Unlock Student Potential with Octoparse

# Retrieve web data at scale with ease

Students should have the data resource they need to fulfill the learning purpose, and coding skills shouldn’t be the roadblock. Octoparse is a no-code platform that enables teachers and students to retrieve data from hundreds of websites in weeks, not years.

# Procure web data collaboratively anywhere

Students can leverage cloud-based storage to configure scraping tasks or access data in the cloud, whether learning at school or from home. Contribute to group assignments with more flexibility without physical restrictions.

# Keep all students connected with one platform

Every student has his/her unique definition of valuable data. We respect diversity as much as collaboration. Octoparse enables everyone to have an individual account to create a unique scraping project while keeping all students connected within a centralized hub.
