In a classroom setting, no matter what the content area, assignments have to move easily between teachers and
students. A clear and simple workflow is necessary. Not one-way movement of materials — it has to be easy both
ways. With eBackpack teachers can share and distribute assignments and class materials from their MacBook Air or
their iPad mini. The students retrieve the content on their iPad and can work on the assignment in any application
available. Students do not need to be isolated — in eBackpack, they can collaborate in a secure environment. With
work completed, the students easily pass their work in — and eBackpack makes sure the work stays organized by
class and assignment. Now it’s the teacher’s turn, and they are easily able to retrieve student work via their MacBook
Air or iPad mini, where they can review the student work, annotate with comments, and deliver a grade. The cycle
continues as students are now able to see the teacher’s comments and grading, make changes as needed and pass the
work back in. In addition to the simple pass-in, pass-out workflow, eBackpack also includes e-portfolio, parent
login, and many other features that will support effective use of the MLTI devices.
