About ClassroomO

ClassroomO is an international ed-tech platform with headquarters in Ottawa, Canada, and a partner office in India. The ClassroomO logo and ClassroomO.com are trademarks of Webicom Inc. The terms “ClassroomO” and “Webicom” can be used interchangeably and each name corresponds to the same entity. Our platform provides a personalized dashboard to the institute; that gives them the capability to conduct online live classes, track attendance, manage assignments, and many other features. We utilize modern and secure technology to provide students access to class recordings throughout the year.

Changes to Terms of Use

ClassroomO reserves the right to change these Terms of Use at its sole and absolute discretion, from time to time, with or without notice to you. It is entirely your responsibility to keep yourself updated with these changes. If the Terms of Use version has changed, it will pop up when institute admin logs in. The most current version of the Terms of Use will supersede all previous versions. Your use of the ClassroomO Website or continued use of our service after changes are made means that you agree to be bound by such changes.

User Content

Any material or information provided by the institute to the students through dashboard, live class or assignments is owned by the institute. The live sessions of a specific course are recorded by ClassroomO platform and the recording links are available to students of that course only for the whole year. ClassroomO is not responsible for any content shared by the institute.

How ClassroomO Works

Institute Registration

To use the Services, the institute needs to register on the site, and obtain an account and password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account(s), and password(s) and for all activities and liabilities associated with or occurring under your account(s), and password(s). You agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service’s registration form (such information being “Your Data”), (b) maintain and promptly update Your Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. 

Subscription Model

ClassroomO provides platform usage to institutions using a License-based subscription model. The institute picks one license per course. If the institute has multiple courses, then corresponding licenses need to be purchased. 

Institute has the option to pick any of the following license types, based on yearly hours of live classes and associated cost.

Scheduling of Sessions

Institute admin can access the institute dashboard to review the purchased license. The institute admin can connect a teacher to a corresponding course in the institute dashboard. The institute admin has the capability to schedule recurring sessions for a course. The information of students who have purchased the course will be visible on the dashboard.

Student Subscription

Students register themselves on ClassroomO website and get their own account and password. Students pick the institute and course from the available list to get connected with the teacher/institute of their interest. Students can see the scheduled sessions on their dashboard and are able to attend the live class using the provided link. Students can view session recordings on their dashboard itself for the whole year. Students are not allowed to share their credentials with anyone, allow someone else to attend the class on their behalf or share the institute’s study material with others.

Pricing

ClassroomO charges the institute based on license type chosen from the available options. The license purchase enables the institute to use the allotted number of hours of live classes as per their need within the year. If the institute has consumed its allotted hours and needs some extra hours to complete the classes within the same year, ClassroomO has the option to upgrade the license type.

Students purchase the institute course from ClassroomO using our secure payment gateway. The institute controls the course fees and ClassroomO has no control over this. However; ClassroomO deducts a commission from the fees paid by students for every purchase. ClassroomO platform deposits the course fee (after commission deduction) to the institute’s bank account directly. Students get receipts for the commission portion from ClassroomO’s India partner company Stomata Infotech Pvt Ltd.

Institute will bear the payment gateway charges on the payment done by the student.

Taxing

The institute is responsible for filing tax for its received amount after deduction, while ClassroomO is responsible for filing tax for the deducted commission amount.

Refunds

Students must contact the institute directly for any refund request, as it is the institute’s responsibility to entertain any such requests. However, the commission portion of the course fee (charged by ClassroomO) is non-refundable.

The license fee charged by ClassoomO to the institute is non-refundable, even if the institute decides to discontinue the course during the middle of the year.
