In 2015, ClassDojo raised $21 million to develop an app that will connect teachers to parents and improve communication. The communication platform helps parents get updates on the students’ activities, behavior, and social developments.
A year-round communication platform will allow parents get timely information on what the kids are experiencing. This technology overcomes the conventional system where parents and teachers meet once in a semester.
ClassDojo enables parents to be aware of daily schedules, as teachers can send photos and videos to parents. ClassDojo faces competition from other education technology providers including Remind, Nearpod, Kickboard, and FreshGrade amongst others.
The firm was established to meet the demand for free and easy to use app that would create a culture and community among educators, students, and their parents. This was an unexploited opportunity as other edtech firms were in business to provide digital curriculum, testing platforms, and grade books.
Currently, the application is used by 85,000 private, public and charter schools across the United States. After raising the capital, ClassDojo is focused on upgrading the application to include more contents that can be useful to parents and not just for school purposes. Since its inception in 2011, the firm has not yet made any revenue, and it is committed to ensuring privacy is maintained.
