In a new version of the OnCourse Classroom Mobile App, students can complete classwork and Google assignments, take assessments, and message teachers. Activation on Monday, April 12th.
Schools using the OnCourse SIS and OnCourse Classroom LMS prior to 2020 found themselves with a relatively easy on-ramp to remote/hybrid learning. Districts took advantage of popular features like Google integration, tech-enhanced assessment, and student access via phones and tablets.
This school year, approximately half of all student/parent logins came from an iOS or Android device.
"We were happy to see that OnCourse's mobile experience extended digital learning to more families at a time when equitable access was critical," says Chris Contini, OnCourse Chief Executive Officer. "Even when something is working, though, our team loves finding ways to make things work better. The new OnCourse Classroom mobile app is an example of that."

Notes for OnCourse Users
