6 Reasons Why Creative Book Classroom Is Useful In Your Classroom

1. Track Book Writing Progress

When students start writing book, how do teachers know their progress in real time ? There are 4 statuses to keep track of progress: Started, Submitted, In Review & Reviewed. Teachers can check to see if the students have read task description and submitted book in one screen.

2. Highlight Text & Add Notes

By using iBooks, teachers can highlight text and add notes but teachers cannot export notes to their students for reviewing. CBC allows teachers to do these and lets students review the notes.

3. Collect Book Submission Effortlessly

It is painful for teachers to collect book submission. Students may upload books to somewhere. Teachers download books to iPad and bring them to iBooks to read one by one. It is time consuming. By using CBC, students just upload books and then teachers can view books effortlessly.

4. View Book Directly

There are many learning management platform, but none of them support viewing EPUB within the app or browsers. Teacher can preview EPUB within CBC app directly.

5. Better Task Management

Teachers manage session into different tasks. It is similar to to-do list that helps students present their idea under clear and simple instruction.

6. Better Version Control

When the books are reviewed by teachers, students upload new books and the last reviewed books are kept so that teachers and students can check notes and comments for reviewed books at any time.

Humbly - Anonymous Messaging for Classroom

Humbly is a new way for students to learn through effective conversation, involve lessons responsively, and give honest feedback by using anonymous messaging.

Humbly allows teachers to create channels for different lessons, topics, subjects, projects, interest groups and events, etc. The students can join channels to ask or reply questions anonymously without hesitation because they do not identify each other. This is extremely useful in classroom when some students are not willing to respond to teachers in front of others and teachers can also get more feedback as well.
