Frequently Asked Questions

What is Jakenpoy Corp?

Jakenpoy Corp provides a collection of online activities designed to allow and encourage parents and kids to interact with each other. With today’s prevalent use of electronic devices, we have noticed that parents and kids are—literally and figuratively—to their own devices. At Jakenpoy Corp, we believe that, rather than being a hindrance to interaction, electronic devices can and should be a vehicle for improving the relationship between parents and kids.

Where does the Jakenpoy name come from?

In the Filipino language, jakenpoy refers to the rock-paper-scissors game. This is usually the first game that we are taught as kids. We ourselves vividly remember our parents teaching us how to play it. Jakenpoy was usually played before another game, and as such, it became the icebreaker of sorts and the start of more interaction.

What is Study Buddy?

Study Buddy is a major offering of Jakenpoy Corp. For parents, Study Buddy is a tool to access free ready-made reviewers as well as make new ones. After selecting or creating reviewers, parents then assign these to their kids, who answer them in their own part of the site—Study Buddy Kids. Reports are instantaneous as reviewers are automatically corrected. Parents can also share their reviewers to the community or their friends, thus making the library larger.
Teachers can also take advantage of this free service. For teachers, assigning the work to entire sections is possible. Further, as kids will only receive reviewers from their parents or teachers, this will answer many of the fears and concerns that we share with you. Like you, we consider online privacy and safety of primary importance, especially for children who are of an age that makes them particularly vulnerable on the internet. For more information of how schools can take advantage of Study Buddy, please contact us.

Who authored the free ready-made Reviewers?

In order to serve parents properly, we took great lengths in creating the Reviewers. We patterned our list of topics from the official grade school curriculum of the Department of Education. We then contracted teachers from prominent Philippine schools to develop the questions and answers. We currently have Reviewers that cover the major subjects: English, Filipino, Math, Science and Araling Panlipunan.

How much does Study Buddy cost?

Study Buddy is 100% FREE for Parents, Teachers and Kids—made possible through the valuable help of sponsors and advertisers.
