I do really like this app, I find it is awesome for sharing and building a digital portfolio. But it is incredibly frustrating that on Android it is so difficult to access parent messages. I end up opening it up in my browser rather than using the app because of this problem. Please fix it!
Loved it but now I may leave. Can't access parents messages on android. Useless if I can't see my parents messages! Other classroom apps have solved these problems.
This app rocks! So simple to use yet powerful. I taught one student how to share his work on Thursday. By dismissal time on Friday he had taught everyone in the class how to share. I'm getting good feedback from parents too.
Love what the app can do for students to share info. I dislike that as a teacher I cannot see the parent messages on an android. This is frustrating.
FRUSTRATING limitations: - Can not make 1 video using multiple features as it requires jumping in and out of recording. In order to leave you must delete your recording. This results in flooded feeds with students creating multiple mini videos. - Can not pause recording on Video feature to remove messy transitions. - Can not 'undo' (instead of erase and start again - eg when layering in Drawing) - You can not add more than 1 image to Draw at a time. If you change subjects you're stuck with the image in the background which limits you to 1 subject. - Can not save videos or download to your device without uploading first. - Can not edit videos Please fix these things!
I used to love it but probably wouldn't recommend it now that parent messages are so difficult to access. This had been a key as to why it suited the needs of myself and my families, but now it's just easier to use email.
- 10 Minute Videos! Students can now record up to 10 minutes of video or drawing + voice video.
- Bug fixes, including long time limits for student codes to join a class (1 hour for Class Code classes, 7 days for Email Sign in classes).
