For educators across the world, the classroom is now online—in fact, a recent study by G2 found that demand for virtual classrooms has grown 200%—with teachers utilizing virtual classrooms enabled with video, voice, and chat to reach students and offer a semblance of normalcy in a trying time. Students are accessing one-on-one tutoring and aid remotely; schools and educators are able to access online, remote proctoring services to ensure tests and assessments can move forward.
In the nonprofit community, the outpouring of support and the ways in which organizations are adapting to this crisis has been nothing short of incredible. Support hotlines across the nation are being inundated with increased demand, and volunteers are rising to the challenge; organizations are utilizing video meet-ups to check-in with at-risk populations and offer support.
The ways in which our world has expanded while under such restriction is heartening, especially at a time when we all could use a little positivity.
To empower these critical organizations as they create and deepen connections to the individuals they serve, Twilio is excited to launch the Twilio Video Boost program, offering three months free usage of our Video product for new customers (or existing customers with a new video need) in the healthcare, education, and nonprofit sectors responding to this crisis if they sign up by June 30.
We’re living through a trying time, but opportunities to connect are everywhere around us. Twilio is honored to support healthcare providers, educators, and nonprofits as they evolve to overcome the challenges they face.
