Assigning the lesson

You've finished the lesson and ready to assign it.  If you're on the lesson, click on the IL button at the top of the toolbar and select your class to assign it.  
If you haven't made a class yet, do that first by either creating one or importing one from Google Classroom.

Checklist:

  • All students have extension installed
  • All students enrolled in your IL class (self-enrolled or via Google Classroom)
  • Assign lesson to the class
  • Send link to students

Assign from the lesson:
Click on the IL logo at the top of the toolbar and select the class(es) you want to assign to.

Assign from the Teacher Dashboard:
Click on the "assign" button for the lesson and select the class.

Google Classroom

If you're using Google Classroom you can assign the lesson directly to your Google Classroom from InsertLearning.  

Other LMS

  1. If you're using another LMS like Schoology, Edmodo, Moodle, or Canvas, assign the lesson to your InsertLearning class.
  2. In the area where you assigned the lesson to your InsertLearning class, there's a button with a link icon at the bottom right. Click on that button and it will copy a link to the lesson. (Watch the above video starting at 0:30)

With No LMS

Students can find all of their assigned lesson in their own Student Dashboard in InsertLearning. They can get there by going to insertlearning.com and clicking on the dashboard link in the upper right or opening a new tab and clicking the IL extension.
If you have your own system for sharing links with your students, go to the area where you assigned the lesson and click on the button with the link icon at the bottom right. This will copy a link to the lesson that you can paste in your own system.

How students find and get to the lesson

There are four ways students can get to an assigned lesson.  IMPORTANT: students must be enrolled in the class and have the IL extension installed to view the lesson.

  1. If you use Google Classroom, you can assign lessons directly to those classes. This will create a new assignment in Google Classroom that your students can click on.
  2. Students can see all assigned lessons in their InsertLearning dashboard.
  3. You can copy a link to the lesson by clicking on the link icon at the bottom right of the Assign box. (Watch the above video starting at 0:30) 
  4. Link to the page you created a lesson on and instruct students to click on the InsertLearning extension button to load the lesson.
