I was wondering if there is a plan to allow teachers to have more than one class. I am a tech integration specialist trying to talk teachers into using this app. Most times I get the reason that they can only use it in one class and would like to provide it with all their students in all their classes they teach. Our teachers do not just teach one subject. Thank you for your time.

It would be good if there's a way to delete pupils from my class. As there may be situations where pupils may leave my class. Or when next year when I get a new class. I'll need to either delete all my previous pupils or be able to create a new class.

Multiple classes is *definitely* on our to-do list. We realize that having one class works well for elementary schools, but not so great for middle and high schools at present.

We're thrilled that folks want to use it enough that its worthy of being used in multiple classes. When we started building the app, we knew that this could / would be an eventuality, but we were determined to make sure it worked even for one class first. :)

As it is, there's a few things we need to improve for that single class first. But, we hope to get around to multiple classes soon. Feel free to suggest other things we need to do to improve Ask3 for you and your students!

I am enjoying your app and exploring ways to improve student feedback and collaboration. I would like to be able to rename videos.

(P.S. I am a tertiary level English teacher in an all iPad technical college in the United Arab Emirates)

Thank you!

I agree that this ability is so crucial! This has actually been the main reason why I haven't started to use this app. I teach in a 4/5 program, at an elementary school, and have different groups for language arts and math. Please, please, please allow the ability to add a new class or delete current students to add more and I can get our entire school site aboard!

Hi everyone. I'm thrilled to let you know we have multiple classroom support in our latest release of Ask3.

You create a new class by tapping on your current class name and pressing the + button.

You switch your class by tapping on the current class name and selecting a different class from the list that appears.

Hopefully, this will allow you to use Ask3 in all your classes this fall.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Can students join more than one class?  Students in my class have joined their spelling group, but I would like to group them for math as well.

Students can logout and log into another class they just have to create a user name and password for the second class.  Then logout and in every time they want to switch classes.

It would be good if the pupils could switch between the bulletin boards for various subjects in the same way teachers can switch between classes. Having all their teachers in one place without the need to memorise or store pass codes would encourage more use. Great app by the way.
