Schoolwork is companion app for Classroom, announced during Apple's edtech event in March 2018 and released in June 2018.[3][4][5] The free app allows teachers to distribute documents, iBook files, web links, and assignments through ClassKit (such as Kahoot! quizzes) with due dates.[6][7] Students can hand-in those assignments via the app for teachers to view and provide feedback via the app.[8]

The app allows teachers to view what students are doing on their screen.[9] ClassKit allows developers of educational apps to create links for specific function in their application, which teachers can subsequently assign to students.[10][11] It also relays the results of the student's actions back to the Schoolwork app to be shared with the teacher.[12]
