How is Boardmaker Online different from other Boardmaker Software Family products?

  • Create and Edit activities on any Windows or Mac computer… nothing to install
  • Assign activities to students
  • Play activities from a web browser or on the iPad
  • Track performance and usage data
  • Track progress towards IEP goals (Professional and higher) and educational standards

Can activities be played on an iPad?

Yes! This is one of the most exciting aspects of Boardmaker Online!

A student with a Boardmaker Online login can see the activities assigned to them and play them on the iPad with full accessibility options available.

Can I still create new activities?

Yes! With the Online Editor, you will no longer need special software installed on your computer. Simply login to your account and select “Create Activity” and either start from scratch or start from one of hundreds of included print and interactive activity templates.
