What do students see on their home screens?

One of Edsby’s many great features is that both students and teachers see very similar content. However, there are some key differences between what teachers and students see because Edsby customizes the home screen view for each role. This video covers what students see and how their view compares to the teacher’s view.

What do students see when they enter my class?

When students enter a class, they see a similar screen to that of the teachers: similar panels, similar layouts, similar content. The only difference between content is that students never see hidden assessments, journals, events or lessons. Only teachers can see items that are hidden.

This video compares the screen of teachers to that of students, to let teachers know what students see when a teacher posts in the feed, adds an assessment, creates a poll, shares a grade, or creates an event, and what the library, journal, course plan and overdue assessments look like to students.
