoobell.chat consider teacher well being as our highest priority. We are constantly studying journals on teacher workload and conduct interviews of teachers to ensure that whatever we do does not deteriorate the situation. 


Below we are listing out some of the plus points that we have found out from our research and interviews. 


With SchoolBell.chat teachers can

  1. Set status notification about availability to prevent "home invasions" which will through emails and messages through other channels. 

  2. Send transactional messages for the issue at hand rather than lengthy email chains. With transactional messages, teachers can preempt parents from assuming things and can also take a proactive approach to solve the problem.

  3. Reduce the need to stay post-school hours by utilising the downtime to initiate meetings and interviews with parents using video and audio calls.

  4. Keep conversations private hence only people who need to know is kept in the loop helping teacher maintain their morale and self-esteem.

  5. Feel more engaged with parents thereby gaining their trust.
