Welcome to the SMARTPREP Classroom!

For every class you teach, you set goals and plan clear take-aways. With its brand new ManageBac interface, SMARTPREP makes it possible to select the content that matches your teaching points, one class at a time. And because we organize subjects along the IBDP syllabus, topic by topic, it's very easy to get right to the point.

Select only the flash cards you need, add a title and message to the SMARTPREP Exercise, and push it to your students - before, during or after class.

ManageBac Stream & Resources

Once you have created a SMARTPREP Exercise, simply drag and drop it into your ManageBac Stream & Resources to include it into your lesson plan. Because the integration between Managebac and SMARTPREP is seamless, you and your students have instant access to the Exercise you prepared.

The SMARTPREP Classroom is everywhere, all the time

We love making things easy. No matter where you add Exercises in your Streams, they will all appear to your students in the SMARTPREP Classroom within the SMARTPREP IB App. And because our mobile web app is designed to work on any device, your students can study anywhere and anytime, on their phone, tablet or computer.

Turn reading notes into active study

SMARTPREP covers the DP syllabus with hundreds of flash cards per subject, each one a kernel of essential knowledge. In addition, interactive features like Notes, Folders and Analytics allow learners to organize the content according to their needs and preferences, so that they own it. Engaged students are better students…
