Why Choose Mattermost?
Uniting students in a Mattermost channel provides a searchable archive of relevant information, and a social group to go to for support. From where to find books and research materials to connecting to the school Wifi instructions, your community saves time and cost letting students ask and answer their own questions.
From sports teams to classroom groups, Mattermost provides a platform to connect and self-organize. Students can communicate in a social-setting that builds cross-team relationships and increases information flow.
History and Context
When you share conversations in Mattermost, they come embedded in surrounding conversations, showing the history and evolution of every project and topic. That knowledge lets new team members make a bigger impact in less time.
Evergreen Reading Lists
Provide students with up-to-date reading lists containing messages and conversations with tags like #new-student-reading and #new-student-setup. When new content seems appropriate for a new student, any member of the school can add a tag so it’s added to the reading list.
More done in less time
Stop wasting time opening, closing and categorizing emails. Use topic-based messaging to start your day with what matters most. Set up alerts on mentions of your name and chosen keywords to prioritize what’s important.
Connect learners and teachers
Communicate fluidly across web, PC and phones with file sharing and instant search.
