  2. A block titled 'People' should be visible on the left sidebar. This block displays the users, who are currently members of the classroom. Click on the arrow beside the 'See Everyone' button at the bottom of the block.
  3. A small dropdown menu appears with one of the options being 'Add People'. Click on that menu option.
  4. In the 'Add People' form, select the role you would like to assign to the people you are adding. Note: This role would be the role the people would have within the current classroom.
  5. Type in e-mail addresses of people to be added to the classroom. You could also type in the names of the users, if they have already been registered / added / bulk-imported into Teamie.

Thoughts, Questions & Whiteboard

What is a Thought?

A Thought is anything that you would like to share with your network or classroom peers. It could be a simple status update, or an interesting article link, or an image or document. A thought is meant to initiate a discussion and get comments and feedback.

What is the difference between a Thought and a Question?

They are almost the same with some differences such as:

  1. With a question, you can attach a poll and get user responses & feedback.
  2. For a question, other users can indicate if they have the same question instead of a Like button.
  3. For a question, users can respond with answers, and the author of the question or the teacher of the classroom can mark any comment as the right answer. This makes it easy to follow a question and its answer.
  4. For a question’s response, users can vote up or vote down an answer.
  5. The difference between questions and thoughts makes it easy to filter between discussions and questions (especially during the crunch times before an exam or assignment).

What is a Whiteboard?

A whiteboard is your classroom’s collaborative discussion area. A whiteboard is like a newsfeed where you can post stuff that is important and also read all posts from users in the classroom, and it allows you to respond and interact with the class directly from the whiteboard.

In general, the whiteboard is the default page that appears when you navigate to a classroom.

How do I tag users on Teamie?

You can tag users by prefixing @ to the name of the user you want to tag. Teamie will automatically suggest to you the names of users, who are part of your connections on the platform. For example, to tag John Smith, you need to type @John and you will see the platform auto-suggest the rest of the name.

In general, users get notified whenever they are tagged by another user. So tagging a user is usually a good way of drawing the attention of a user to the thought / question you are sharing.

Can I use hashtags in a Thought / Question on Teamie?

Yes, hashtags are enabled on Teamie. Just write any word with a # sign as a prefix, and it becomes a search-able entity on the platform. For example, #Assignment3 was tough. OR Teamie is awesome #FTW

How can I post an announcement on Teamie?

An announcement is a thought or a question shared with the classroom, but is of high priority. In general, members of a classroom get e-mail notifications whenever an announcement is posted. In some institutes, posting an announcement may also send an SMS to all members of the classroom.

Only users with appropriate permissions can post announcements on Teamie. In general, teachers and administrators have the ability to post announcements.

To post an announcement:

  1. Navigate to the classroom in which you wish to make the announcement.
  2. Click the textbox in the Thought Share Box and type in the text of the announcement.
  3. Tick the checkbox that says 'Post this thought as an announcement' or 'Post this question as an announcement'.
  4. Click the 'Share' button to post the announcement.

Teamie Points

What are Teamie Points?

Teamie points can be viewed as a reward for user activity on Teamie. A user earns Teamie points whenever he does certain actions like posting a thought, giving the right answer to a question etc.

A user can have different number of Teamie points for the different set of classrooms that he / she belongs to. On the profile of the user, the total Teamie points earned by that particular user (across all classrooms) is displayed.

What's the use of having Teamie points?

The idea behind Teamie points is to encourage & reward user participation on Teamie.

Teamie points can also be viewed as a measure of user activity. Every classroom on Teamie has a Leaderboard that lists the top students based on the number of Teamie points they have earned. One glance at the Leaderboard can easily tell you who the most active students of the classroom are.

Moreover, for a given user, based on his Teamie points across different classrooms, one can judge his level of interest and engagement in each of those classrooms.

Will Teamie points ever be deducted?

Oh yes! A very simple example is when you delete a thought you had shared. Posting a thought earns you Teamie points and deleting the thought you had posted could lead to Teamie points deduction.

The site administrator can also set negative points to discourage certain actions. For instance, every time a user's comment is voted down, that user could lose Teamie points. The number of Teamie points deducted is not fixed and depends on the value set by the site administrator.

Quizzes

What is the difference between an online Quiz and an offline Quiz?

An offline Quiz is a quiz that took place offline, whose scores you wish to record on Teamie.

What is a public Quiz?

When creating or editing a quiz, the quiz creator has the ability to set the privacy of a quiz as 'Public' or 'Private'. If the privacy is set to 'Private', only members of the classroom can view the quiz. If the privacy is set to 'Public', then any user on Teamie has access to the quiz. The quiz becomes a part of the Quiz Bank.

The advantage in making a quiz public is that other teachers on Teamie would have access to its questions and could make use of them in the quizzes they create. Read this section on Creating Quiz using Question Bank for more details on how this is done.

Note: If Teamie is deployed at your institute, then by default public quizzes are visible only within your institute. They would not be accessible by people from other institutes. However, on Teamie Instant, public Quizzes are accessible by any user from anywhere in the world.

What is a Question Bank? What is a Quiz Bank?

Similar to a Lesson Bank, a Question Bank is the collection of all the questions from the public quizzes created by teachers and other contributors on Teamie.

Depending on your institute's preferences, the Question Bank would contain questions from all teachers around the world or only from teachers at your institute.

From the Question Bank, a teacher can select questions and create a new Quiz for his/her class. This saves time, and enables users to reuse and modify existing questions and expose students to assignments from other teachers around the world.

A Quiz Bank is similar to a Question Bank. A quiz bank is a collection of all public quizzes created by teachers on Teamie.

To view the Question / Quiz Bank, read this section on How to View the Question / Quiz Bank.

How do I view the Question / Quiz Bank?

  2. Look for the 'Quizzes' block on the right sidebar. Click on the arrow in the red button at the bottom of the block.
  3. If you want to view the Question Bank, select 'View the Question Bank' from the dropdown. If you want to view the Quiz Bank, select 'View the Quiz Bank' from the dropdown.

Privacy

Is my profile on Teamie public?

Your profile is visible only to your connections. It is not visible to people who are not on the platform, and those who are not in the same classrooms that you are a member of.

What happens when I post a thought anonymously?

As a student, a user is allowed to post thoughts or questions anonymously. The posts and comments made anonymously are visible to all users in the classroom. However, the name of the author is not visible to other students. Only teachers can see which student has posted anonymously.

The purpose of this functionality is to encourage shy students to ask questions or post comments. It is to avoid scenarios wherein a student does not participate in discussions, thinking what he/she has to say is not “good enough”.

In order to avoid misuse, the teacher can see which anonymous post has been made by which student.
