  • Using PlusPortals to Support Remote Classrooms & Online Learning This recorded webinar provides an overview of how PlusPortals supports online classroom workflows with useful and easy-to-use features. Teachers can conduct classroom activities from their portal class pages and communicate with students, parents, and other staff using email and messages. Families can access class pages where they can participate in classroom discussions, submit coursework, access class resources, and view scores and grades.
  • TeacherPlus Portal User Guide This topic is an introduction to the TeacherPlus Portal User Guide, which provides teachers with step-by-step instructions for using their portal to manage their classes and share information with parents and students.
  • TeacherPlus Gradebook HTML5 User Guide. The HTML5 version of TeacherPlus Gradebook features a brand new interface but with familiar functionality. Although some of the features work a bit differently than they do in the Silverlight version, most of them work similarly enough to assure a smooth transition between versions. To make this transition even easier, we have developed this get started guide with step-by-step instructions for all the application tasks most important to teachers.
