Whatever Your Role, CatchOn Empowers You to Make Data-Informed Decisions

Explore the following use cases to learn how CatchOn improves app management for you and your team.

Curriculum Instructor


Curriculum Instructor Sarah Jones has discovered that several of her middle and high school teachers are exploring different applications to enhance their algebra and geometry lessons despite the district having purchased an expensive math curriculum tool.


Using CatchOn, she identifies these apps and evaluates their usage. Sarah discovers two apps that are far outperforming the costly math tool. After speaking with a team of teacher-leaders, she puts the highest performing apps in her proposal for next year’s budget and eliminates the costly math tool.

Chief Technology Officer


CTO Morgan Friend just left a meeting with Superintendent Susan Osborne. He has been tasked with analyzing all the learning applications being used within his school district and providing feedback on their return on investment (ROI).


Leveraging CatchOn, he can easily run a report that provides usage data across the district—enabling him to quantify their investments and make data-informed decisions going forward.



Principal Janet Allison  needs to monitor what apps her teachers are using to ensure the faculty is following best practices and using the best tools for the job.


She regularly uses CatchOn to see what apps her teachers are using. She recently noticed that 62 percent of her staff members have been using the free features included with a reading app for several months.  She schedules a call with Sarah Jones, her curriculum instructor, to discuss purchasing this reading app building-wide and giving her teachers full access to the app’s features and tools.

Professional Development Coordinator


Professional Development Coordinator Pat Mayberry purchased teacher training software. With the contract deadline quickly approaching, he needs to identify any gaps in usage and determine if the district should renew the service.


Leveraging CatchOn, he’s quickly able to view the usage data, track trends, and determine the tool’s impact.



Superintendent Susan Osborne needs to address the school district’s student data privacy policies and action plan at the school board meeting to confirm that they are in compliance with the school system’s data privacy requirements.


She assures the board that they are using CatchOn to monitor and track every app that is being used within the district, including those that haven’t been purchased or approved by the district. This enables them to verify that any unknown apps comply with data privacy requirements.
