How is HEARD different from online tools, like Edmodo, Schoology or Haiku?

These online tools focus on learning management and student/teacher communication. HEARD is for parents, teachers and school leaders. No students are allowed on the platform. HEARD focuses on connecting members in a school with one another as well as enabling two-way communication and collaboration. HEARD can also be used to help manage communication of other organizations, such as camps, sports teams, book clubs, boards or scouting troops.
