Find out how easy it is to assign, collect and review student work from thousands of compatible iPad apps, or have your students complete assignments with Showbie’s built in tools. Provide rich feedback using digital ink, text and voice annotations right on images and PDFs, and then add your students’ best work to personalized digital portfolios that can be securely shared with parents.

“Showbie is my number one can't live without app! It makes the iPad workflow process a breeze! I especially love how it works seamlessly with so many other apps.”
— Kristen Paino, Lead Technology Integrator at Avenues: The World School

“I don't need to convince my colleagues that they need to use this app — it sells itself. I like that it gives me the flexibility in how I choose to grade my student's work, especially with the voice notes feature. There is no single third party app that I would rather champion.”
— Suzanne Lustenhouwer, Teacher and iPad Coordinator, Apple Distinguished Educator

“I love that Showbie is so versatile that the youngest of students can use it independently, yet it is appropriate for older grades as well. The ease of use makes it a great workflow solution for classes with iPads.”
— Kristi Meeuwse, Kindergarten Teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator

Recommended To All Teachers And Students

I am a student that loves this app and it is easy, swiftly-running and is a great way to save paper and trees online without have to not do any work. I use this app most days for just about any subject.

I love the whole concept of this app and think every school should use it.

Something to work on is maybe after 30 days, or a term or something, delete the collected assignments. Otherwise it might just clog up space and be hard to find what you need to work on in the ‘collected’ section.

I also like how you can do voice recordings, post images and much more like adding text and even a ‘markup’!

I have used this app for almost three years now and it has been brilliant. I hope this helped any new teachers, students or other users.

it’s alright

this app is really good I’ve been using it for the past two years but some things are really annoying. Like when I upload a file yes it uploads correctly but it does this ‘loading annotations thing’ and my teachers can’t see the full document if it’s more than one page. And this is really annoying because I get messages from my teachers asking why I haven’t done the work when I literally have but showbie just won’t show it🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡
so ken y’all like fix this so my teachers don’t think I’m slacking off in online learning plez and thank you

amazing app for teachers

when you look at the title you think im a teacher but no im a student anyway this app is amazing! teachers can give you work even if you get stuck in traffic and cant get to school.

it also saves paper and is more organised. when you sre at home you can get your test results. you can also kinda comunicate with your teacher.
