Watch a (2:47) video tutorial on adding Access to Online Training in the Parent Portal
Take things to the next level and enrich your students' experience through online learning with virtual classes or shared video tutorials!
Be sure to consider any possible tax or insurance implications related to offering online classes or video instruction. Update your Agreement Text (Legalese) as needed to include policies regarding online training.
When you create videos using a video sharing site like YouTube or Vimeo, or create a virtual class with a video conferencing service like Zoom or Google Hangouts, you will be able to generate a URL (link) to share the resource.
Share these class-specific online training materials with only the students currently enrolled in the class, or scheduled to be in the class for a makeup, using the Virtual Class / Video Link URL and Virtual Class / Video Link Text fields in the Class record. The active link will then be displayed in the Parent Portal in the Class Card under My Schedule.
In the Virtual Class / Video Link Text field you can opt to add text to display instead of the link itself, e.g., "Click here for choreography" or "Join the class online". If no text is entered, the URL will display.
The Virtual Class / Video Link URL field can be used for any URL, not just for virtual class and video links. Consider offering students a 'one-stop-shop' where they can access all class materials, e.g., videos of choreography, music files, and links to virtual classes by adding all of the information to a Google document. This allows you to share many resources with only one link. Another option would be to add the links to a page on your website and make the page private. Then only those students currently enrolled in the class (and makeups) will be able to access that page via their portals.
