Introducing Tags

Today, we're thrilled to unveil a game-changer for educators and learners: Tags have officially arrived on Teachfloor!

With this brand-new feature, instructors gain the ability to create and assign tags to students, opening up a world of possibilities for personalized learning experiences.

Tags - Teachfloor

Here's a sneak peek at the incredible capabilities of Tags on Teachfloor:

Get started by heading to the member page, where you'll find the new Tag column. Here, instructors can seamlessly create tags and assign them to students, all from one centralized location. It's a breeze to use, whether you're adding tags individually or streamlining the process for multiple students at once using our bulk editing mode.

With Tags, instructors and administrators can tailor the learning experience to individual learners or specific groups. Whether you want to differentiate content for beginners and advanced students or create custom learning paths, Tags provide the flexibility to do so seamlessly.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of Teachfloor Tags is their ability to serve as visibility rules. Instructors can decide precisely which modules or elements are visible to specific Tags. This opens up endless opportunities for tailoring content to meet diverse learner needs.

A Real-World Scenario

Imagine you're an instructor gearing up to teach a course with multiple cohorts—Spring and Autumn. You want to provide specific lessons and elements to each cohort at the right time. This is where Teachfloor Tags come into play.

🌱 Spring CohortYou create a "Spring Cohort" Tag and assign it to all the students who will attend the course during the Spring term. With Tag-based visibility rules, you can ensure that these students only access the content tailored for the Spring session, keeping their learning experience relevant and on track.

🍂 Autumn CohortSimilarly, you set up an "Autumn Cohort" Tag for the students joining your course in the Autumn. By associating this Tag with the Autumn students, you can effortlessly control which lessons and elements they see, aligning the course content with their specific timeline.

With Teachfloor Tags, managing multiple cohorts and delivering a personalized learning journey becomes a breeze. Say goodbye to one-size-fits-all courses and welcome tailored education experiences for each group of students.

Bulk Assign Students to Assistants via CSV

We are excited to introduce a new feature that simplifies user management in your courses - the ability to bulk assign students to assistants via CSV. This enhancement is designed to save you time and effort, especially when you have a large number of students and assistants to manage.

Imagine having dozens or even hundreds of students and assistants to assign within your courses. Manually assigning them one by one could be time-consuming and prone to errors. With our bulk assignment feature, you can now handle this task seamlessly by uploading a CSV file.

How It Works

  1. Prepare Your CSV File: Create a CSV file that includes a list of students and their corresponding assistants. This file can easily be generated from spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.
  2. Upload and Assign: Once your CSV file is ready, head to the specific course where you need to perform the assignments. Use our intuitive interface to upload the CSV file. Our system will automatically process the data and assign the students to their respective assistants.
  3. Effortless Management: You no longer need to manually match students with assistants one by one. This bulk assignment process ensures accuracy and eliminates the potential for oversight.

To start using the bulk assignment feature, navigate to the appropriate course and look for the CSV assignment assistant option in the member page.

New Localization Functionality

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone in the evolution of Teachfloor – the launch of our new Localization functionality! At Teachfloor, we have always been committed to providing a seamless and inclusive learning experience to our diverse community of educators and learners. With Localization, we are taking a giant leap forward to break language barriers and reach learners around the world.

Breaking Down Language Barriers:

Language should never be a barrier to knowledge. With our new Localization feature, you can now enable multilingual support for your institution, making Teachfloor accessible to learners from different corners of the world. When Localization is enabled, the entire Teachfloor interface, including admin and instructor sections, as well as student areas, will be automatically translated into the selected language.

Supported Languages:

To start, we are introducing support for five major languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Italian. These languages have been strategically chosen to cater to a wide range of global audiences. However, this is only the beginning! We are actively working to add more languages to our repertoire, ensuring that Teachfloor truly becomes a global platform for learning.

Reaching Learners Worldwide:

The benefits of Localization go beyond simply translating the user interface. By breaking down language barriers, educators can now connect with learners from different cultures and backgrounds. This creates a more inclusive and engaging learning environment, where learners feel comfortable and confident in their language of choice.

Getting Started with Localization:

Enabling Localization for your institution is a straightforward process. Simply navigate to your Teachfloor settings, select the desired language from the available options, and voilà! Your Teachfloor platform will now be available in the selected language, opening up a world of possibilities for your learners. (Please note that the Localization feature is exclusively available for users on the Advanced plans.)

Localization is more than just a new feature – it's a testament to our commitment to transforming education on a global scale.
