We like to think of ourselves as an LMS made easy. All the best parts of a learning management system, without the bulk and confusion. We like to keep things simple and effective because ultimately, we just want to make teaching easier and learning more engaging.

We’re making education accessible on any device, any time, anywhere with powerful tools for student engagement.

The home to school connection has never been stronger than with eBackpack. With district controls over how much access they have, parents can view their student’s upcoming and missed assignments, grades, and feedback. Additionally, eBackpack for Parents, our new app for iOS, enables parents to receive push notifications. The eBackpack Parent Connection is changing the way that schools and districts engage parents in the learning process.

Empowering Educators To Do What They Do Best
Assignments, Assessments & Discussions
Teachers can easily create assignments and assessments in eBackpack with just two clicks enabling you to set up instructions, add files, and pull in content from third-party sources. Teachers can choose what content category it belongs to (homework, classwork, quiz, etc.), grading options, and student turn-in rules. Additionally, teachers can enable visibility controls to determine which students can view the assignment and when it becomes accessible.
Using a mouse, finger, or stylus, students and teachers can utilize our industry leading Mark It tool to write, highlight, draw, drop in stamps, and leave voice content for more engaging assignments and rich & meaningful feedback. The Mark It tool is as versatile as you are creative! Foreign language classes use the voice content feature for homework assignments and corrections, English classes use it for annotating essays, and students in a math class are able to show their work. Many students use the Mark It tool to better retain information by highlighting & making notes and saving it to study later on. The ways you can utilize Mark It in the classroom are endless!
