Our free and user friendly app maker guides you through the step by step process of building your own app, all that is required is for you to input your class and school information. We have included seven pages that you can use and of course you may add or subtract any page you like.
The About/Syllabus Page is designed to give basic information. As teachers and administrators, you can share general information with students and parents through text and images. Administrators can include information about when the school was founded, history, facts and accolades. Classroom teachers can include a class description, necessary book titles, or even a course syllabus. The About / Syllabus Page gives your students and parents the information they need to know at the touch of a button.
The Professors Page is a menu style page designed for you to post a professor’s name and then his / her department or the classes taught. After you add multiple professors, you can group them by department or in alphabetical order. This information can prove invaluable to students and parents when trying to contact a specific professor or schedule a meeting. Teachers and professors, you can provide basic information about yourself and the courses you teach on this page with our free app builder.
Let your students and parents know about upcoming events or assignments through the Schedule Page. This feature is possibly one of the most valuable pages for schools and teachers. All administrators and teachers know how hard it is to get information out to parents and students in a timely fashion, but this not only lets them know, but gives them a place to go and check for updates about time/schedule changes as well. Just plug in the date and time of your event, and it will be displayed in this page for easy access by your parents and students.
The Appointments Page enables you to create a form that students can use to be sent directly to the e-mail address you provide. The student can fill out this form, requesting to schedule an appointment with you. This page is adaptable to almost any need you might have. Create a form for homework questions, parent comments, or any other useful request forms that might help your students and their parents keep in touch with you.
Through the Videos Page, you can share videos from YouTube or in MP4 format with your students and parents. Does your school have a virtual tour? Did you find a great video that illustrates your lesson from the day? Was your school just featured on a news outlet? Want to share a video presentation your students created? No matter what your need, students and parents alike will enjoy this feature on your app and it is a great way to collect useful videos together to promote your school and the education of your students.
