Scheduling API for Digital Courses and e-learning

The world of work, learning, and play has been forever changed. What was once a source of anxiety has now begun to bear fruit, showing us that the new normal is a frontier with some exciting opportunities for training and learning.

As businesses and institutions acclimatize to their new environment, attempting to schedule classes around the world is becoming a costly problem to fix.

Spurwing's time management solutions and API systems can help institutions in this transition: offering scheduling interfaces that can even help businesses open themselves to the training systems of the future.

How can Spurwing's API System Help Students Access Classes Around the World?

Navigating World Time Zones with Ease

Distance learning and work from home have spread students, teachers, or tutors around the world. And, for perhaps the first time, businesses are having to contend with digital classrooms full of learners in entirely different time zones.

Spurwing's Scheduling API can keep all your participants up-to-date and on time with our automated notifications – available to send out at any time of the day.

Simply customise our pre-designed templates (or disable them and craft your own) and send out booking confirmations or reminders via e-mail and SMS. This will reduce the risk of missed appointments, keeping your classes on the schedule and your trainees learning.

Making Scheduling Convenient, Intuitive, and Efficient

Best of all: there is no need to overhaul your institution's digital infrastructure to do it.

The Spurwing Scheduling API was specifically crafted to solve these problems while delivering a feature set that integrates neatly into your institution's existing software, communication channels, workflows to maximise productivity and appeal to your participants.

You can enjoy a series of innovative, bespoke applications, features, and integrations to keep your online classes and digital training courses running smoothly:

  • Fully two-way synced with Google Calendar, Outlook, and iCal, enjoy one-click add-to-calendar links and make full use of the scheduling systems your participants are already using to organise their time.
  • Discord, Slack, and Facebook Messenger bots ensure that the API is fully optimizable to whichever workflows your training courses are making use of.

Hi :) I'm glad you brought that up. Our core product is the Scheduling API, but we do experiment with voice related solutions (voice recognition) by Google and WitAI. However, your company is more into voice calling / voip right? Maybe we have some overlapping opportunities on working together?
