PRLog - Apr. 5, 2011 - ROCKWALL, Texas -- eBackpack has launched a new online, cloud-based application which provides online storage, electronic homework drop boxes, and handout publishing capabilities. The eBackpack product promotes easy collaboration between teachers, administrators, and students. Best of all, eBackpack pays for itself by letting the school save money.
In today’s tough K12 economic climate, it is especially important that school districts search for new ways to save money and conserve resources. Moving a small portion of handouts, announcements, and assignments to the eBackpack electronic distribution system can save the average school district $15 or more per student per year on ink and paper costs alone. For many districts, these savings can add up to saving jobs! The many other benefits of eBackpack – such as easy collaboration, letting teachers spend their time on teaching instead of paperwork, and reducing the strain on in-house computer resources – become bonus features.
eBackpack is designed to help K-12 students, teachers, and administrators meet their basic need to store, access, collaborate, and share files.
eBackpack is easy to use! J.N., an eBackpack teacher in Ohio says “I've started uploading a few files to my eBackpack. I have to say, I love the fact that I can just upload my files, categorize them into folders, and open them up at any computer! eBackpack has taken the Cloud and made it easy for administrators, teachers, students, and even parents to keep themselves organized. No more taking a flash drive or SD card back and forth (I have lost a couple)!”
Offering easy 24/7 access to student and teacher data – from any internet location – eBackpack is an intuitive, easy-to-use solution that makes teachers’ lives easier while promoting increased parental involvement and student participation. eBackpack includes unlimited, secure, password –protected individual storage space, large file uploads (supporting video and multimedia), and space for class or group files. A teacher can easily receive homework assignments and other electronic files for each class from their students. eBackpack also features portfolio space for students and teachers. For administrators, eBackpack offers extensive reporting and management tools and supports a broad variety of platforms, including mobile access.
With eBackpack, teachers no longer need to print assignments, worry that students forgot their portable media, or deal with the limitations of emailing files. With its drag-and-drop interface, full audit logging, and extensive reporting, schools and administrators don’t need to worry -- the files are safe with eBackpack.
eBackpack is affordably priced from $1 per user a year, is available today in all 50 states, and is eligible for Priority One E-Rate funding. For more information about eBackpack, visit http://www.eBackpack.com or call 214-461-0073 to schedule a demo today!
