An advanced and complete discussion forum solution for your distance learning, classroom and/or faculty websites, FuseTalk Education edition adds another dimension to the existing online presence of schools and school districts. It supports thousands of users on a single server. Multiple unique and secure forums can be quickly established, users can share documents, create surveys, and much more.
"It's very confusing for all participants of the education system - what to get, what to use, how to implement it, how to meet different needs, objectives, security, et cetera. This is all noise for educators, and FuseTalk uniquely takes care of all of this," says Greg Waite, CEO of FuseTalk.
This generation is more likely to go online than to use traditional approaches – and a “green”, zero-footprint technology is attractive to students and teachers. It’s a significant benefit that the information is always retained for future improvement and historical analysis.
Parents and teachers need assurance that security, protection and confidentiality is paramount, and FuseTalk offers the ability to lock down or password-protect specific categories so that only certain individuals are permitted access. Permissions can be quickly defined – setting different parameters for students, teachers, parent groups, and administrative staff – to meet any school board’s privacy policies. If required, categories can be moderated, allowing each message to be examined before it is posted to the community at large. There is the ability to ban individuals not complying with the rules, and a filter so that unacceptable or profane words do not appear in messages.
A forum can be all things to all people within the academic community. Publish course material lists and presentations, update lecture/lesson notes, and maintain URLs of student resources so they're always current. Students can access the portal at any time, day or night – there is no reason to miss an assignment. Students, teaching assistants and teachers can discuss materials and homework. Interactive parent/teacher communication makes teachers and administrators more accessible to the families of students; forums can address important issues like bullying and special education and funding.
