The developers of the popular iStudiez class and schoolwork management apps for iOS devices have released iTeacherBook, a new app focused on providing class management tools for teachers. Created in response to multiple requests from teachers using iStudiez Pro, iTeacherBook now only allows planning a teacher’s schedule and tasks but also provides options for tracking and recording student attendance, sending assignments out via e-mail and marking and tracking student progress and grades for multiple courses and classes. A variety of grading systems are supported and attendance and grades can be entered in real-time or for past events and assignments and the app provides various types of built-in reports for attendance, grades, and student information as well as the ability to export data in CSV format. The application also provides notifications for events, assignments to hand out and scheduled tests and exams. Integration with iStudiez Pro is also planned for a future update. iTeacherBook requires iOS 4.1 or later and is available from the App Store for $5.
