How do I give my students access to StageAgent theatre resources?
In your StageAgent teacher portal, you first will want to organize your students into classes/groups. You can customize the settings separately for each group that you manage. A 'group' on StageAgent for Schools typically equals a class. But you can organize your groups however you wish. Once you create a group, you can then add students to that group. Each student will be assigned a unique 6-digit passcode that will allow him/her to log in and access StageAgent resources.
Step 1: CREATE A CLASS/GROUP
Step 2: CUSTOMIZE YOUR GROUP
Fill out the group name and audience. Then, select a monthly quiz point goal (you can adjust this goal at any time) and your content filtering preference. Next, you can choose to not display any of the optional content modules. Lastly, you can optionally embed your FlipGrid teacher and student accounts.
Step 3: ADD STUDENTS TO YOUR CLASS
After you click the CREATE button, your new group will now be displayed on your list of groups/classes. (You might need to reload your browser).
Click the MANAGE GROUP button.
Once you are on your group page in your portal, you can start adding your students. Input a student's nickname or first name/last initial and click ADD STUDENT. The system will automatically create a unique 6-digit passcode associated with that student.
* You also can 'bulk add students' by importing a CSV file. Please note that your school's firewall security settings might block this feature. If this is the case, you can avoid the firewall issues by using the 'bulk add' feature on your personal computer on a non-school network.
After adding a student, you should now see him or her in the 'Students Enrolled' section with his/her passcode.
Step 4: PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH THEIR PASSCODES
Give each of your students his/her unique passcode. Instruct them to navigate to https://stageagent.org/signin and input their codes to sign in.
