Class Dojo Expands with Raise of New VC

One of the biggest challenges that parents face today is trying to stay on top of their children’s education. This is particularly true for families that have two working parents as it provides less time to discuss progress with teachers. Fortunately, a new mobile application is changing the way that parents, teachers, students, and administrators can connect.

 

The newest application that is giving use in classrooms across the world is Class Dojo. Class Dojo is a mobile application that has been working to make parent teacher conference is effectively obsolete. The application provides a means for parents and teachers to communicate on a regular basis.

 

Teachers are able to use the application to post a variety of information about the classroom and academic process. This family includes posting class schedules, upcoming projects, grades, and recent test scores. Teachers are also able to use the application to post pictures of the classroom, which allows it to effectively act like a virtual your book that is updated throughout the year.

 

Parents are able to use the application to either read postings from the teacher, send messages to the teacher and other parents, or participate in a variety of open forums. This gives even the busiest parents and opportunity to communicate with all other members of the classroom. Students are then able to use the application to work on class assignments, submit homework, socialize with other students, and complete a number of other tasks.

 

While the ClassDojo application has been popular with all parties of the classroom, it has also been popular with investors as well. The company, which was founded just five years ago, has already raised over $31 million in venture capital. This includes a recent $21 million investment, which has raised the potential value of the company well over $100 million.

 

Investors of the company are very impressed with the reach that the company has already achieved. Class Dojo has reported that their products are already used by more than 80,000 different schools across the globe. This has included all K-12 programs in all 50 states. Investors also see a considerable amount of future expansion for the application, both internationally and domestically. Class Dojo is also focusing on expanding their product line by developing a number of new applications. Most of the newly-raised equity will go towards marketing and software development.
