One of the most successful apps that I built was a student lookup tool for faculty. Prior to this tool, teachers had to call to the front desk to determine which class a student was attending, then had to reference several documents to verify the classroom teacher’s contact information in order to ultimately contact the student.
With this Student Lookup app, teachers were finally and easily able to get schedule and contact information for any student in the school. Using Glide’s email and phone component, teachers also saved precious time by having the ability to contact parents directly from the app.
A basic copy of the app I created is now available for free for anyone who wants it:
In my deployed version, the app also contained assessment information, accommodation lists, links to Zoom profile pages and more.
