Finding Your Class

This portion of the process is dependent on the teacher having actually registered his or her class with Teacher.io. It isn't hard, so if your teacher has not done this, please ask them nicely to do so.

If the teacher has already registered, the rest of the process should be relatively easy.

Final note:

This application is usable even if the teacher does not use it. It does require manual entry of information, but in the end the time and stress saved is a big pay off. Also, since it is available on multiple operating systems and form factors (such as phone vs tablets) there are some minor differences in interface between the different OSs and devices.


This article used screen shots taken from the Nexus 7 FHD tablet, which runs the Android operating system. However, as previously mentioned, this application is available for multiple devices & OSs including the Kindle Fire line, iPhones, iPads, Android phones, Windows phone, Windows 8, and of course any device with an up-to-date web browser.
