With this service, teachers will be able to send notices, among other elements, to their students and parents immediately, and with total security. It is an application for mobile devices, iOS and Android, not yet very well known in Spain, but widely used in other countries.

And not only that, it is also possible to carry out a class with a maximum number of 150 participants in the free version. We clarify that video conferencing is possible, but instant communication is.
