organise and plan your curriculum with resources.

Learning Platform

Unlike other learning platforms, ManageBac was designed to be curriculum-specific
and solely focused on the needs of international schools.

Our unique database design & architecture means that:

  • When you create a class, you choose from authorised subjects, which allows teachers to collaboratively share curriculum, resources and tasks & assignments effortlessly.
  • Differentiation is supported naturally within mixed HL & SL classes allowing units and assignments to be taught separately.
  • When a curriculum review occurs, we do the heavy lifting to centrally update the assessment criteria, objectives, IA forms, and syllabi, saving our schools countless hours each year.
  • Transition years are managed seamlessly, e.g. DP1 will teach a new subject guide, while DP2 remains on the old curriculum.
  • Class
  • Assignments
  • Annotations
  • Assessment & Reporting
  • Academic Progress

When you create a class, you choose from authorised subjects, which allows teachers to collaboratively share curriculum, resources and tasks & assignments.

By providing an integrated curriculum & unit planner, attendance and assessment gradebook with reporting, teachers have everything organised in one place without having to move between separate systems.

Easily create assignments and embed resources including files, websites, videos and books. Differentiation is supported naturally within mixed HL & SL classes allowing units and assignments to be taught separately.

With TurnItIn integration enabled, you can easily browse originality reports with one-click.

Annotate coursework on the web & mobile devices using the Box (Crocodoc) reader.

Submit assignment grades together with term-based comments & grades. Configure HL & SL grade boundaries as well as conversion to local grades.

Students can build their coursework portfolio naturally by submitting assignments, and parents track academic progress and browse report cards directly online.
