  • Distribute assignments to your entire class or individual studentsí handhelds over the network
  • Automatically collect completed work from your studentsí handhelds
  • individual completed assignments on your teacher workstation.
How does FilePoint Classroom work? Itís easy!

  • Teachers log on to the network and designate assignments to be distributed to either individual students, or the entire classroom.
  • Students retrieve assignments wirelessly, using a simple one-button tap in FilePoint on the handheld.
  • Assignments automatically show up in a named folder on the handheld
  • Students work on assignments using Documents To Go or other associated application
