Inspired Classroom Mentor Partners can create and house content on a software platform, MentorIC.
Using MentorIC’s unique, four-way collaborative system, students and teachers connect with Mentor Partner organization education coordinators to experience amazing content and activities. Teachers have all of the information and background they need to guide their students and the learner can submit projects for feedback from the organization experts. The platform features a manager dashboard making MentorIC a subscription-based, easily scalable, and sustainable SaaS product.
MentorIC software captures data from educators/mentors and learners while attaining COPPA compliance and best practice. Mentor Partners can pull reports on the number of learners, the number of mentors, how educators/mentors are using the platform with learners, where they are located, and if using in public K-12, what percentage of students qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch services. Mentor Partners can use project management tools to help create dynamic experiences, track engagement, and gather anecdotal records.
