• TDTips: Closing Assignments

    Welcome to another episode of TD Tips.

    Our video this week presents how to close, find closed assignments and re-open them again in Teacher Dashboard. Closing assignments helps to keep your assignments list more relevant and easier to navigate.

    To close your overdue assignments in Teacher Dashboard, navigate to the Assignments list and click “List view” next to the Filters. You will see your assignments listed and new options like Close, Delete and Manage are available now on the right-hand side. Click “Close” next to the assignments you wish to close. Done!

    Don't worry when you see your assignments disappearing from the view. They are all still there, just not visible.

  • TDTips – Sending Parent Notifications

    Our video this week presents how to enable parent notifications and add parent details within Teacher Dashboard, so they will receive email notifications when teachers send out assignments and feedback.

    First, you will need to ask your school’s administrator to enable Parent Management for you. They can do this by logging into Teacher Dashboard and navigating to Parent Management from the School Settings menu.

    Second, as a Teacher you have to decide if you want to notify your parents when you send new assignments or when you return assignments with grades, feedback, or both. In Teacher Dashboard go to the Notifications menu and select your preferred options.

    Teacher Dashboard at the BETT show 2018

    The BETT show is quickly coming around again and we are busy preparing a host of exciting surprises for all our visitors!

    Following the success of last year, we're going to have a much bigger stand in 2018, where we will have our very own "TD Theatre" with a number of educationalists providing 15 minute talks on the ways they are bringing technology into the classroom. The schedule is still being finalised, but I'll publish it here as soon as I can.

    We will also be providing :

    • one to one demos,
    • talks on upcoming features,
    • chances to talk with the developers, and
    • a number of fun and useful giveaways.

    On top of that, we also have a number of BIG announcements on their way too. Mark my words...these are game changers!

    If you want to be the first to hear about these announcements and more about what we're going to be doing at BETT, enter your email address below to sign up to our mailing list.
