ManageBac Product Roadmap & ChangelogPowering the IB Continuum, teaching and learning at schools worldwide.
Curriculum First Programmes Unification
This will be the completion of our architectural work to unify and align all curriculum programmes since 2016 under a common data model and feature-set. PYP was completed in July 2019 and MYP in March 2020. DP will be completed in Spring 2020 to fully harmonise our programmes into the C1 model providing greater consistency, broader functionality, and enabling us to develop new features for all programmes uniformly.
