Here are the 2 features that were requested:
1.) SMS capability: The ability to notify people via text messages when there is new content on the site. The sytem currently sends out emails when there is new content on the site. We think there maybe a way to do send text messages easily and quickly. The downside is that text messages are not free for the users. We continue to research other viable options.
2.) Localization: A teacher requested that a page be viewable in mulitiple languages. We think this is a fantastic idea as language shouldn’t be a barrier in getting information to parents. There are 2 ways of doing this effectively:
a.) The author posts the content in multiple languages.
b.) The community helps and translates the page/post for others.
Both have their pros and cons. Which option do you prefer and why?
