In this video, we will show you 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’ll be asked to create and confirm your password. If you’ve already completed this step, input your password and log in.
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.
As a first step, we would suggest double-checking that the classes are set up correctly by clicking on “Classes” and that you can see all of your student accounts by clicking “Students”. If either of these seem not to be correct, contact your portal admin.
Once everything is set up correctly, you can start running your online classroom: assign courses to your classes, start creating and setting assessments, or start assigning our excellent exam resources.
If you assign courses to your classes by clicking “Classes” and then “Add Courses”, your students will be able to access a huge wealth of content that they can consume as directed by you or independently.
You can use our lessons to “flip your classroom.” Why not, when starting a new topic, encourage groups of students to complete Nagwa lessons of your choice? They can watch videos, practise 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.
If you would like to set a more summative assessment task—for homework or as an end-of-topic assessment—you can create your own assessments from our expansive question bank. Just head over to “Assignments” in the toolbar followed by “Assessments” and click “+ New Assessment” to start creating. For more detailed instructions, watch our dedicated video on “Creating an Assessment”.
For a quick way to browse all of the lessons available to your students, you can use the search button on the top right of the portal. Just search for the lesson you have in mind, for example, “Area of a Circle”, and you’ll see a list of the most appropriate lessons which you can direct your students to.
If you want to add co-teachers to your classes or update class details, head back to “Classes” and click “Edit”.
As I mentioned earlier, your Nagwa portal gives you access to some fantastic analytic reports. You can quickly see an overview of your student 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.
Finally, if you head over to “My Library”, here you can upload files to your portal that you can then share with your classes, or share videos that you have created using our fantastic studio app. Each of your classes has its own class wall. Head back to “Classes” and click on the class title. Here, you can share messages with your classes, directing them towards content, or share files directly from your library.
