What Will My Students See?

Welcome to another video demonstration for your Teacher account. As you interact with from your teacher account, you may wonder 'how will these pages look to my students? what can they see?'

This is a great point - not all the features available to you will be present in your students' accounts.

For instance, anything in the 'Teacher Tools' portion of the navigation bar on your dashboard will not be visible in your students' accounts.

They won't see options to share lessons as assignments or integrate google classrooms.

But what will they see, and how do they access assignments that I've sent them? Let's explore.

Students' Dashboard

Here we are in a sample student account. Once your student logs in to, they should visit their dashboard by going to the top right-hand side of the screen and clicking on the person-shaped icon.

Then they should select the 'Dashboard' option from the drop down menu.

You may notice the student dashboard is similar to your teacher dashboard, but a little different.

There are no Teacher Tools in the left-hand navigation bar, for instance.

But your students will still see these widgets on their dashboard that display lessons they've looked at recently, under 'recent activity', as well as assignments they've been sent that they need to complete.

Students' Assignments

Students can see all of their assignments by clicking on the 'Assignments' button in the lefthand navigation menu.

This will show everything they have left to do, as well as completed assignments they've done in the past.

Now I'll show you what happens when you click on an assignment

You can see that when the lesson loads, it contains the assignment instructions, what class the assignment is for, and the due date.

When I click 'start assignment', the video will begin.

Don't forget to let your students know that they can turn on closed captions or adjust the video speed as they watch the lesson. They can also read along with the transcript if they prefer to read and listen at the same time.

When the video is complete, students will be prompted to take the quiz so that they can complete their assignment. Additionally, the quiz can be accessed by clicking on the 'Quiz' tab above the video.

That's it! I hope you have enjoyed this short tour of your students' accounts. Thank you for watching this video demonstration.
