With the summer coming up, and the school-by-phone will not be used now, we created the following five options.

  1. Keep everything open as is, server and numbers, but you can lower the servers power because you will not have any heavy use. The price for this would by $25 per month. It should be able to handle 30-60 calls at once. We will continue charging per minute. We will invoice it once per month.
  2. Close the system, but keep the numbers and all settings ready to open on moment’s notice. The price for this would be $20 per month. There will be no per minute charge as the system is closed.
  3. Backup the system to an off-site backup, and keep the phone numbers. We will be able to restore the servers within a few days of requesting it. The price for this will be a onetime backup fee of $40. A $5 per month charge for keeping the numbers. There will be no per minute charge as the system is closed.
  4. Backup the system to an off-site backup, and cancel the the phone numbers. We will be able to restore the servers within a few days of requesting it. We will provide new numbers at that time. The price for this will be a onetime backup fee of $40. There will be no per minute charge as the system is closed.
  5. Just delete the system and the numbers. If we will need it again, we will pay again the setup fee of $50 per class.

For a $100 one-time fee we can zip all the recordings for you and send them to you.

Due to the current situation, we are introducing a School-By-Phone System.

The system currently has the following options. (We might add more options as the situation evolves.)

When calling in students need to choose their class from the main menu. (For an additional fee of $10 per class, each class can have their own phone number).

For example 1 for כתה א.

In the class menu, there will be the following 4 options.

1) Enter a live conference. Students will hear music until the rebbe enters the conference. The rebbe gets a special pin that he needs to enter when entering the conference. In the conference, a student can unmute himself by pressing *1. Pressing again *1 will mute him back. The rebbe can mute everyone by pressing *0. He can unmute everyone by pressing *0 again. (Optionally we can set any class conference to not have a unmute option)

2) Listen to the previously recorded conferences. Pressing # will move forward with 1 minute, * will rewind 1 minute. 1 will pause and pressing 1 again will continue playing. Pressing 3 will restart the current file from the beginning. Pressing 0 will move to the next recording. Pressing 00 will go back to the prev menu.

3) Will be able to listen to recordings left by the Menahel or Rebbi.  Pressing # will move forward with 1 minute, * will rewind 1 minute. 1 will pause and pressing 1 again will continue playing. Pressing 3 will restart the current file from the beginning. Pressing 0 will move to the next recording. Pressing 00 will go back to the prev menu.

4) Option to leave a message for the rebbe.

 

The price for each class setup is $50 (or $60 if you want a separate number for each class).

There is also a per minute fee of 0.005 (half a penny). The minutes are calculated per incoming caller. So for a class of 29 students and 1 rebbe, a 60-minute conference would come out to 60 x 0.005 x 30 = $9.

The minutes are calculated in 6-second increments.

For each class setup we will take a $100 deposit for the minutes.

We will be adding integration with JL in the next few days.

You will be able to see in the JL system by each student when they called in and how long they were on the phone.

Also how long they listened to each recording.

Multiple new options have been added to the School By Phone System.

B"h It continues to work great without any issues. (Clear, No Busy Signal, ETC.)

The following is a highlight of the new options. We will send I detailed email tomorrow.

 

1) Option of personal pin numbers for each student, so you can get a report of each student separately.

2) Web-based conference console, where you can see a list of students that are now in the conference. It also indicates which of the students is now talking if everyone is unmuted. You can mute and unmute each one separately or all together. and more ...

3) Raise your hand feature. A student can press a button on the phone to indicate to the teacher that he has a question, The teacher will hear a sound. The teacher can press a button to toggle thru one by one all students that have a question.

4)  Online link to upload files to a box.

5) Chavruse system, where each chavrusa learns over the phone system, and the magid shiur/rebbe can move from one chavrusa to the next to listen in.

 

and many more add ons.
