Q. Is Spiral free? A. Each of the basic features on Spiral are free and will remain free to individual teacher accounts forever. What this means is that everything you can see when you first sign up is free, up until three classrooms. We will be launching the Spiral Pro Teacher and Spiral Pro School upgrades soon, which, for a very small annual fee, will give access to our flipped learning features and extra features in the apps. Spiral School/District licensing is also available, which includes integration with your school's systems (eg. Moodle).
Q. Is it safe? Where are your servers? A. Our main servers are based in New York. We are committed to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) to ensure Spiral is a safe environment for students. If your school is based in Singapore, please be informed that we are launching a Singapore based server soon.
