New to Hapara Dashboard and Google Apps for Education?
Hapara Dashboard helps schools and teachers use Google Apps in the classroom by providing structure, visibility, and ease of use across the entire Google Apps suite.
If you are a domain Super Administrator who is new to Google Apps for Education, then becoming familiar with your new Google Apps environment is a great place to start! It's also key to ensuring that you make the most of your transition to Google Apps by using Hapara Dashboard.
Before setting up Hapara Dashboard, you may want to read Google's Support materials to familiarize yourself with Google Apps, your domain, and your Google Apps admin console. You can find such materials in the Google Apps Help Center.
How does Hapara Dashboard work?
Using Google Apps, Hapara Dashboard creates a structure of classes that teachers and students are added to.
A structure is set up in your domain for each class that is loaded, and is used by Hapara Dashboard in the creation of Hapara Dashboard class dashboards.
When student are added to classes, Hapara Dashboard automatically creates the content required based on their classes' customization, such as a folder structure in Google Drive, Calendar, Sites, Blogs, and more.
Hapara Dashboard classes give teachers in-depth visibility into their students' activity, as well as a number of tools to help teachers perform tasks and manage their class and student work in Google Apps.
