Teacher Tools (Overview)

For the most part, students and teachers interacting in MySciLife have a similar experience, but teachers have access to a special set of powerful tools to go along with their extra responsibilities. Most of these items are in Teacher Tools. Teachers can access the Teacher Tools from anywhere in MySciLife by clicking the hammer and wrench icon in the Menu Bar, directly to the right (or underneath on mobile) of My Stuff.

If you click on the arrow to the right of the icon and the drawer will slide out—offering access to the following items: 

  • Activity Feed.
  • Manage Students.
  • Manage Communities.
  • Badges.
  • Contact Support.
