Optional settings overview
There are many ways to customize Hāpara to meet the specific needs of your school or district. This includes specifying what teachers in domains or schools see and can do when using Hapara tools. These options do not require or impact your data loads. Changes take effect immediately, subject to a minor delay as this information is propagated across the data centers.
This article will review some of the ways you can customize your school's Hāpara experience.
Hāpara uses your local time to determine if teachers should be able to see student activity in Highlights and for scheduling things like guided browsing sessions.
Document management settings
You can customize what student documents from Google Drive that teachers have access to in this section. For more details on document management, see this article.
You can give teachers in your school varying levels of control over the management of their class rosters. For more on this, see this article.
Here you can decide if teachers should have the ability to change students' Google account passwords. This can be helpful for younger students who often forget their passwords.
Here you can customize what happens when teachers or students click on emails link in Hāpara by determining which email client opens.
Here you can customize how teachers interact with classes.
All Classes access
First, you can determine which classes teachers in your school have access to. By default, they will only be able to access classes that they are directly associated with. However, some schools choose to give teachers access to all of the classes in the school. This can be helpful when you have teachers fill in for one another or collaborate frequently.
Custom landing page
You can also decide where teachers land when they click into a class–either Highlights, where they can monitor students' browsing, or Dashboard, where they can access students' work from Google Drive.
