Go paperless in your classroom! With Showbie, you can quickly and easily assign, collect and review student work on your iPad, then provide rich feedback to your students by adding annotations, text notes and voice notes directly onto their documents. Students can show their learning creatively by submitting to Showbie from thousands of compatible iPad apps, or by completing assignments with Showbie’s built in tools. Showbie keeps everyone organized with individual student assignment folders, email and push notifications.
It’s easy to get started!
Create your first class and assignment, then give the Showbie class code to your students so they can join. Your whole class will be up and running in minutes.
Effortlessly distribute material to your students!
Add instructions or a document to your assignment. Showbie will send your students a notification that their assignment has been updated, so they can immediately begin working on their own copy of the materials you provided.
Keep your class organized!
With Showbie’s individual student folders, your students will never lose their homework again. Student work is stored securely in the cloud, so students can even switch between iPads and keep working. Showbie also reminds students when assignment due dates are approaching.
Engage your students with rich, responsive feedback!
Students can ask questions or comment right inside their assignment folder, so you can provide immediate guidance while they work. Students and teachers can also record voice notes for instant verbal feedback.
Let your students show their creativity!
Students can record voice notes, video, and take pictures right within Showbie. They can also submit homework to Showbie from thousands of the most creative iPad apps.
Fast and painless marking!
Showbie shows you which students have submitted work, and which submission’s you’ve already graded. Grab your iPad and a comfy chair and finish that batch of marking in record time.

What's New in Version 2.2.2
2.2.2 & 2.2.1
- Bug fixes and stability improvements.
- The Showbie Gradebook is here! Teachers using Showbie Pro can now add grades while viewing student work. Grade entry is super fast and flexible – you can add anything from 10/10, 100%, A+, or even your favorite emoji! When you’re done you can review grades at a glance, and if you need to, export your grades to another system.
- A big upgrade to the pen tool! Now you can use two fingers to pan and zoom around a document while the pen tool is selected. We’ve also upgraded the pen to create smoother, more natural lines for better quality writing and drawing.
- Student Search! Teachers can now see and search a list of all students across all of their classes. Pick a student from this list and get a summary of that student’s classes, assignments, and grades all in one place.
- We’ve added an ‘All Assignments’ view for students and teachers, allowing students and teachers to see upcoming tasks and due dates across all of their classes.
- The Showbie website is now available in 12 languages, just like the iOS app.

- We’ve added a new way for you to try out Showbie Pro! Invite your fellow teachers to try Showbie, and when one of them signs up, we’ll upgrade both of you to Showbie Pro for 2 weeks!
- Pinned Voice Notes (Pro Feature). Now you can pin a voice note to any page of a PDF or image, making verbal feedback easier than ever!
- You may now PERMANENTLY delete archived classes and assignments if you like. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

- We added an easier way to remove yourself from a class if you’re a co-teacher. As well, students can now elect to remove themselves from a class in the iOS app.

I can't function without this app!
I am an elementary school teacher in a 1:1 iPad school. I love being able to send students assignments and be able to have them respond a variety of ways through the app. The new feature of grades is making my life even easier!
It is great now but it used to be difficult
