New Registration Module

Using this module School Districts can setup forms that can filled online by the parents of new or Existing Students. This module was developed to accommodate a contact-less and safe environment adopted by schools throughout the world.

  • For New Students, a link on main login screen will give them direct access to the configured forms.

  • For Existing students, the forms will pop up automatically on parent login.

  • Entries to these forms goes into a separate database table which can be moved to the main system after appropriate verification.

  • The forms can track any Student and Guardian demographic information.

  • In addition to the fillable forms, Districts can also post any additional forms and messages that can be viewed/downloaded by parents.

  • Web-Links provide options for parents to upload necessary documents required by the registration forms onto the cloud for safe access.

Changes to accommodate E-Learning and Remote Instruction

Due to COVID-19, schools have moved to e-learning and remote instruction. At WGS, we want to ease the burden of this transition and provide functionality which will help and assist the schools during these challenging times.

Here are some of the features we have developed to help schools with this transition:

    • Students can use their Schedule tab to check-in to a class.

    • Teachers can view who has checked-in to a class, when they did that and mark their class attendance accordingly.

    We have built an integration to Google Classroom to seamlessly send Course, Rosters and Assignments and retrieve Assignments and grades.

    • Import grades back from CSV file generated by Google Classroom – This should be available by the end of April, 2020.

    • Manual sync and retrieval of Assignments and Grades from Google Classrooms for a Course initiated by the Teacher

    • Automate the sync of Courses, Rosters and Assignments to and from Google Classrooms for all courses

  • Google Hangouts Meet Integration

We are working on building an integration to Google Hangouts Meet to provide options for teachers to initiate Hangouts Meets session with students in their classes.
