RenWeb ROCKS!

What do you like best?

I love the accessibility of student information--being able to communicate teacher to parent is tremendously helpful. It also improves student progress as parents have a way to check and balance assignments, progress, and teacher communication.

What do you dislike?

The RenWeb App and RenWeb desktop screens are COMPLETELY different. In some instances, there are options on the app that are not in even a remotely similar place on the desktop version. This makes it difficult for parents to sometimes find the needed information quickly (or at all!). It can also impair communication between the teacher/parent if the parent is trying to get RenWeb assistance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

RenWeb is an excellent solution for parent/teacher/school communication and sharing of documents, grades, resources, information, and even payment/billing information. We love it. It makes day to day life easier! I can't imagine how difficult communication would be without RenWeb. Having the app makes it so useful and easily accessible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

RenWeb is a solution for the "homework list" and classroom resources. Teachers may upload reference documents for the entire term, weekly assignments under subjects or courses, and the school can provide schedules, announcements, and even snow day information. There is also a directory for those that participate as well as an option to pay a bill or add lunch money to a student account. RenWeb creates one family account for multiple students.

RenWeb School Management Software

What do you like best?

RenWeb's outstanding customer service and technical help enables us to use their product well. Every aspect of our school is managed by the integrated services RenWeb provides. They are extremely responsive to feedback and implement suggestions made by their end users. The on-site training Conferences have been a highlight of my professional development as an Admissions Director. They are committed to excellence in their product, people, and customer relationships.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the learning curve for new products is steep, but the training and support make the transitions easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend RenWeb to schools looking for a system that can be used by multiple departments needing to access the same information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking Admissions from inquiry to enrolled students. I am able to create detailed reports for our school Board easily and in real time.

Functional with some limitations

What do you like best?

I like the ability to send communications and manage our school's database of parents, students, and friends.

What do you dislike?

Their report maker has deficiencies as it relates to too many names appearing multiple times as it picks up all relationships. It's hard at times to whittle down reports to a narrow set of names as it wants to grab all information. Later, you are left deleting duplicate rows and names.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe if you have a large private school with many constituents and families, I believe pulling reports could be an issue in terms of extra time. Better export functions would be ideal, and the ability of some information to be changed in one place and automatically be changed in another would be extremely helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

School database, admissions forms, communications, attendance

RenWeb makes school admin a snap!

What do you like best?

I liked that RenWeb provided a platform for attendance, lunch orders, email lists, grades and student information all within one easy app.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way to communicate with parents directly through the RenWeb app. This would have been a useful feature for things like spontaneous bad weather days--I would have liked to have been able to click on my class, send out a mass text from the app. Instead of having to look up each number, call specifically, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure all of the information is properly inputted. Explain to parents your system for marking that a paper or project has been turned in but not graded. I usually had to put a 0 as a placeholder, and parents would get afraid when they saw the 0 not realizing that it was just a placeholder grade. A system in place for these kinds of things prior to the year would be good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to account for student attendance, take and see lunch orders at a glance, input grades, and look up student information. It helps that it's "on the go", so I don't have to lug home student information every time I leave school.

RenWeb

What do you like best?

RenWeb allows you to post content online for students to access anytime. I also like that I can work on lesson plans or grading wherever I have an internet connection. Students and parents can also pay a nominal fee for an app. The app is free to faculty.

What do you dislike?

All reports must use internet explorer. Text cannot be copied from Microsoft Word. Text must first be copied into textpad, saved and then re-copied into RenWeb.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Renweb is a great LMS and pairs well with Moodle.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Students can readily access materials needed for class from home. Teachers and students have access to lesson plans, homework and grades instantly. Lesson plans are easily saved from year to year.

With a few improvements, could be very useful

What do you like best?

RenWeb allows a teacher to customize grade calculations for each class and then automatically calculates grades in a running format. You can enter categories such as quizzes, homework, labs, tests, exams, classwork, etc., and assign percentages for each category and RenWeb will weight the grades accordingly and do all the calculations, saving a ton of time. Also, RenWeb allows the option of dropping a teacher-specified number of grades in a category at the end of a grading period. Additionally, RenWeb keeps track of attendance, lesson plans, and homework assignments, and keeps everything in one place. This makes report card time a breeze at the end of each semester.

What do you dislike?

RenWeb is not very intuitive in many aspects, and required redundant work in others. For example, when the teacher enters the semester exam grades so they appear on the students' view when the students (or parents) log in to check grades, RenWeb will not pull those grades to fil the report card. All other grades that have been entered on the same screen will appear, but not the exam category. The semester exam must be entered by hand in a separate log-in on the report card or RenWeb will not print the exam grade on the report card. The system is smart enough to pull quarter grades across for the report card, but not smart enough to pull exam grades across for the report card, even though the system has a blank for it. You must double the work and manually enter every exam grade twice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

RenWeb is very expensive for what you get. There are other options out there that appear to do the same thing at a fraction of the cost. It appears that RenWeb has a large market share due to its promotion among ACSI-accredited schools. I would encourage schools to consider other cost-effective options that are available through Microsoft and Google before sinking so much money into RenWeb. Don't pay for frustration if you can get it for free or significantly cheaper somewhere else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking student attendance, including absences and tardies, in individual classes allows for easy compliance with state course attendance laws. RenWeb's instant updating of the grades allows students to track their progress throughout the semeseter and makes it easier for teachers to notice when a student is struggling.
