Have you had a chance to explore our recent updates?
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be digging deeper into these new features, uncovering the details that will help enhance your teaching!
New Feature #1: Sharing Custom Quaver Lessons
The spring update included BIG CHANGES to lesson customization making Quaver lessons now editable, printable, and sharable!
Quaver teachers are experts at customizing our ready-made lessons to better suit their classroom needs or school standards – even making their own lessons from scratch. Now, we’ve made it easy to share those custom lessons with other teachers within a school district, with just a few simple clicks!
First things first – as your customizing lessons this spring – take note that the button to create a NEW custom lesson screen has moved! More on that in this week’s Tip of the Week!
Now that we’ve got that change down, here’s how to share a custom lesson with other teachers:
1) Head to your Resource Manager
After you’ve signed into your QuaverMusic.com account and clicked the yellow TEACHER TAB, click on the RESOURCE MANAGER located on the Teacher Dashboard.
2) Select a custom lesson from your Resource Manager
Once you select the lesson you want to share, find the LESSON tab – a very important tool – in the menu bar.
3) Hover over the LESSON TAB and click SHARE
Select SHARE from the dropdown menu to do just that – share your lesson!
You’ll see a checkmark appear, and the lesson icon will turn ORANGE – both these indicators tell you the lesson is now “shared.”
The Lesson dropdown menu is your new best friend! Use it to change a lesson in your Resource Manager from Shared to Not Shared anytime – just look for the checkbox!
The shared lesson will appear in the Library search for any teachers in your school district!
How to Find a Shared Lesson:
1) Search “Shared Lessons” in the Library
Using the Library in the Resource Manager, click “Shared Lessons” and hit enter or click the magnifying glass to see any lesson shared already!
2) Select a Shared Lesson
Select a Shared Lesson to see the details – and the creator – in the preview window below.
3) Drag a copy of the lesson into your Resource Manager
Drag any shared lesson into your Resource Manager to create a copy of the lesson for your personal use. Any changes you make to this copy do NOT affect the original, shared lesson, but happen only to your copy. Change the title and share it again to add to your district library of lessons!
