Teacher Dashboard Resources Updated

posted Sep 18, 2012, 1:49 AM by hdowd@sas.edu.sg   [ updated Sep 18, 2012, 1:49 AM ]

I've created some instructional videos for using Teacher Dashboard with students. There are two main uses of Teacher Dashboard. One is to conveniently view student work. The other is to share resources out to students. I've organized the online resources into these two sections in the Teacher Dashboard area.
