Embedding a readable document in School Jotter

By Cieran Douglass in Customer Training | Tagged document upload, embed, jotter site, pdf
Ofsted requires that you include certain documents on your school website, and all this means at its minimum is that they must be provided as downloads. But, for accessibility, wouldn't it be nicer to have them readable and embedded on your website? You can probably see where this is going - yes, School Jotter lets you do that! First of all, take a look at this page for an example of what I'm talking about.

Setting this up is easy - first of all we're going to go into Edit mode, click Insert Item, then choose Document.

It's that time of the year again, when primary teachers comb the web looking for creative ideas for crafts in the classroom. Eating too many Easter eggs can be unhealthy for pupils due to the high amounts of sugar they contain. Therefore, teachers can keep them busy with creative DIY crafts instead of hiding sugary chocolate eggs all over the classroom.

Let your students feel the Easter spirit by being creative, decorating their own Easter eggs. Some of the greatest Easter egg ideas can be found in this infographic:

Create a self-marking quiz with Resources

By Cieran Douglass in Customer Training | Tagged automation, learn, marking, quiz, resources, vle
You might have heard a lot of talk about School Jotter's function as a VLE. While a repository to store learning materials is all well and good, a VLE really needs a way to actually assess students' learning - it's a good thing, then, that Resources and Learn (bundled together) offer this capability!

First of all, you're going to need to go to the Resources app from your School Jotter dashboard (you can also create Quizzes from within Learn itself, but we'll do it this way as it's much the same method). Click Create Resource at the top of the page, then choose Quiz from the dropdown.
