LearnBoost is an online grade book and lesson planner that is available for free to educators. It has a grade book, lesson planner, attendance, reporting and calendar. It is easy to use, visually appealing, and you can share information with students and parents. The lesson planner is integrated with state standards and you integrate the whole system with Google Apps. Parents and students have access to view grades, attendance, calendars, and course information too.
It is an excellent product and they have just announced another nice upgrade. Administrators on LearnBoost can now set school-wide grade defaults to make classroom setup easier for teachers. They can customize subjects, standards, grade scale, and school sessions. Teachers can still customize their grade scale if they want, though. This is another great feature for a great resource.
And, Lesson Plan Sharing let you share your lesson plans with other teachers, administrators, students and anyone else you’d like to. All the lessons you create with LearnBoost are shareable through their partner services (Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and more). You can also embed your lesson plans in your own web site and each lesson plan gets it’s own URL.
LearnBoost is a great alternative to paying for course management and gradebook systems.
