Explore our 2021 Year in Review for a full recap of our top 21 ManageBac releases. Throughout the past year, our Team worked to apply your insights & feedback together with the community of ManageBac schools and our Pamoja colleagues to improve your Teaching & Learning experience.
With the All New Design across Web & Mobile, supporting Pamoja on ManageBac, and integrating your teaching & learning journey with AssessPrep, Oxford Study Courses, Study & Presentation Mode and much more!
As we look forward to 2022, we are excited to share our product roadmap and some of the key features we are working on to make your ManageBac experience even better:
Our new Home Menu will complete our All New Design metamorphosis for Students, Parents & Teachers. With a ‘Less is More’ approach and one-click navigation, the new Home Menu will provide greater personalisation and ease of use for all users. We will continue our efforts towards simplicity and reinforcing clarity of focus. (Coming Soon January 2022)
Improving Student & Parent <> Teacher Communication has been a longstanding request, we are delighted to be introducing Direct Messaging across Classes, Year Groups and Groups. With one-click, Students can directly message Teachers with text or audio messages (a la WhatsApp and vice-versa for Teachers & Parents). Built with safety in mind, we have implemented Chat in a way unlike any other with Child Safeguarding. (Coming Soon January 2022)
All IB DP Teachers know the refrain “I have 3 other Deadlines due this week?” With our new Student modals, Teachers now finally have real-time visibility at-a-glance with Homeroom Attendance & Excusals, a Workload Indicator showing the number of summative tasks across classes, and their current class & room location according to timetables. (Coming Soon with Direct Messaging early 2022)
With our new Bundles, you will have the power of IB in your pocket! With a full pre-built IB DP curriculum building on Pamoja’s 12-years of innovation in online learning, OSC Study’s all-in-one revision including flash cards, video tutorials, revision guides and IB past exam papers across 10 subjects, and AssessPrep for your online assessments & mock exams. You will have everything you need to support your IB DP programme. (Coming Soon February 2022)
With the IB eCoursework submissions opening on January 15th, our new IB Dashboards for the May 2022 exam session are just in time to help you manage ever-changing requirements.

ManageBac always has your back with built-in IA forms along with pre-filled student name, school code, candidate session numbers and more! (Coming Soon early 2022)
