Multiple Teachers feature now available!
As you may know, Duolingo for Schools only allowed one teacher to follow a particular student. This meant that, if a parent also wanted to follow their child’s progress, or if a different teacher wanted to use Duolingo with that student, they were unable to do so. :(
Great news! We are now releasing an update that will allow students to be tracked by more than one teacher. If you are a student, you can still keep track of who is following your learning progress by going your Progress sharing settings.
So now, as a student, you can enter a teacher’s or parent’s email address and join one of their existing classrooms (from the same settings page). If the email you enter is already associated with a teacher account, Duolingo will automatically offer a list of that teacher’s classrooms for students to choose from. This avoids typos and makes everything super easy!
If a student wants to send updates of their progress to a parent who does not have a Duolingo account, they can enter their email anyway. Parents or private teachers (for example) can still receive updates of student progress via email. Remember these settings are done from the student account. We hope this makes things easier for teachers who want to “share” a student or learners who want to start a friendly family competition.
Please note that for now, these settings cannot be edited through the mobile apps.
Happy sharing, and happy teaching!
Just when I thought you had outdone yourselves, you do it again! A big congrats to the Duolingo for Schools team, and thank you!
One question: Will Duo for Schools ever be its own app?
I agree with you. A great feature would be the ability to assign lessons directly from the site.
Merci - Merci!!! This is going to be very helpful for parents, a teacher (and possibly a tutor) to keep track of a single student in a productive, non - confusing and non - restrictive way. Thanks so much! I had hoped the Duolingo Team would find a way to make this work and you did it!! A million thank yous from a very happy and extremely satisfied user, parent and teacher!!!
Hi! You can always create a new post if you have a question, but it works to do it here as well. :] You can join a classroom by asking your teacher for the "invite students" link. When you click on the link (while logged in), a pop-up will ask you if you want to allow your teacher to track you. Accept and you should be good to go!
If they don't know how to generate a link, tell them to take a look at this link.
HELP Please. I created my classroom account under my personal account which is a student of the language I want to learn. How can I change my "Teacher Classroom" to use my teacher email address? I don't want my students emails going to my personal email address but my teacher email address. If I change the email address under my personal account, it simply changes my personal email. Also, I don't want to delete the classroom because it may lock up the classroom name. Any suggestions?
