Made for education
Whooshkaa is a leading global enterprise podcasting solution which now includes additional features that are critical for schools.
Private podcast feeds are available via invitation only, school administrators maintain control over access with the ability to invite and remove users. Podcast feeds can be generated for any audience, e.g. all students, students of a particular year or house group, parents, school community and supporters, alumni.

This provides the tools to ensure that students and parents are subscribed to the correct podcast feeds as students move through each year or as their relationship with the school changes.
Enterprise grade developer tools and APIs allow deep integration with existing platforms including school management systems (SMS) and learning management systems (LMS) for a seamless user experience.
We partner with technology leaders including Amazon, Google and Apple to develop innovative audio technology.
