The Teacher Menu

April 25, 2014

Accessing the Teacher Menu

The Teacher Menu is only available when LearnPad is unlocked. It contains resources that you only want to make available to the teacher, such as an unlocked browser.

The Teacher Menu is available by tapping “Teacher” on the extended menu:

Assigning a Custom Teacher Menu

The Teacher Menu is a category that is assigned to the organisation. All LearnPads enrolled in the organisation will use the same teacher menu. You can assign any of your categories to be the Teacher Menu within your organisation settings.

Simply log in and click the organisation name at the top right of the screen:

Locate the “Content Settings” section and select any of your organisations existing categories from the “Teacher Category” list:
