What is Koala?

Koala is aimed at students and teachers with Zoom fatigue. It is a new collaborative learning space for uploading PDF's, creating sticky notes and accessing programs, but importantly gives the teacher full control over what actions the students can and can't do.

Koala is a more engaging and powerful alternative than Zoom. You can still use Google Classroom, Seesaw, Wordwall, Whizzimo, or whatever web app you prefer in your Koala virtual classroom. Our development process is centered around teachers and students. We work with our teacher community to implement features they need and listen to our students to keep Koala fun!

A major advantage of Koala is to allow the teacher to customize their classroom. We are working on creating more useful tools and interactive objects in-game for our users.

Used Koala daily for 4-6 months

May 2022

There is nothing about the product that I do not like. I have been teaching online for nearly six years and have never seen anything like it. In fact, I would say it is more effective than in-person at times.

Donna Whiffen found Koala:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Autistic student who does not like to turn on his camera is comfortable working through the avatar. He is more engaged than before I used the platform.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    I am able to bring in supplemental material such as videos and PDFs. I am able to create "classrooms" for various subjects and students are able to interact with the material.
  • Significantly improves teacher wellbeing
    It's so much fun that it doesn't feel like work. I use the platform 20 hours a week currently.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Without a doubt, the product sells itself.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Students are able to learn and be willing participants in the classroom. They are engaged 100 percent of the time because they are interacting constantly with sticky notes, avatars, text boxes, clip arts, videos, etc.

Used Koala weekly for 4-6 months

I have already recommended Koala to many teachers

Katie found Koala:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Koala is AMAZING for student collaboration. In particular, the co-browsing tool allows both teachers and students to directly interact with a shared web browser - so students can click, drag-and-drop, write, etc directly on web-based curriculum slides and we can play games together. The Koala whiteboard system is also excellent, with huge potential for teachers to design activities that students can really engage directly with during the lesson. For me personally, I use web-based slides and found passive screensharing via Zoom to just be very non-interactive for kids. So Koala has totally revolutionalised that! I also jump off the slides to the whiteboard if my students need some extra practice or to clarify new ideas. I upload worksheets here too, which the student can annotate with their answers during the class.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    I can prepare lesson activities in advance on the shared whiteboard, so in class everything is set up and ready to go. Additionally, students engage so much better with Koala compared to other online classroom/video conferencing platforms so we are able to make much greater progress during class.
  • Significantly improves teacher wellbeing
    The Koala team is incredibly supportive - they've jumped on calls to fix any tech issues and do regular "coffee chats" where teachers can share ideas and ask questions directly to the core team. Their Facebook group is also just such a supportive community. This really helps me as a teacher because I feel more confident and comfortable in the online classroom, and have less stress over the technology side.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Students engage much better in class, resulting in greater progress. Koala Go has only been available for a few months so I don't have any concrete data yet, but already I am seeing an improvement in students understanding and answers during class.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Koala's marketplace system has a huge collection of pre-made lessons and games, which help me build students' knowledge through more structured learning.

PS Learning Zone, United States of America

Used Koala daily for 0–3 months

May 2022

Koala’s strength lies with its creators and team of professionals. They listen and communicate with teachers and tutors. They are constantly making updates and improving Koala based on what teachers need to be more effective and on positive student outcomes.

