OK… it says “school”. It says “Non Profit School” We got a cram school, doesn’t make much profit but I guess it’s still “profit” can I register it.
The service is “free” to not for profit schools. But, the way I understand it, all schools here are “for profit”. One relative who is a public school teacher still gets pressured to sign up new students. Same when she worked for a private school.
Anyway, I’m tempted to continue signing up under the cram school name and see what happens. If caught, I’ll say my English is no good.
I’m still looking for a way to share and allow the kids to add files. This GEPT round is over. I have some time to come up with something for the next round. It will be a month before the kids get their scores.
This is really an informal group that encompasses my daughter, her friends who attended our cram school.
Face book is not the easiest because of the video conversion. And my students would have to e-mail me the mp3 if they wanted to submit something from home and I would have to convert it first.
I really don’t want to spend an hour or two converting files.
Format: Class practice. I’d edit it and produce two versions the first try and the final try.
If the kid is not satisfied or can’t come into group practice, I’d like kid to be able to submit their corrected or make up version.
I’d like to be able to comment on it as well as let students comment on each other.
I’d like to organize it by subject/lesson then by time.
Facebook organization is really tricky. To post a group of exercises for students for one session, I have to post it in reverse order. That too is annoying. And if I make a mistake, I have to delete everything and repost.
Some of you suggested albums. Video albums seem almost invisible to the cell phone.
To access the video album, I had to find a drop down menu that was also hard to get to. I don’t think my kids would like to bother.
OK, I need a hosting site that will require little work like Google Classroom or some great navigation lessons on setting up YouTube or Face book for this purpose.
Or, I could take up the suggestion of creating my own website. In that case I need some templates and tutorials as well as a good site recommendation.
