Apple has today announced several new software features for educators and students. The company is introducing a new Schoolwork app and bringing its Classroom app to the Mac, as well as a new ClassKit API.
Leading Apple’s announcements today is a new Schoolwork application that lets teachers distribute handouts and create assignments. Schoolwork is cloud-based and integrates with ClassKit. The app will be available this June, in time for the 2018-2019 school year.
9to5Mac’s Gui Rambo first discovered ClassKit in the iOS 11.3 beta 2 back in February. Rambo later further uncovered screenshots for how ClassKit will look for both teachers and students.
ClassKit is a new API that integrates with a slew of other applications, including Swift, Garageband, iWork, and more.
Finally, Apple is bringing its Classroom app to the Mac. The company touts that teachers “love Macs” and that computers play an integral part in education.
