Questions about what I do and how I work
In the status bar at the top, click on 'Activities'. A list of all activities will open. You can also organise them according to your needs, from school grade to the text type you want to focus on!
Go to your profile and click 'My Activities'. From here, click the blue button at the top 'New Activity'. A window will open, click on 'Create Activity' and you're done!
You can upload as many texts as you like, as long as they are in .txt or .docx format. You can write or copy a text directly. Not enough for you? You can also upload a text via URL!
For each activity you create, click on 'Tags' in the left-hand bar. Inside, you can choose between "choose from library" to find pre-made tag decks created by FEM experts, or "create new". You can then select the colour, decide whether to create subgroups and give your tag a title!
To annotate a piece of text or a word in an activity, select it as you would a normal string of text on a word processor. A selection menu will appear with all the tags available for the activity, simply choose the one you want. Happy tagging!
In your activity dashboard, click on an activity and, on the left-hand side, you will find the 'People' tab. You can add your students with their email address there.
