Fedena is meant to assist in the management of schools or campuses. You can use the app to help in various aspects of management, administration and learning activities. The app is used by high schools, kindergartens, e-learning facilities, training centers, seminaries, universities and other similar institutions. The basic modules of Fedena allow you to manage attendance, news, admissions, timetables, examinations, student details and more.
More than 40,000 schools, campuses and other institutions worldwide use Fedena in basic management and the company says the free app is downloaded some 200 times every day. The institutions that use Fedena cater to more than 20 million students. Fedena was originally developed in India by Foradian Techologies. The company open sourced the software, which was designed using Ruby on Rails, and it is now maintained by the open source community. Widespread favorable media coverage, particularly in the press specialized in education or in learning in poorer countries, has greeted the app.
The open source nature of this massive app makes it extremely comprehensive and adaptable. Schools and other institutions can adapt this software to their own needs with ease. The wide variety of functions further distinguishes the app. From examination records to the ability to send out bulk SMSs to students, parents and staff make the app a truly comprehensive solution for educational institutions.
The scope of the app is complex, and so is its use. The app is meant to be implemented by IT professionals from the various educational institutions that use it. A number of companies and private individuals also provide professional support services to educational institutions to install, customize and use the app.
