Fedena 3.8

Analytics Dashboard? Enquiry Module? Sound something which you have been waiting for a very long time.

But finally the wait is over, we are here with our new release Fedena 3.8 in which we are not just introducing 2 new features but also bringing 14 feature enhancements and 50+ issues fixed. This time we have named our release Prometheus, a significant perturber of Atlas.

With this release, you can view and keep track of all the applications regarding new admission, enquiries of parents/students about courses, collect fees amount in advance and later use it for the future fee’s payment and much more.

But before we jump to the exciting part, we would like you to know that this time we have dedicated this release to an educator “Who Promoted Storytelling”, Vivian Gussin Paley, a pioneering teacher and widely acclaimed author who emphasized the importance of storytelling in early childhood development.

She wrote 13 books about their social and intellectual development, including how they learn from telling stories, and received a MacArthur “genius” grant in recognition of her work. Her best-known works include “You Can’t Say You Can’t Play” (1993), the title referring to a rule she laid down in her classroom to teach children about rejection.
