In this video, we will give you an overview of how to use your portal as an educator.

If it’s the very first time that you are logging in, head over to educators.nagwa.com. Input your account e-mail and you will be asked to create and confirm your password. If you’ve already completed this step, input your password and log in.

For this video, we will be giving a general overview of how to use your portal and showcasing all the different features available to you. Note that many of these features will have their own dedicated video guide if you would like more detailed information.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll see the “Analytics” screen, with some summary statistics about your students’ activities in the portal, and you’ll see more detailed reports if you scroll to the bottom of the page.

The “Analytics” page contains useful information about your portal, but in order for there to be any data, you’ll first need to set up your portal.

Along the top of the screen, you’ll see a toolbar that allows you to navigate between the different portal pages.

As a first step, let’s take a look at the “Students” page. From here, you’ll be able to see all of the student accounts on your portal. The page includes features such as finding a particular student and the ability to reset the password of the student accounts if one of your students forgets their details. You can also see the progress of individual students by clicking on their profile.

If you need to perform other actions, such as creating or deleting a student account, you will need to contact the portal admin.

Next, we would suggest double-checking that your classes are set up correctly by clicking on the “Classes” page in the toolbar.

Each class title displays the class name, subject, grade, and number of students. Clicking the three dots at the top right of a class title shows a list of available actions you can take.

For example, the “Edit” button allows you to change details such as the class title.

Initially, classes may have been set up by your portal admin. You can see more details on how your class has been set up using the “View Details” action. This takes you to an overview page. From here, you can see the students, educators, and courses associated with the class.

As an educator, you are able to create a new class using the “+ New Class” button at the top right of the page. You can also manage each class in a number of ways, for example, by adding students and adding courses. For more details on how to perform these actions, check out our dedicated video guides.

Once you have assigned courses to your class, the associated students will be able to access a huge wealth of content that they can consume as directed by you or independently. Courses are arranged into lessons, each containing a number of resources, such as a lesson video and a worksheet.

You can use our lessons to “flip your classroom.” When starting a new topic, why not encourage groups of students to complete Nagwa lessons of your choice? They can watch videos, practice worksheets, and then give feedback to each other with what they’ve learned. This can build their confidence and create a class of genuinely independent learners.

All portal users, including students, also have access to a large library of Nagwa lessons.

For a quick way to browse all of the lessons available to your students, you can use the search button at the top right of the portal. Just search for the lesson you have in mind, for example, (Properties of Combinations), and you’ll see a list of the most appropriate lessons that you can direct students to.

Another way to engage with your students is using the class wall. A class wall can be viewed by navigating back to the “Classes” page and clicking the class title. You can also click the “View Wall” option in the action menu.

From here, you can send messages to your students directing them toward content or you can share files and videos.

You can also test your students’ knowledge more directly with assignments. In order to do so, head over to the “Assignments” page. From here, you’ll have access to three subcategories: “Assessments”, “Exams”, and “Sessions”.

Assessments are a great tool to help your students practice and refine the knowledge from individual lessons. You can also use them for homework, for summative assessments, or as an end-of-topic assessment.

Clicking on the “Assessments” page allows you to view and manage past and current assessment tasks.

For now, let’s look at an example. We’ve built the assessment tools to be as flexible as possible. You can utilize questions from our expansive question bank or, if you prefer, create and upload your own. You can give your students a time limit to answer the questions!

The next assignment subcategory is “Exams”. These resources are designed to help students prepare for formal examinations.

From this page, you’ll be able to see the complete library of exam materials made available on the portal by your admin.

Nagwa’s exam resources include an original exam-style paper. You can assign these papers digitally using our portal and benefit from automatic marking once the deadline is reached. Exam papers are also available in PDF format if you would like to print them out to simulate test conditions.

Finally, sessions are live classes arranged by your portal educator, conducted using our Nagwa Connect feature.

Simply arrange the session through your educator portal: log in to the Nagwa Connect for Educators app and you’ll be able to launch the session and start teaching your students remotely, in real time. Your students can easily join using their student accounts, and they will be able to hear you, see what you’re writing, and communicate with you using the integrated chat feature.

These sessions can also be recorded and saved for future viewings. To find out more, watch the dedicated video for Nagwa Connect.

For more detailed instructions on each assignment page, including how to create assignments and send them to classes, check out our dedicated video guides.

Earlier in this video, we saw that files and videos could be shared with students using the class wall. In order to share a file on the class wall, you’ll first need to upload it to your library. To do this, head over to the “My Library” page.

From here, you can add new files. You can also see and manage all of the previously uploaded files in the library.

Alongside uploaded files, the library also allows you to manage other resources. The videos tab allows you to manage any videos that you have created using our fantastic Nagwa Studio app or the recorded sessions from Nagwa Connect.

As mentioned earlier, you can also create your own questions. These questions are created and managed here in the “Questions” tab. Remember that any questions you create can be used in your assessments. For example, you can create an assessment that combines 10 Nagwa questions with a couple of your own that you have uploaded!

Now that we have given an overview of all the portal features, let’s return to the “Analytics” page.

As mentioned earlier, your Nagwa portal gives you access to some fantastic analytic reports. You can quickly see an overview of your students’ performance in worksheets and assessments and also receive a diagnostic view of your students’ progress through a course, highlighting key lessons where students need additional support.

These reports aim to give you valuable insights, allowing you to help your students reach their full potential. You can see more detailed information for each report in the individual video guides.
