What's New in Version 3.4.4
New: Daily Lessons report
New: Lesson Listing report layout tweaks
Fix: Report background transparency
Update: I was without my iPad for a week recently and that was not good. Since this app is only available on my iPad, I couldn't access the lesson plans for my kids. Thankfully I had emailed a month's worth to my high schooler, so she at least had hers. The ability to have this accessible on multiple devices would be so wonderful! Until then, I recommend sending yourself a months worth of daily lessons at a time just in case . . .
I have homeschooled now for 10 years. I have 7 children (5 currently in school). One is in an ISP (or PSP) so that she can play sports. I needed something that would easily allow me to fulfill her requirements through the ISP easily while not requiring a lot of effort from me. I have tried a myriad of homeschool programs over the years. I have used this one for an entire year now and can say that I have finally found the one that works for everything I need! I have never lasted more than a year with a prior program. This one keeps track of GPA, daily reports to turn in, allows me to run a summary report giving her current grades and attendance days that are frequently required for sports eligibility, allows me to copy the same lesson plans later for future children that will be taking the same class, and the list goes on and on. Definitely worth the time and effort to learn this program and put it to good use!
Well worth the money but.....
Awesome app.... Enjoying it. Totally worth the money and in fact it is under priced.....BUT..... I would pay $50 if it had these things.
1) email isn't used as it once was. There needs to be the ability for the students to have an access app on their phones to pull up their lesson plans and grades. They could then mark their own assignments as submitted. They could also easily follow links from the lessons that way. Links would allow me to add attachments to online courses and examples.
2)rather than putting lesson into each students account, you should be able to enter a batch lesson and with check boxes like you have the days.... Apply it to as many students as you need. That one function would have saved me 45 minutes last night.
3) i wish that there was an app for my laptop so that I could manage the app with the luxuries that my macbook pro offer over my ipad. Then the student portals and primary apps could all sync through a cloud system.
This is a great app and I hope it only gets better.
I am so thrilled with this app!
I am a big organizational person. I don't like having a lot of things around me because schoolwork clutter is enough! I hate having to keep records because I would rather just teach my kids, but it must be done and this makes it so simple! I was able to do batch entry for 170 lessons for each subject in moments. When appointments happen, all I have to do is "bump" the lessons and it will automatically go to the next day I designated for school. You can create task lists for each child and email it to them. You can also email them a list of all the lesson you expect them to accomplish! Grading is really easy too and you can do it right from the lesson. There is not much room to make notes on each lesson, but that just takes time. I just put notes on the task list when more review is needed or there is something administrative I need to do for the child. You can also use the task to help them with long term planning. I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!
