Happy Friday teachers!
We have 3 announcements for you which we hope you will like:
- New classroom
We are phasing in our new classroom design! Starting from today, 10% of all lessons will be in our new classroom, and over time, all lessons will be conducted in the new classroom. What has changed you ask?
– Sleek new redesign which is more user-friendly for teachers and students
– The ability to choose which slide number you want
– Larger video feed so you and your student can see each other better
– Improvements to chat notifications, the student locking feature, the pen tool and the student card
Once we can see that this new classroom is stable, we will start adding other features, such as a new and improved set of stickers, classroom skins, and dice.
We hope you love it!
- Updates to ad lesson payments
Bookings and payments for ad lessons are now automated 🎉
Payments will show up as double in your billing summary, and lessons will show up in your schedule with this special tag “trial ad”.
- Teacher rewards
We are pleased to announce a new teacher rewards system we will be rolling out over the next few months. We will be in contact with you over the coming weeks to tell you your current lesson count, job title and rewards that you are eligible for, so it is not necessary to contact the admins – we will contact you 😊
It goes without saying that if you are at the top of the list, you are eligible for the rewards at the levels below you. We thank you in advance for your patience while we get this program up and running for everyone!
Please also be aware, that we will be adding new teacher terms and conditions to our website from June 1st to be compliant with new laws coming into effect in the Russian Federation. The following text will be added to the new terms and conditions:
The Teacher should abide by the following law when engaging with students from the Russian Federation; “it is not allowed to use educational activities to incite social, racial, national or religious hatred, for agitation that promotes the exclusivity, superiority or inferiority of citizens on the basis of social, racial, national, religious or linguistic affiliation, their attitude to religion, including through the communication of unreliable information about the historical, national, religious and cultural traditions of peoples, as well as to induce actions that contradict the Constitution of the Russian Federation”.
Have a great weekend!