Polly Stoup found Koala:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    My elementary-aged ESL learners have started to make progress in their English Literacy skills. With the shared browser or co-browser function, students are able to drag items and click while we are working through skills on a game board or in the interactive curriculum I use. We can share interactive books where I can teach them decoding strategies directly in a 1:1 situation. In the activity boards, we are able to use the sticky notes and text boxes to work on creating sentences together and creating words through letter tiles that teach phonetic principles.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Koala has made learning the tech tools very intuitive, which has saved me time and allowed me more time to devote to planning fun lessons instead of learning a complicated platform. Although I plan my instruction with specific goals in mind, the way that Koala is structured with the ability to load pngs and pdfs right into the activity whiteboards has made me more efficient. I can load my materials ahead of time or I can pull up additional resources to teach something on-the-spot when a student needs additional support.
  • Significantly improves teacher wellbeing
    The Koala team offers outstanding customer service. They listen and take action when teachers have a need for a functionality change. This is in stark contrast to what most teachers and independent tutors have experienced in the public school or company sectors. When teachers are heard, it boosts moral. It provides encouragement to keep going. Koala provides an effective way for private tutors to earn income through an amazing platform that keeps students coming back for classes. In turn, the income received helps provide for living expenses. On a personal note, the income I receive from teaching independently goes directly to purchasing my health insurance. The premiums are very costly, so being able to use a robust platform to help me with my income makes a difference in me being able to keep clients and to market effectively to gain more students. The invoicing that Koala added made collecting the income from tutoring very easy and was an added bonus to an already outstanding product.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Koala has created a product with Koala Go that allows my ESL students with tablets to have a kinesthetic learning experience. It is appealing to auditory learners as well because I can present videos and songs into lessons to assist in their learning. The ability to move letter tiles on sticky notes and to change the drawing tool thickness to write with white inside colored rectangles also simulates kinesthetic learning. The accessibility for my ESL learners will lead to more equitable language learning and, ultimately, help them attain the English skills they will need to navigate the world whether that is in higher education, the business/professional realm or for personal fulfillment through international travel.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    My ESL learners have additional conversational and speaking practice using the playground, which makes it fun for them to ask and answer questions as we are moving about together in the virtual world. It is building confidence as they are speaking and having fun.

Koala Go has changed my teaching view completely! With kids only sitting online during our pandemic they are always bored but with Koala they are engaged and want more and more! Students overall are happier and more interactive in class. The Koala Super team also makes it a breeze to communicate to and they are very eager and helpful!

Tami found Koala:

    Students get to be interactive on each slide, play interactive learning games against other students in class or against the teacher. The variety of different learning materials you can use in the shared Browser is PHENOMENAL!

  • Significantly improves attainment
    Having so many games for vocabulary, grammar ,spelling and so on makes it interesting for the student and with the great reward system the students tend to learn and focus more and achieve more because they want the awesome rewards!
  • Significantly builds student knowledge

I am SO glad that I found Koala when I did. After all of the virtual learning taking place over the last few years, parents are often reticent to (drag their kids, kicking and screaming!) to do one more virtual instruction mode. But as soon as the kids see it, that changes!

Sharon C found Koala:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Students are engaged, and better able to focus and take part in the lesson in the Koala platform than other platforms.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Having template classrooms saved helps in preparation time, and implication of a lesson.
  • Significantly improves teacher wellbeing
    Less to worry about/pay for = more sleep at night.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Students progress through materials just as quickly as in live settings.

There are not enough stars in the sky to describe why I love Koala. Their platform has enhanced not just my life but my students. They look forward to tutoring!!! The graphics, updates, developers, support team, ease of use, student engagement, and layout are a few reasons I gave 10 stars:)

Janie Zembrodt found Koala:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    My students are always engaged with the lesson we are working on in Koala.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    If a quickly need to show a visual of something the student does not know, I can quickly make a "sticky note" and keep it up during class as a reminder.
  • Significantly improves teacher wellbeing
    Tutoring is explicitly based on individual needs. Without Koala it became monotonous and I felt like all my lessons were the same. Koala allows me to be creative!!! Each classroom can be filled with individual items for the student.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    My students like to walk around their classroom or draw on the board. Having this accessible incentive for them to finish their work is wonderful!
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Because the classroom is visually stimulating, all my students retain so much more of the lesson than previously.

Koala has been a fun way to engage my students for learning to read and spell. The ability to make and move their own avatar makes them feel like they aren't just sitting at a desk behind a computer.
