Having teacher rights means that your netTrekker experience will be different from a student’s experience. As a teacher, your home page will include quick access to your Standards, as well as to an array of Teacher Support materials. In addition, having teacher rights allows you to save searches communally among netTrekker users in your school and district, and to create classes – just a few of the features in My Content.
When you originally register as a netTrekker user, you are automatically registered with a Student role unless your netTrekker Administrator has created a unique Teacher Registration Key. To change your role to Teacher, either your netTrekker Administrator will need to change your role through the User Management function of Admin Tools, or you will need to get the Teacher Code from your netTrekker administrator.
Stepping Through the Role Change Wizard
1. Once you acquire your Teacher Code, go to Profile in your user menu, and click on Change Role next to the current role of Student.
2. Enter the Teacher Code you received from your netTrekker Administrator in the Teacher Code box.
3. Enter your first name, last name, and email address, and verify your email address. (These are all required fields.)
4. Once you submit the data you have entered in the Role Change Wizard, you will receive an automated email from the netTrekker Team. Click on the link provided to verify your email address.
You do NOT have to verify your email address in order for your role to be changed to Teacher. However, as a teacher, until you verify your email address, you will continue to see the warning triangle next to your name at the top of each netTrekker page. Clicking on the triangle will take you to your My Profile page, where you can enter and confirm your email address.
