The Classroom Organizer IOS app works in conjunction with Booksource's Classroom Organizer web application to allow educators to organize and track books in their classroom library. The app features barcode scanning functionality to eliminate the need to manually enter ISBN numbers for books. Our extensive database searches the scanned books to find the title of each book, again, eliminating the need to manually type this information.
The Classroom Organizer app is an affordable alternative to purchasing a typical USB scanner. With the Classroom Organizer app educators can simply walk around their classroom and scan each book via their IOS device.
Check your progress as books are scanned by using the "Manage Library" function of the app. View the title, cover image (if available) as well as quantity of a title that has been added. Quickly find items by sorting books by title or quantity. Add your students’ names by using “Manage Students.” Select “Add New Student” for a new student name or choose an existing name from the list to edit or delete. This will be the list of students who are able to check out from the classroom library. To check out a book, choose “Check Out”, select a student name and scan the book.
We've also included the ability to assign locations to books as they are added to a Classroom Organizer account. Simply create locations and choose a location before adding a book to your library. The selected location is maintained until a new selection is made. This allows for quick scanning of multiple books in a single location.
What's New in Version 2.8.13
With this update improvements were made to how Classroom Organizer works with iOS 10 including the scanning capability for checking out books to students.
New Scanner is Terrible
I've used this app for several years, and thank God I already had over 1500 books scanned. The newest update has a terrible scanner. Gone are the days of quickly holding a book up and moving on to the next. Now, you have to move the book and/or camera around and tilt it in different directions just to have it pick up the barcode. I've spent the last 10 minutes trying to add two books to my library. I'd also like to see a feature added that requires students to scan a barcode before returning a book. Others programs I've seen do this, but I don't have a student-teacher this year, so therefore I have no time to rescan all my books into another library organizer.
