LearnBoost is a completely free online software that was designed to manage all classroom administrative tasks in one place. Teachers can use LearnBoost to manage gradebooks, assignment calendars, to-do lists, track attendance, and communicate with parents. The reporting tools use data from your gradebook to automatically update graphs and visuals to easily track and assess student progress. The Lesson Plan tab allows you to create multimedia lesson plans that can be associated to common core-standards with one click. Teachers can also choose to allow limited access to parents and students so they can log on to view grades, attendance, assignment calendars, and classroom policies. The integrated seating chart with access to your class roster makes it easy to find the perfect seating arrangement for your class. Designed to work seamlessly with Google Apps, you can connect to your Google Calendar, and even add LearnBoost to your Google Apps Marketplace to automatically put your gradebook into your Google universal navigation bar.
