Homework Friendzy allows teachers to upload homework problems, and for students to collaborate to complete them. Students can also seek help from live, anonymous tutors. Homework Friendzy requires a license to use.
The process of using Homework Friendzy starts when the teacher selects or uploads a homework assignment for her students. This assignment can be selected from one of Homework Friendzy’s existing problem sets, or uploaded from a textbook via a PDF or image upload. If teachers input their own content, they can select what answers will be considered correct for each item.
Teachers then send the assignment out to each of their students. Homework Friendzy allows teachers to give different assignments to different groups of students. For example, teachers can sort by previous homework scores to find the students who need the most help on a subject, and assign this group different work than the rest of the class.
Students log in to the app and can view and complete the homework that has been assigned to them. They complete the homework on the app, and are automatically graded by the tool when they complete a problem. Teachers can also view individual problems and leave student-specific feedback.
If they need assistance in completing a problem, Homework Friendzy provides two options: Students can view how another student has completed a problem, or ask for help from a live tutor. When they view another student’s answer, the viewing student receives partial credit for the problem. They can also rate the answer that they view, which incentivizes students to show their work properly. When students connect with a live tutor, both the student and the tutor are anonymous. Tutors can use a text chat feature or a live workspace to help the student through the problem. Teachers can see when students have used either of these options to help them solve the problem; they can also select which users are allowed to be tutors. Tutors may be other students from the same school, or members of the general community.
A free 30 day trial of Homework Friendzy is available. After that, teachers must pay to license the product.
