** District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Product, 2014, 2015, & 2016!
eBackpack for Parents provides easy access to your child's school work with push notifications* (premium feature) to alert you when an assignment is past due or a due soon, a new grade has been returned, and much more. This app allows you to see your child's upcoming assignments, what and when your students submitted something, and the returned reviews; all in real time, not weeks later.
eBackpack for Parents is available on our website as well in a fully unlocked manner without the push notifications and app experience.
eBackpack is the leading platform to Assign, Collect, Review, Annotate, and Return student work, assignments, and assessments easily to support student/teacher collaboration in a paperless classroom. eBackpack includes multimedia PDF support, layered PDF, annotation edit, voice, and video capabilities!
eBackpack for Parents (Premium) lets you easily:
* Receive push notifications to alert of you late, upcoming, and new assignments.
* See if your child has any incomplete assignments due tomorrow.
* See what your student submitted and the teachers returned
eBackpack, winner of the prestigious Readers' Choice Top 100 Products in Education award, offers a digital locker that is full-featured, easy to use, and E-Rate eligible. eBackpack goes beyond a storage-only solution by providing workflow and collaboration: homework drop boxes supporting student turn in, teacher review, and online discussion. It is safe, secure, and accessible 24/7 from any internet connected computer with modules that support the iPad and iPhone with WebDAV and integrate to PC/Mac computers to work as a network drive. eBackpack offers enhancement modules to integrate with multiple Student Information Systems (SIS) and LDAP / Active Directory for authentication.
Note: This application only allows monitoring of work completed in an existing eBackpack student account. Use of eBackpack for Parents to monitor a child's activity requires access codes which may be received from your child's school. Depending on your schools subscription, an in-app purchase may be required to unlock the full visibility of assignment details, submissions, reviews, and for push notifications. The home page with a summary of number of assignments that are coming up and those that are late will be available without purchase regardless of subscription. Access to the same information without some of the app specific capabilities is available at no charge through our website.
Multiple bug fixes & tweaked the layout a bit.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is poorly designed. The student version is much more user friendly. The parent app does not display full PDFs on the screen (can only see some a portion of the document on my iPad), and I get a pop up error message ("An error has occurred") each time I move to a new screen. Stick to the free parent web page. It's not that great either, but at least you won't be paying $10 for an inferior product.
Freezes a lot
This app freezes a lot and is not easy to use at all. Like the idea of being up to date on what my child is doing in school but not all teachers are using it. They also must be having issues because everyday what ever they post that they will be working on it shows up as late assignments for the child.
Bait and switch
App lists in store as free but you can't access you're child's information without paying $5.
Screw this app - the website is free. Not to mention the whole process is awkward and incomplete. Can't speak for the app because I refuse to pay for apps that offer the same content online for free.
