    Hello Everyone,

     

    We have some great news- there is now a way to add a co-teacher to your assignments! Please see the steps below:

     

    1. The main teacher creates a Soundtrap Assignment by clicking on the "Create Assignment" button and creating a brand new assignment.



    2. After the Assignment is created, then the main teacher clicks the "+" button to Invite the 2nd co-teacher to join the Assignment.

    3. The 2nd co-teacher accepts the invitation by clicking the “Accept all” button only.

      Important Note: Both the main teacher and co-teacher should refresh their dashboards to confirm whether or not they've been successfully added to the Assignment as a collaborator. The assignment should have 2 collaborators on the Assignment before sharing the assignment link with students. If the co-teacher is not added at the very start of the process, then the co-teacher will not be automatically added to any student copies of the assignment and must be manually invited to collaborate.

    4. The teacher clicks the “Share Assignment” button and clicks on “Share link” followed by “Copy link. The assignment link gets published in the LMS or shared with students.

    5. The Students click on the Soundtrap assignment link and a student copy of the assignment is created when they save their work.

    6. Now both the primary teacher and the co-teacher are automatically listed as collaborators on the student’s project and can see the student’s progress/work. 



    This is true for the standalone product with no LMS integration and works with the Schoology integration. This process does not work for Music First Online Classroom, unfortunately.

    Hi Roland,

    So nice to hear from you on the Community!  This is an awesome question! 

    In order to access a project, the co-teacher would need to be a collaborator. Once you have created and shared an assignment through Google Classroom, each student will need to manually add your co-teacher to their assignment. Here are the steps to share with your students for adding a collaborator to a project. 

    Thank you so much for adding this question to the Community!  

    Cheerfully,

    Audrey

    Thank you for the quick response! :-)

    Is it possible to add this as new feature, that when in Google Classroom there is more than one teacher assigned to the project, they will be automatically invited as owner of the project? (They have to be owners in Soundtrap first of course).

    Regards

    Roland

    Cosigning this. Avoiding having to follow up on hundreds of middle school students adding both teachers to a project would be great. Roland – you may have arrived at this workaround already, but I circumvented this issue by giving my co-teacher/recording engineer my login and password.

    Hello,

    I am in agreement. I have about 300 student in my choir program. I have an assistant director. I do not want to explain to 300 students (many of them with IEPs, 504s and other special needs) how to invite another teacher to their project so that that teacher can listen and help with grading. It would be really nice to take out that step if he could have equal access because his role is teacher in the group. 

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you for sharing and for bringing this topic back up.  It is a suggestion we hear often and have shared the feedback with developers.   

    We appreciate the creative ways in which you are using Soundtrap and especially love that you are using it with students with exceptionalities.  Please continue to share your unique workflows and let us know how we can continue to support ALL learners.  I will update the channel when this feature has been implemented.  I'm curious if any teachers in the community have discovered ways to work around this?  Please share your solutions if you have them.

    Cheerfully,

    Audrey

    Just wondering if the feature mentioned above has been added...  My colleague and I are coteaching a class and would both like to access assignments for grading.  I know the work-around is having students add one of us as a collaborator on every assignment but it's kind of inefficient.  Thanks!
