Faculty Access for the Web

Before developing this solution, we observed and surveyed hundreds of faculty, advisors and administrators to understand what would really make their job easier. The end result is a user-friendly portal that is available 24/7 with internet access. Use Faculty Access for the Web to input grades for assignments, quizzes & tests. Create visual seating charts and when all students are present, just press “all present”. You can enter assignments for multiple classes at one time. Tools like these make class administration easy.

NetClassroom

NetClassroom allows your school to easily share student information between administrators, teachers and parents. It enables parents and students to check their child’s grades, attendance, conduct, and schedule, as well as print report cards and transcripts — all conveniently from home or the office.  Billing statement, online course request, and assignment dropbox are some of the other tools we provide.  Functionality is high, but the  school determines the type of information made available publicly.
