Watch the video introducing you to the topics we will be covering in this course.
As the administrator of any system, the constant barrage of questions and requests from users can sometimes overwhelm you. As you quickly move from one task to another, it can feel like you are trapped in a never-ending, 8-bit video game in which a genetically engineered, maniacal squirrel, intent on world domination, is out to get you.
Maniacal Squirrel’s plan for world domination is to disrupt the professional learning and growth of educators everywhere - starting with educators who use Edivate. For your school or district, you may be the only thing standing between your teachers and the effects of his evil plan.
To defeat Maniacal Squirrel, you must find the power-ups to transform yourself into an Admin Ninja by learning how to: send and reset passwords for teachers who forget their Edivate login information; manage user accounts when your district gets new teachers, a teacher moves from one school to another, or when a teacher leaves the district altogether; and manage system privileges to ensure that every administrator has access to the features and tools they need.
Insert your quarter and press play; it’s time to begin.
Just like most other video game heroes, you have special "super powers" that differentiate you from others. For Edivate, these special powers are called User Tools.
