Ibtrove reviews

The interface so clear and easy to use, and lots of classroom examples were embedded in every lesson. I highly recommend it for any teacher new to IB or even as a quick refresher as you start a new school year!

Using Ibtrove courses I was able to get all 20 of my IB teachers trained quickly with minimal disruption to their schedule. Plus we saved quite a bit of money which was the cherry on top.
