Senso For Microsoft Teams Chat: Safeguarding Students
Senso answers frequently asked questions regarding Microsoft teams chat monitoring and safeguarding software.
In a post-pandemic age, millions – if not billions – of us have had to adapt to a new normal. The Covid-19 pandemic had forced about half the world’s population into some form of a lockdown by April 2020, and online learning was a sudden and necessary arrival.
Microsoft Teams Usage
Microsoft Teams has experienced explosive growth over the last year and a half.
Starting with 32 million active daily users on March 12th 2020, this number had more than doubled by April 27th 2021 to 145 million daily active users (Statista). With so many lockdowns and restrictions in place, educators and learners were forced to adapt to a new style of learning very quickly, and not all are completely comfortable with Teams as of yet.
Senso have produced a comprehensive online monitoring software that seamlessly blends with Microsoft Teams, recognising the increased need for safeguarding staff and students when learning is done at a distance.
Unfortunately, the internet is rife with explicit and harmful content, and educators have a duty of care towards their students. That’s why Senso offers a safeguarding app designed to identify violations through the use of A.I generated software. Wondering what we do to keep you and your classroom safe? Read on to find your FAQs answered.
