Squarecap Opens Access for All COVID-19 School Closures

With the spread of COVID-19 causing schools to cancel in-person classes for the semester, Squarecap is committed to helping both teachers and students achieve success and has decided to make our platform available free-of-charge for any classes transitioning to online learning that need to adopt our tool mid-semester.
This extended access will run through July 1st and will include all available features at zero cost to students. Squarecap is a valuable tool for taking attendance, asking questions and allowing students to post their questions in a semi-anonymous forum. Squarecap can also be paired with other platforms such as Zoom or WebEx to create a two-way line of communication that can be monitored and easily exported to existing learning management systems such as Canvas, Blackboard, D2L, and Moodle.
While many schools have already moved to a fully online model, others are still in the preparation stages as they wait to see how the situation develops locally. Here are a few points to consider as you are making necessary preparations for this change. Using Squarecap to Enable Online Learning: 5 Things to Consider
To begin using Squarecap for online learning, set up your free teacher account, and your students will be able to use free of charge for the remainder of the semester. You can also check out our getting started materials here or schedule a session with one of our specialists.
*Please note that although we have granted students free access to Squarecap for the time being due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our standard two-week refund policy still applies to subscriptions purchased before the free period started. We therefore will not be accepting refund requests for subscriptions purchased before February 27th, 2020.
