Posts are the #1 way to connect with your students, share multimedia content, and create an engaging virtual learning environment for your students.

Before making your post, ensure you are in the right class - you can check the class name at the top left corner of your screen.

You can select any Space within the class after you start creating the post. To create your Teacher Post:

  1. Select + Create in the bottom right of your screen

   2. Click Post - you'll be brought to the post creation screen:

4. From here, you have a number of options available:

  • You can upload up to 10 attachments using the 6 media options (Camera, Audio, File, Google Drive, OneDrive, or URL)

    • Camera - post from your device camera or camera roll

    • Audio - record audio in SpacesEDU

    • File - post files from your device (check out this article for supported file types)

    • Google Drive - sign in with Google to add Google Docs and other files  

    • OneDrive - sign in with OneDrive to add your files

    • URL - post any external URL

  • You can add a title (max 100 characters) and description (max 2500 characters).

    • The Post Description allows for rich text formatting (bold, italic, underline, and lists)

    • You can use emojis too, if supported by your browser!

  • You can also add Curriculum Tags while creating the post, or they can be added later on once it's posted

5. Once you're happy with your post, click Next at the top right - or you can click Save Draft to come back and finish it up later

6. After clicking Next, select the Space that you'd like to add the post to. Space types will be listed along the right-hand side: Class, Individual (INDV), or Group

7. Select the student(s) you'd like to add the post for - you have a few options here:

  • You can select one or more individual students (in Class and Individual Spaces)

  • You can select one or more groups in Group Spaces

  • You can select all students in the Space, with the additional option to include all future students that may be added to the Space

  • When adding a post in a Class or Individual Space, you additionally have the option to select either Shared Post or Template Post:

  • With a Shared Post, you're adding one post shared across all of the students you check off

    • This is ideal for class bulletins or discussion prompts: it means that students can all add comments on the same post, and engage with each other's comments if you have that visibility setting enabled

    • Using Shared Posts, you cannot apply individualized proficiency levels for each student

  • With Template Posts, you're creating separate copies of your post for each student that you have selected

    • Once you've created the post, this option allows you to apply individual proficiency levels for each student with the curriculum tags you've selected

    • You can also go back and edit the template post for one student without updating the version other students see - this is great if you have a description and attachments you want to add across all students, then add individual content later for each student

7. After selecting the students, click Post at the top right

Now that you have created a post, you will see it in the Feed for the Space & students you selected!
