The Chronicle Cloud product team brings over 30 years of teaching experience and is an early adopter of technology, constantly trying to increase teaching efficacy using different applications. Chronicle has emerged as a product of choice for teachers across the US. Over a thousand teachers have downloaded and used the first paid version of the App during the last two years.
Driven by our passion for supporting teachers, the Chronicle team had a new gift for teachers – a fully functioning free Chronicle Cloud. We added many new features, including cloud backup and sharing right from the App.
We look forward to partnering with teachers, schools, and school district administration to build the Chronicle further into the world’s most widely used app for teachers!
