Frequently Asked Questions

Do teachers all use the same template?

Yes, the teachers will only create Posts, which will be displayed in the template that you, the site administrator, has created. This way, the teachers don't have to worry about styling their page in line with brand guidelines. 

How do teachers access Posts?

Teachers will log in with their normal portal accounts. Once they have logged in, they can reach their boards by clicking on their name in the account bar and selecting "Posts." 

Are there any examples of Posts?

Our Design and Enhancement page, which displays Posts examples, actually uses Posts itself. Those examples using Posts for Teachers are labeled.
