Education App: iDoceo for iPad

idoceoUndoubtedly, most teachers joined the profession for the paperwork. Much joy and pleasure is gained by the continual, never ending form filling, document production, report compiling, feedback and evaluations in all their various forms of disguise.

Well, that’s certainly how it can feel, and any tool which helps reduce this paper trail is certainly going to be warmly welcomed, especially if it helps reduce these time-consuming tasks.

For those technically minded teachers, relief is now available to help you digitise some of the paper-trail in the form on iPad app iDoceo, which has been developed to help you get rid of those spreadsheets helping teachers: keep track of assessment scores; keep track of many different classes; organise seating plans; organise planners for each class; send personalised information to your students by e-mail automatically with their grades, annotations or files; track attendance; and so on.

It is possible to record assessments straight into the app and export marks and curriculum levels as XLS files which can be easily imported into SIMS, or other management software tools.  As a bonus for those with intermittent wi-fi within school, the app can be used without internet connections, making it very flexible in where it can be used. The app also allows you to add files, images, links, record audio and video, add text or annotations in a cell, student, class, diary, or column header – it is very versatile, and all this data can be backed up with Dropbox/Google Drive/iCloud/WebDAV.

The app is very comprehensive, but may need some time to get used to the features as there are so many, but is also well supported by the iDoceo Website, which comprehensively explains how to best use all the features within the app with an informative ‘Instructions’ and ‘How-To’ guides.

iDoceo for iPad is priced at £4.99*, and is available to download here from the Apple App Store.
