We set up a custom authentication mechanism that allowed users to log in using the same credentials as the district directory. This provided simpler access and greatly reduced the previous barrier of needing an extra set of login credentials.
User’s frequently would reference multiple lessons and units so building a system that allows users to quickly reference multiple items was paramount.
The ability for users to share lessons with team members and allow simultaneous editing of that content was built with a Google Docs editor in mind.
It was important that users had a robust revision history to view what others had contributed or changed on their lesson plans.
We built a system to allow users to easily associate teaching standards with their lesson plans. This helped give teachers a roadmap in creating their lesson plan goals.
With the ability to access so much library content there needed to be a simple way to find what was important to a single teacher. We developed a dashboard that allowed users to easily view what was most relevant to their work.
Instantly saving all updates was built into the platform allowing teachers to focus on developing the content and not about how to use the tool.
