I have been using my Teaching App for years to keep my teaching-life more organized. Now, I am providing it to other educators in hopes of giving them more time to focus on student learning, rather than administrative hassle.

Teaching App runs on Windows and is available completely for free (I have benefited so much from free software, this is my way of giving a little back to the community).

Here are some of the things you can do with Teaching App:
  • Managing your subjects: You can manage your
    • Modules (subjects)
    • Classes (groups of students who study the module together)
    • Import/export students
    • Track student-level information (writing quality, research quality, etc.)
    • Take attendance
  • Scheduling: Which topic to teach on which day in which room
    • Can be exported to import into your favorite calendar program
    • Supports scheduling around certain times (for holidays, special events, etc.)
    • Supports splitting one large lecture class into multiple smaller workshop classes
  • Assignments (both "normal" and BTEC HND assignments)
  • Marking with detailed feedback
    • Giving detailed feedback becomes very easy for you but still very helpful for your students
    • Supports reusing comments on outcome-by-outcome basis (for BTEC HND assignments)
    • Supports tracking overall improvement points (so you know if this student has had a problem with citations in the past) allowing you to track student improvement over time
  • Extensive reporting
    • Too many to list (and more being added all the time)
