Markbook OnlineRegister

Do I need to install anything in my browser or on my computer?
Markbook Online does not require any plugins or special downloads. It works with all standard browsers such as Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome or Firefox. Other browsers with JavaScript enabled can also run Markbook Online, and cookies are not required.

Can I use Markbook Online from my iPad or Android tablet?
Yes, Markbook Online works with tablet and touch based computers. You can even use it from an iPhone if you need to, in that case the interface is simplified for the small screen, but you can still do common actions such as adding and editing results.

What is the importance of the SM-Marks option during the registration?
If you currently use SM-Marks turning this option on ensures that the commands and help mostly closely match the markbook you are using now. If you don't use SM-Marks, or use another markbook such as Teacher's Personal Markbook leave this option off.

How much does Markbook Online cost?
To continue using Markbook Online after the free 90 day trial requires a yearly subscription. The annual subscription starts from a base of $360 plus $2 per teacher (not including GST) each year. For example, at a school of 80 teachers the annual cost is $360 + $2 x 80 = $520 (plus GST). For this low cost, at a school of that size all teachers have a login name and password to continue using Markbook Online after the trial ends.

Do you have videos showing Markbook Online in action?
Yes, there are screencasts on our YouTube channel. New videos are added regularly and these can also be accessed from the Help menu of Markbook Online. The videos do not replace the documentation, but supplement the 10 Minute Guides and the Help pages.

Where are my markbooks stored?
Your markbooks are stored remotely on servers located here is Australia. Local hosting means fast response times. Regular backups are made of all markbooks and each markbook that you store can only be accessed by yourself and users at your school who you choose share it with.

Why doesn't Markbook Online look and work exactly like SM-Marks?
As a browser application (not using a terminal server to emulate the desktop) there are differences in the user interface when compared to a desktop based markbook. Even so, all the calculation types of SM-Marks are available in Markbook Online and work identically. The organisation of the commands in Markbook Online is largely similar to make most actions familiar.

I am the school network administrator, will Markbook Online be an administration headache?
With no installation, after you have added the user names to the school there is no administration. Teachers control their own markbooks and do account administration themselves, including resetting a forgotten password, without requiring your assistance.
