Educa

Whenever I have a problem, which isn't very often, the staff are always very helpful and prompt in helping me out and they can always sort out my problem.

Pros

I really like the ease of Educa and how I can use it at work, at home or on my phone. It is a great resource for us to keep in touch with whanau - routines, messages, daily diary and learning stories. Parents are more likely to comment on learning stories as well as giving us stories from home.

Cons

Would like a few more borders, but it isn't a major issue for us.

Best Documentation Program I have Used

Incessant and time consuming paperwork and record keeping are dramatically and easily reduced. Staff are extremely helpful and pleasant.

Pros

Ease of use for documentation and sharing with parents and other educators. Integration with existing business methods was a non event because this easily replaced the numerous other things I was using.

Cons

Some of the things that this program does are not simple for me to understand. More because I am not computer literate enough rather than the program being at fault.

Reasons for Choosing Educa

Cost and ease of use as well as a more well rounded program for my needs

Reasons for Switching to Educa

Initially cost then ease of use once I trialled Educa.

Only one video file per story (Terrible)

Pros

I don't really like Educa. But our daycare uses it. It's better than nothing.

Cons

Only maximum on one video file per child story. Story editor is terrible when it comes to placement of media (video & picture)

Reasons for Switching to Educa

Change of daycare.

Beneficial for Educators and Families

Overall, I am very excited with this EDUCA. I feel this will be very beneficial for our school!

Pros

I love how I can capture the special moments of a child through these learning stories. Adding pictures to this is a plus. Parents can have a better understanding of how their child is learning and experiencing at school.

Cons

I am still learning how to operate this software using my phone and computer. It will take some time.
