How do I collaborate with my students?

Students and teachers can use the Live Session feature to collaborate with each other in real-time on an assignment. 

How to create a collaborative assignment and start a Live Session

  1. Create a New Assignment, click on the Attachments tab, select Create Audio and click Publish Assignment. You will now be directed to the Mix Editor. 

  2. Once you've added your sounds for your assignment in the Mix Editor, click Publish
  3. In the Publish Assignments Modal, click on Create Student Group
  4. Key in the name of students you wish to collaborate with and click Publish

  5. Once published, student(s) must then click on Start Assignment and choose Teacher's Assignment in the pop-up window to begin working on the assignment
