A Central Site
As the instructor, you get a central site to sign up students. It’s a full WordPress install, which you are the administrator and you can use for anything you would like.
- Sign up Students
- Add plugins for Analytics
- Add plugins such as BBPress to allow your students to communicate
- Add your own theme from thousands of options and customize it to however you would like
- Use a custom domain for this site and student sites, or use one of the DragonTeach domains
Easy Student Signup
Your students sign up on your central site and a WordPress site, tailored to exactly as you need it to be for your class, is created for them. They are up and Running in less than 5 Minutes
The student gets a full standard hosting package, just like they would get if they signed up for a Website from any typical hosting provider.
Students select the class they are in when they sign up. As the instructor, you have an admin panel that will allow you to administer them, including:
- View the list of students for each class and their marks
- Make changes on their WordPress site to add/remove users, update their password, etc.
- Regenerate their WordPress site
- Update the URL for the student site
Build rules to match your assignments or labs and then run them against all your students, either on a schedule when the assignment is due, or on demand.
I used DragonTeach to automate the grading in our web design class. We went from taking 10 hours/week marking labs, to less than 15 minutes. It was really easy to use for both the instructors and the students.
DragonTeach makes it easy for my students to get a WordPress site installed, exactly as required for my classes. Whenever I have any issues with any of the student sites, I can count on support to fix the problem.
In my marketing class, DragonTeach helps me get our students up and running faster with full access to all the WordPress features. It saves me time in the class which I can use to help my students succeed.
