Teacher Web Pages at DV Teacher web pages vary at DV, but you will find them linked to their SF pages. Some teachers have created their own pages using web programs, others have used a program called TUOL for their sites, and still others are using the School Fusion web pages. Each teacher will tell you how and when they expect you to use their websites. Here are 2 examples:
Sample of a teacher web page that is done in SchoolFusion… Teacher web pages done in school fusion will look similar and may have any of the following classroom items: Calendar, Announcements, Files, Agenda, Class work, Links, Discussion Topics, Videos, Blogs etc. They may also have homework drop boxes, if they do, the teachers will review those with you in class.
Teacher web site linked through SF… This teacher links to her web page that uses the TUOL system, others will have their sites linked through their Announcements or Link sections of the page.
Sample of a club page that is done in SF … If you want to join a club page just click on the “Join this FusionPage” link. The club sponsor will see your name and approve you to join. Once you are added you will see the club page added to your fusion page listing in your Personal Dashboard.
