Information about the project
Parent Mobile App
Parent Mobile App is designed to facilitate delivery of critical services for parents to make it easier for them to follow up their kids' achievement level, attendance in classrooms and their behavioral discipline, as well as to communicate with those in charge of educational processes in the schools. The app is fully integrated to the educational portal main system and the student’s database. The services are covered for all parents in Oman. All categories and segments of the society are considered while designing Parent App in terms of interfaces by providing both Arabic and English languages. The App integrates with Madrasty app, another internal app in the Ministry. It has been designed to operate on the latest versions of Apple and Android Platforms. It has also been rigorously assessed and tested on to ensure compatibility on a wide variety of devices and platforms. The Parent App offers many services, such as create, maintain, and complete student’s personal profile and school data by providing an appropriate design which could display the student's personal profile including, student picture, student place, date of birth, school number, civil number, name of the school, educational governorate, educational system that student enrolled in. Also, parents are enabled to follow up their Students' performance where the App provides them with a screen showing number of daily classes' timetable, attendance, and reasons for absences. In Oman, the government provides education free of cost and therefore the services provided through the Parent App are free services.
