Concept of cover teacher

Sometimes teachers go on leave or vacation, and other teachers need to cover up for them. For this, the cover teacher would need a quick access to the classrooms of the teacher who is absent. This will help the cover teacher gets up to speed with whatever the teachings that have been happening in the classroom and then can guide the learners accordingly.

Although administrator could temporarily add the cover teacher to the classroom he/she is covering, this would put a significant workload on the administrator. So, we decided to come up with the concept of cover teacher. This would be an optional feature, which would allow any teacher to view any other teacher’s classroom! Yup, we broke down the walls separating the classrooms!

Teachers can now search for any users on the site and click on the suggestions that appear and navigate to that teacher's profile. And on the teacher's profile, you can navigate to any classroom of that teacher and get view-only access to it.

Access permissions of the cover teachers can be controlled for classroom newsfeed, classroom materials, classroom dashboards, gradebook, and stories. For instance, if the cover teacher is given access to the “Materials” tab of any other teacher’s classroom, he/she can view the learners progress in that classroom. For example, in lessons reading and assessments submissions. This is a view-only access and the cover teacher will not be able to view learners submissions or grade the submissions. Likewise, if cover teacher is given access to the posts of other classrooms, he/she can view them but not comment or reply on them.

How to enable this feature?

Just let us know which of the following permissions you want the cover teacher to have, and we will enable them for you:

  • View any classroom newsfeed
  • View any classroom materials
  • View All Classroom Dashboard
  • Access All results
  • View all Classroom Portfolios
