HelpKidzLearn are excited to announce that Student Profiles are now available. They have created a short video (1m 38s) demonstrating the ease in which you can create student profiles.
Make learning ‘fun’ and personalise your learner’s experience by including their name, an avatar and colour, as well as their preferred method of access within HelpKidzLearn Games & Activities, ChooseIt Maker, ChooseIt Readymades and Inclusive Stories.
Creating new profiles is quick and easy. Personalise your learner’s profile by including their name or identifying word, and choose an avatar and colour.
Choose your learner’s preferred method of access: mouse, one or two switch access, touch, or eye gaze. When an activity is launched the access for this learner will already be applied.
Organise your learners’ profiles into groups with a simple management tool. Perfect for organising your profiles and ideal when using HelpKidzLearn with a class or large group.
Pre-loaders have been updated to include the avatar of your learners to increase engagement for your learners and make learning ‘fun’.
