The second beta of iOS 11.3 brought with it a brand new framework. ClassKit is a framework designed for educational apps and will allow developers to create activities that teachers assign to their students.

Apple is going to release a brand new app called Classwork, designed to track student’s progress in class and share it with teachers.

The screenshots from the teacher settings screen in preferences also shows that teachers will be able to assign activities provided by ClassKit-enabled apps to students from all of their devices. The students will then view those activities in the Classwork app.

We could see the brand new Classwork app released in a March event alongside new hardware. However, it could just be a new feature of iOS which Apple is not ready to announce yet.
