Schoolwork is an iOS app designed for the iPad first announced by Apple Inc. during their edtech event in March 2018 and released in June 2018.[1] The free app allows teachers to distribute documents, iBook files, web links, and assignments through ClassKit (such as Kahoot! quizzes) with due dates.[2] Students can hand-in those assignments via the app for teachers to view and provide feedback via the app.[3] The app is designed as a companion for Classroom, which allows teachers to view what students are doing on their screen.[4] ClassKit allows developers of educational apps to create links for specific function in their application, which teachers can subsequently assign to students.[5] It also relays the results of the student's actions back to the Schoolwork app to be shared with the teacher.[6]
