School Administrators: Time to Switch to the NEW Admin Dashboard!

It’s Time to Make the Switch!

As some school administrators may have noticed in the past few months, we’ve been making the new Administrator Dashboard and Tools available to School licenses as a new option. As the new Admin tools are perfected, it’s almost time to make the switch for those Administrators still using the original Glogster EDU Admin Dashboard.

 Why the Switch? 

In response to the needs of our users, we have developed a new set of Administrator Tools that make handling the large volumes of students and teachers in School Licenses easier, faster, more efficient, and more reliable. While our original Admin Dashboard was based upon the Teacher Dashboard, many of our school administrators found that it fit the needs of a teacher better than those of a school administrator. Even in the cases where a teacher also administrates a School License, the new Admin Dashboard differentiates the work of an administrator and that of a teacher, so that the user will now see a clear difference between acting as an Admin, and as a normal Teacher.

Benefits of the New Admin Dashboard:

A Beautiful, Clean and Clear Design: The new Admin Dashboard is based on a design toolkit called “Bootstrap,” which was developed by Twitter. The new tools look, feel, and work the way you expect them to work, because they follow a common set of rules, shared with leading online services. 

InitialView

Access all Admin functionalities in an intuitive, beautiful Dashboard design.

More, and More Powerful, Teacher and Student Management Tools: The New Dashboard not only looks more modern, it has more advanced tools for managing larger numbers of students. These tools include a brand new Student Creation Tool, Mass Actions, and searchable databases of students and teachers.

When Is the Switch Occurring?

The new Dashboard will go online for most School Administrators within the next few weeks. Some Administrators using newer school licenses will have the option to switch manually before that time. But don’t worry! The new tools are intuitive and simple to use. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. And if you should have any concerns…

We’re Here to Help with the Switch

Our goal is for all School Administrators to start using these new tools as soon as possible.  But you don’t have to go it alone! When you activate the new Dashboard, a direct link to Customer Care by telephone and email will become available to you. Just click “Get Help,” and we’ll display a number where you can give us a call. We look forward to helping you.

  1. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I
    stumbleupon every day. It will always be interesting to read content from other writers and practice a
    little something from their websites.
