Many TeacherEase-only customers import data nightly from their SIS. This keeps the two systems consistent and greatly helps usability. One challenge teachers often face is identifying sections. It can be hard to match the name in the system (from the SIS) to the actual classroom in the real world.
To help with the situation, we implemented nicknames for classes/subjects. Teachers can now enter their own names (“Period 1”), and more easily manage the list. They can also hide sections rarely used.
Instructor Main > Setup > Classes/Subjects > Customize Class/Subject List
Also click on the “gear” icon next to class/subject lists to access the UI
While this is a small change, we wanted to do a news article since it affects so many teachers. Enjoy!
