Why Markup?

Have you thought about why teachers and students still use paper in this day and age? The students type their papers on computers, the teachers have computers - why are we still printing papers out and handing them in?

Markup will completely change the way teachers grade assignments. Instead of collecting physical papers and grading them by hand, they'll be able to do it right on their iPads.

What do teachers think about Markup?

When we told the idea to a handful of teachers, they spread the word like wildfire, to the tune of 2,500 teachers who signed up in a week!

But before we get Markup into their hands, we need your help. We need to raise money to contract mobile developers and visual designer, as well as quality assurance testers. All to make sure we deliver a high-quality app for teachers who need it most.

Who are we?

We're a team of passionate technologists and educators, who has spent the last three years developing educational apps. We've released 7 apps to date, including ShowMe (showme.com), which has over 1 million users and is one of the top iPad education apps in the App Store.

Check out some reviews of our other apps:
