Do you create your own assignments and worksheets? Do you use and assign materials from MyCommunity for your students? MyFiles, the red tab in MYcaert, is a great place for you to store your assignments, PowerPoints, and your own teacher files for each lesson and/or unit.
Once you have created a course outline, your MyFiles automatically updates to include an overall file for the course. The overall course file, includes three smaller files: “Current Assignments”, “Expired Assignments”, and “Teacher Files”. You can store your files for your courses within the online MYcaert portal. What could be better to have all of your materials in ONE location?
Once you have uploaded files into the correct folders, and assigned materials to students, you can actually view who has completed and turned in the assignments. You are also able to grade and comment on your students’ completed assignments.
If you find materials within MyCommunity that you find beneficial for your class, you can also directly save those materials to “MyFiles,” by selecting the resource, and then selecting the course.
We've often been asked if MYcaert.com has a search bar for users. It does!
Once you've logged in, under the "My Courses" tab, along the left, are ways to Generate List of MYcaert materials. The second to last option, "By Vocabulary Term" is often the desired search method. Using as many keywords as you need, and selecting search, a list of materials you have access to, is created.
You can select as many lessons that suit your needs, and a course outline will be created. To select more than one item, hold down the "Ctrl" button on a PC, or the "Command" button on a Mac, and select your items.
You can add those lessons to an existing course outline, or create a new one.
You may find it helpful to search by your own state's standards, or by learning area. Those options are also found under "My Courses", along the left of the drop down menu. By Learning Area will allow you to select specific options within science, math, and language arts. Whereas, by "_________ Standard" will allow you to generate materials by specific academic standards.
