Launched in 2011, the ClassDojo application is a new phenomenon that is taking over the learning process and converting it into a seamless system that all stakeholders can appreciate. The application helps to streamline communication between students, teachers and parents and is an innovative project that is aiming to make the classroom an adorable place for all.
In its Series B session, the company raised $21 million, which is going into further development of the platform. Before ClassDojo was introduced, parents would only get in touch with teachers once or twice a year, but this has changed because the application is offering a real-time messaging experience that will allow teachers to share information with parents any time.
Two years after its creation, at least 70,000 schools had acquired the application. Teachers are given free access and as much as 2 in 3 schools across the U.S. are now using ClassDojo to enhance communication between them and parents. ClassDojo has created a community that unites students, teachers and parents and is looking to grow further until all the schools across the country are served.
Most people using the application have kids from kindergarten to 8th grade classes and despite the fact the startup has not generated revenue yet, the founders are focused on distributing it to more teachers and parents.
According to the founders, making revenue off the data of the users of the application is not part of their objective as they are looking to make the learning experience better in the cheapest way. However, they are still in the process of creating premium features that would benefit the parents at a small fee subscription.
ClassDojo has attracted investors among them GSV, VC, SoftTech, Shashta Ventures, General Catalyst and SignalFire.
