Lantern saves us time organizing lesson plans and tracking progress at The Starter League. It's easy to share content, assign work, and communicate with our students.

Write, organize and share assignments in minutes. You can focus on increasing your students' potential instead of worrying about organizing and collecting their work.
Here's what Mark, an Economics Professor at Northwestern University, thinks about Lantern
"I use Lantern in all my classes. Before, I had used the discussion features in Blackboard and Facebook. In contrast, Lantern is amazingly simple to use. Students can follow various discussion threads, which forms online communities and encourages collaboration.
Another surprise for me was how seamlessly Lantern handles student assignments. I can find out who has looked at the assigned readings or not with zero difficulty. The result is my students learn a lot without me needing to collect and return a lot of papers."
Your first class is completely free, for every one of your students. After that, each class only costs $10 per student.
Three years ago I co-founded a software school in Chicago called The Starter League. Since opening our doors in 2011 we’ve instructed more than 800 students from around the world.
We've learned a lot about what it takes to build and operate a school. Most importantly, we’ve learned to define and emphasize successful outcomes for our students. But even with our success, one part of our classroom experience was lacking: we didn’t have a good way to manage assignments and grading.
We tried using existing learning management systems, but expensive, bloated software like Blackboard and Canvas made simple tasks more complicated. When we realized there wasn't a tool that met our needs, we made our own.
We built Lantern to simplify the learning management experience. Instead of tons of features, Lantern focuses on the essentials: student-teacher communication, resource sharing, assignment creation and progress tracking.
Lantern saves us time by giving our students everything they need to have a seamless learning environment. It's a breath of fresh air compared to the cumbersome experiences we've had with other tools, both as a student and teacher.
With over a year of testing with hundreds of students and dozens of teachers, we're ready to share Lantern with you.
If you're interested, I'd like to walk you through the app (remotely). You'll see for yourself how Lantern will improve your classroom experience and student outcomes.
