Automatically create student profiles
Olark automatically saves information you gather during your online conversations. You can use pre-chat surveys to request information from your website visitors before a chat begins. Even better, pre-chat surveys are fully customizable, so you can collect the details that matter you to, like grade level and residency.
Keep student information safe and secure
Olark is privacy-first. From features that automatically purge personally identifiable information to ease FERPA compliance, to standard GDPR compliance internal policies. From day one, we designed Olark to ease compliance and simplify deployment.
Stay compliant with ADA
Olark’s chat box works in common screen readers and was built with WCAG 2.1 in mind, and our default themes use high contrast colors. We also audit our accessibility, so you don’t have to.
