Home schooling not effective with this app.

Hasn’t had an update in over a year so that just goes to show how little they care about this app. I’m home schooling my child and this is the application they chose to run classes off of, but even on iPad Pro, I can’t get it to show me what the teacher has on her screen and no camera function. No tools function that lets you interact with the screen like on a computer. Honestly wish for this to be taken care of so that my child can have a productive learning experience

My computer was acting all slow and crap for pa cyber so I turned it off because I couldn’t move the mouse and I was about late for class so I got on my iPhone 7 and went to my school site and tryied going on to class but I needed to download this app then it downloaded in not even 10 seconds and I got onto class and tried messaging the teacher why I was about late but could not do it so I just waited for my computer to get done what it was doing when it was powering on so then I got to get to class and message the teachers

There so the only thing wrong with this app is that I could not chat at all not to the teacher or anyone else

Thank you for reading this

Hopefully the app makers read this because I will have to use this a lot and I don’t like talking I like messaging

I use my iPad pro to collaborate for a class and I can't participate in anything. Please make everything available on the app version that is on the desktop version. As a student and parent I need the ability to participate in online sessions while at my kids extra curricular events.
