The support I got for my XP-based grading system was overwhelming and I would like to thank every supporter and everybody who stands behind me in modernizing grading in our schools.
I got hundreds of emails of schools, universities and even companies who asked me if they could try my grading system and now I am happy to announce:
Socialcube LITE is now live (and free)
Register your educational institution today on http://lite.socialcube.net
It is free for all educational institutions
If you want to register your school or university you can send a request via http://lite.socialcube.net
You don't need to be a principal to register your institution! Every teacher or professor can register independently.
At the moment Socialcube LITE is available in English and German but more languages will follow soon. The website detects your language based on your browser settings so you don't have to worry about that.
It works with every grading system
- A-F (USA)
- 1-5 (Austria)
- 1-6 (Germany)
- 10-0 (Spain)
If you just want to see if the XP-based grading system is right for you, you can add virtual students to your courses. Virtual students don't necessarily need to represent actual people, but you can grade them by giving XP and convert them to real students at any time just by entering the email address of a student.
Students can see their grades develop in real time
One of the most important features of Socialcube LITE is that students always see their progress in real time. This has been proven to be very motivating and students love to check on their grades.
Socialcube LITE is mobile friendly
It is important for me that teachers can use Socialcube LITE with any device they have. As long as it has an internet connection any device can use my platform.
Socialcube LITE supports SSL encryption. When you connect via https://lite.socialcube.net you should see a lock Symbol next to the address bar which means your connection is secure and encrypted.
(Note: Some Android devices might not be able to connect via SSL for CA reasons) should work fine now
For passwords I use state-of-the-art hashing algorithms (not MD5) and use a mixture of static and dynamic [salts](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_(cryptography%29) to ensure maximum protection of your data.
Currently there are no smartphone apps and no offline support but I am working hard on making both happen.
