Socrative Joins Showbie Inc.

Dear Socrative User,

For the past eight years, we have been fortunate to work with teachers around the world with our tools for fun and effective assessment. Our mission has always been to connect teachers with students as learning happens, and we’ve been honored to watch the global community grow to over 3.7 million educators.

Today we are excited to announce a new chapter for Socrative. Socrative will be joining Showbie Inc., to create an even more powerful suite of amazing assessment and feedback tools that enhance the learning journey.

Founded in 2012 and used by millions of students and teachers worldwide, Showbie provides teachers with classroom tools for fast, meaningful assignments and feedback. We think Socrative fans will be right at home in the Showbie community.

Your Socrative experience will remain seamless as we make this move, and over the course of the next few months, we’ll keep you informed about the transition. In the meantime, please read the Q&A below to learn more about this exciting news.

Thank you for inviting us to be part of your classroom!

All our best,
The Socrative Team
