Small connections
make big differences.

Along is the Teacher-Student Connection Builder—because better conversations make thriving classrooms.

Why Along?

Most teachers don’t have the time and tools to develop the teacher-student connections that foster student success. As educators, we knew something had to change.

So we built Along. It’s a research-based, free-to-use platform that helps teachers reach their students—without piling on extra work. Whether you want to check in with students, kick off the school year with some icebreakers, or see how your class is doing, Along is here to help.

How Along Works

Ask the right questions.

Choose from a library of Along’s questions, developed to create connections, or create your own. Record your response, and share it with students.

Students respond when they want.

They’ll watch your answer, and then submit their own via video, audio, or text—whatever’s most comfortable.

See every response in one place.

You’ll see who has responded, who hasn’t, and reply when you want.
