Overview

"Gaggle offers an award-winning suite of productivity, communication, and collaboration tools that engage today's students with today's technology. Our safe online learning environment is accessible at school and on-the-go, leveraging the popularity of social networking and web-based virtual tools to propel your classroom into the 21st century and beyond. Our cloud based environment designed specifically for K-12 education provides access control and filtration of content, with the highest degree of CIPA compliance.

Gaggle is the leading provider of productivity, communication and collaboration tools that safely engage students and has been a leading provider to school districts throughout the United States since 1999. Gaggle currently hosts over 3 million users in the US and 23 countries. The company is an expert in secure communications for schools and has developed proprietary technology and monitoring systems.

In addition, Gaggle is the only provider to include our Human Monitoring Service (HMS) as a part of our subscription service in order to better protect students and allow educators to focus on teaching. The HMS puts the monitoring of blocked messages in Gaggle's hands, eliminating the need for teachers to review questionable communication so they can concentrate on classroom instruction. HMS greatly improves the safety and security of students, both online and in the real world. Gaggle's HMS team has uncovered bullying, drug use, threats of school violence, teen depression, suicidal intentions, and abusive domestic situations. Detecting issues early allows parents and educators to intervene positively on behalf of students.

Gaggle also offers an affordable, hosted email archiving solution that is compatible with Exchange, GroupWise, Google, Live@Edu, Gaggle, and many other email platforms. Gaggle can also archive Google Docs & Spreadsheets, Google Talk, and Google Calendars. The archiving solution is hosted on Gaggle's servers requiring no hardware or software to be installed on the clients' servers. This solution provides anytime, anywhere access to your archive from any computer with an internet connection and compatible web browser. This enables clients to easily store, manage, and retrieve their data with just a few clicks of the mouse, virtually eliminating the burden of FOIA and eDiscovery requests."
