The GetMyHomework system is designed for use in primary and secondary schools.
GetMyHomework combines the power of the Internet with the convenience of the telephone. Homework assignments are recorded by teachers using the telephone and can be retrieved by parents and students using a telephone or the Internet.
The recordings are stored as standard WAV files that can also be played over a multimedia PC using the Internet and a modern browser. GetMyHomework can even send the daily homework assignment to students or parents as an e-mail attachment!
Teachers can quickly record homework assignments from home or school. Homework can even be recorded several days in advance.
Students and parents can hear homework assignments in your voice by telephone or over the Internet. Since the system retains assignments for several days, students can get homework assignments for missed days.
The system can also be used for the school lunch menu, school calendar and more.
More work for teachers? No way!
Homework assignments can be recorded in seconds from home or school. Recording homework is fast and easy.
The automated e-mail list means that parents can join or leave your e-mail list without your help.
Planning to be gone for a few days? Homework can be recorded several days in advance. The system is even smart enough to send the homework via e-mail on the correct day.
Complete control - when you want it
Teachers can use the browser interface to add or remove e-mail list members, maintain old recordings, change system options and more. The browser interface even lets you read and send e-mail messages.
The browser interface provides several convenience features but use of the browser is completely optional.
