Cybersecurity firm Mybusybee Incorporated plans to launch BeeSuite, a short message service (SMS) learning platform for students who have no Internet connection amid the COVID-19 crisis by next week.
“Because not everybody is equipped for online learning, SMS-learning technology via Beesuite will be able to bridge this gap,” Mybusybee founder and chief executive officer Rico Hernandez pointed out.
Under the BeeSuite platform, teachers can use either an existing or a dedicated SIM card to insert in a GSM modem stick that can be connected to a computer or laptop.
The features consist of personalized SMS, scheduled messages, advanced inbox filters, bubble conversations, virtual class discussions, automatic grade notifications, virtual backup, automated lessons, and computerized exams.
Hernandez said that students could then access the lessons, ask questions, and retain access to lessons anytime. All students need is “an ordinary phone,” may it be a multitap phone or smartphone to “start learning.”
The BeeSuite Academy, which will be available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, will then automatically detect the GSM modem stick and will be ready to go without Internet connections. The SMS message is sent to students of 50 within 1 to 2 minutes of sending.
