New Feature – Classroom Archiving

Archive your classrooms

Just in time for the end of the school year, we’ve added a new feature that lets you archive this year’s classrooms and make room for new ones! It’s the easy way to keep your account organized between current and former classes, and it lets your students save all their comics and characters on their home computer.

Archiving a classroom is simple. To learn everything you need to know, read our FAQs – it only takes 60 seconds.

You also have the option of completely deleting old classrooms, but if you do, keep in mind that your former students won’t be able to save their work at home or import their avatars into their new class next year!


Send us your best student comics!

Send us your best Bitstrips comics

We want to cap the school year by featuring some of this year’s very best student comics on our blog and in our newsletter. If your students have done some outstanding work that you’d like the world to see, send it our way! Just email a link to each comic, along with a short note about what makes it special, to by June 14th.

Celebrating 2 MILLION comics on Bitstrips for Schools!

Our first school year has included some amazing milestones, and we’re thrilled to celebrate another – two million comics! A big thank you to all the teachers and students who helped catapult us there so fast.

The two millionth comic is a great account of Joseph Papineau leading a rebellion in Quebec against the British, made by Deepak in Sylvia Jakob-Muirhead’s grade 7 class at Fairwind Senior Public School. Here’s an excerpt:
