JoeZoo Inc. (“JoeZoo” or the “Company”)
We incorporate Privacy by Design: We purposefully design privacy and data protection into our app and every feature before We release our JoeZoo Product.
JoeZoo Inc. is a maker of educational software applications.
JoeZoo Express is its add-on application to Google Docs that makes it simpler for Authorized School Personnel to give high quality feedback or grades for any written assignment. In addition, this add-on allows students to engage with feedback from both Authorized School Personnel, peers and while self-assessing their own work.
“JoeZoo App” is an application that makes it easier for Authorized School Personnel to build and manage grading rubrics and feedback comment sets that they can instantly, and securely use in the JoeZoo Express add-on and, if they choose, share across their school or district. Other Users beyond Authorized School Personnel can track student progress provided they receive the appropriate authorization from the Authorized School Personnel.
The JoeZoo App and the JoeZoo Express add-on are Google Products approved apps and can be installed by Authorized School Personnel or schools, on behalf of students, from the Google Apps Marketplace.
Access to the JoeZoo Product is through the Google Products, JoeZoo App or JoeZoo Express Add-on Sign-on Pages.
Documentation on the functionality of the JoeZoo Product for registered schools and Users can be found here.
