The Sapling App

Students spoke, we listened.

As a company created and supported by educators, we are focused on driving student success and saving educators time. Through our customer-focused approach, we have conducted extensive research with instructors and students on the use of portable electronic devices in the educational environment. We engaged with thousands of students to understand their workflow, use of mobile devices for educational purposes, and opportunities for Sapling Learning to have an even greater impact on their success.  


The Sapling App

The Sapling App allows students to manage their course more effectively to boost their performance. With just a few swipes from their iOS device, the Sapling App makes it easy for students to:

  • Receive calendar notifications for all assignment and activity due dates by automatically syncing with their iOS Calendar

  • View a prioritized list of upcoming assignments and activities by due date

  • Access their eTextbooks on iPad

  • Access course resources such as text and PDF documents, presentations, audio and video files

  • Check their grades

  • View all current and past Sapling Learning courses

This initial focus is what the majority of students told us would be most valuable to them.

At Sapling Learning, we are always listening.

This is the first version of the Sapling App; our first step to help students more effectively manage their course work to ultimately drive their success. This is only the start of an evolving app; we will continue to carefully craft the best mobile experience for educators and students. We know some students and educators want to do more on their mobile devices and we’re committed to providing more [the right way]. We’ll continue to engage with educators and students through studies on assignment accessibility, among other things, and we’ll continue to evolve the app.
