How I Use It
I used this product to eliminate the majority of paper that was used in my class. I used the library feature to keep an online handbook available for students in case they forget to bring the hard copy to class. I also used the library to save links and previous examples of work that students could check out. I also gave student surveys and had students post examples of what we talked about in class from outside the classroom. I was surprised that some students preferred using printed materials instead of the online version.
My Take
I will continue to use it in my classroom. Some students would forget their login and password but the teacher can reset it. I liked the website. I found the app to be inferior and would have student login to the full site instead of using the app. I enjoyed the instant feedback from projects and how students could use the app outside of the classroom to show examples of what we talked about in class. It was also nice to share the examples with the entire class.
