How can we help?
oktopi is built for committed educators who want to plan, organize and save their content in one space, benefit from collaborative features, advanced analytics and easy online payment options so they can focus on making a better impact in their students’ lives.
Navigate easily through our platform at your own pace. Our friendly video tutorials and written articles within the platform will guide you so you can benefit from our features and enhance your teaching experience. You can also register to one of our demos to get direct insight into oktopi.ai from our dedicated team members, or chat with us directly through our chat button within the platform.
Inviting students to your class is a click away! You can choose to publish your class to our “Explore Classes” page where it can be viewed by students browsing for new classes to take, or invite your own students by clicking the invite button within your class and sharing the link with your students via email or posting on your social media channels.
You can keep your class private by not publishing it to the Explore Classes page, and instead sharing the invite with only your students.
In the Teachers icon on the left menu, you can invite other educators by simply sharing the link directly or through emails. They will receive an invitation to join your school or institution. You can then allow different privileges to the educators if you are the admin. It’s that easy!
For the best experience, we recommend accessing the platform via web on desktop or laptop. We’re currently working on a mobile app, but if you need to access the platform on mobile web we suggest using it in landscape mode for a better experience for now.
While this step is optional, connecting your lessons and material to objectives allows you to gain access to advanced analytics to track student progression and personalize the learning experience. You’ll also show students what they’ll be learning when they take your class and complete the material. Use our preset standards to connect your material to official curricula.
One of the best things about oktopi is that you can curate and combine any type of resources for your students, including both pre-recorded and live sessions! We’ve integrated zoom, and when you upgrade your free account you’ll be able to conduct live sessions with your students directly within the oktopi platform. But oktopi allows you to do more than that! You can plan your lessons and learning materials in advance or on the go, just like in a real class environment.
The core benefit of our platform is not just creating another online class. We help educators get organized. Oktopi is a flexible workspace that allows you to go from planning your class, curating content, preparing lessons, to communicating with your peers and students, getting paid, and real-time adapting to your student’s learning journeys with analytics features.
The process involves 5-6 easy steps, including inviting your students onboard! You’re actually creating an entire journey and not just a class. You can customize your students’ journey by adding or removing steps, based on how you want your classes to be!
Oktopi is a specialized educator workspace. We bring the technology to help you organize, plan, create, communicate, etc., but you bring the content you want your students to explore while learning.
The price you set for your class is totally up to you. You need to consider where you are based, what you teach, size of the cohort, the time you plan to spend to prepare material for your class, curate content, interact with students, and so on. You can also ask our community of teachers on our Facebook group for advice.
You can add your class on our Explore Classes page by simply clicking “Publish to Explore Classes” in the Class Detail page. By doing so, your class will be public and discoverable to potential students. You can easily remove your class by clicking “Remove from Explore Classes” in the Class Detail page so only students you invite will have access to it.
Easily browse through the Explore Classes page by clicking the oktopi icon in the left-hand bar within the platform and search for your own class to view it the way students would.
Absolutely! We embrace life-long learners. Simply create a student account and join a class of your liking from our Explore Classes page, or enroll using an invite link you received from a teacher.
oktopi is the ideal workspace for educational institutions and independent educators who already have a teaching activity.
If you need help in getting organized under one platform, and benefit from a flexible space that allows you to adapt, and focus on driving your student’s journeys forward, then oktopi is for you!
