Q. What is the best way to ensure that the videos I am making as a teacher are being seen by my students on any device? A: As a teacher you want to ensure that the videos you make in activities and as feedback are being viewed by all students. The best option for students or teachers is to make the videos on an iPad and to send them using the Class Pass app. You can pre-record a video on the iPad and then send the video to a student or to your entire class via the class pass app. Remember to approve the posts so that students can view these video posts.
If you are working on a Mac or PC, then another option- is to pre-record a video for an activity or post. Once you’ve finished the recording then you can make the activity and upload the video as an attachment. Please note that if you are using a Mac or PC - please be in the Chrome browser when working in myBlueprint.

Other teacher account features are available only by logging-in to the website.

Teachers may wish to colour-code the portfolios to help reflect subject/curricular areas.
