Here is a list of some of the most useful teacher tools available on Verbling.
If you’d like to share your screen with your student while teaching a lesson, no problem! You'll need to install a browser extension if you're using Google Chrome, whereas Firefox users will not need to install anything.
Please see this article for instructions on how to screen share.
2. Collaborative Materials
Materials is a collaborative hub where all of your learning materials - including files, homework assignments, lessons plans and more - are accessible in one central place. This is where you will upload, store, and access all the materials you plan to use with your student.
To get to your Materials, just click on the lesson with your student on your Dashboard. Once on the lesson page, click the “Materials” button.
Then you’ll see the option to upload materials as well as a list of materials you’ve used with the student thus far.
To see the homework teachers shared with you via Homework section, go here: https://www.verbling.com/dashboard/homework.
To see all the files the teacher shared with you, go to https://www.verbling.com/dashboard/teachers, then click on the teacher's name and on the newly opened page click on Our Workspace at the top menu.
3. Editing file
When you upload a file to the Workspace and open it, you’ll notice a toolbar on the right of the screen. This is your Whiteboard. This allows you to type or draw on the document, and your student can see your markings in real-time, and even make markings of his or her own.
You can create a new Canvas by clicking on the + icon at the top in the lesson space. Canvas is a completely blank page where you have the freedom to draw, text, highlight, add images, send reactions etc by using a toolbar on the right:
You can do this in collaboration with your student, and the document updates in real-time. This can be a very helpful tool to work with kids!
Similar to Whiteboard, Textpad is an in-lesson document editor. The difference is that you are starting with a completely blank sheet of paper instead of writing over an uploaded document. You can write freely and style the text. Best of all, you can do this in collaboration with your student, and the document updates in real-time. This is a great place to take and save notes during class time.
