New school year, new teacher portal

By Natasha Husein on

When teachers head back to school in 2019, they’ll be equipped with a new Clever Portal that will allow them to search more easily, print Badges quickly, and more.

Any time Clever can make teachers’ lives easier, we’re all smiles! That’s why we’re extra happy to announce that we’re rolling out a brand new experience for teachers in time for 2019-20 Back to School. We heard from district admins and teachers alike that their experience in the Portal could be simpler and more intuitive. With this new Clever portal redesign, teachers will get:

  • A clean interface
  • Improved search and favoriting of resources
  • Customization of Teacher Pages for specific groups of students
  • Quicker access to popular teacher tools, like printing Badges and generating backup login codes

Welcome to Homeroom.

When teachers log in, they’ll enter Homeroom, just like their students! From this new landing page, they can find all their favorite resources, create class pages, and access favorites.

Find everything more easily.

We know teachers don’t have time to be searching for things. That’s why we’ve improved our search so that they can find anything on their portal – and we mean anything.

The new search bar helps teachers find apps, students, resources, and more.

Make it your own.

Teachers love to make their classrooms their own — why should that be any different in a digital classroom? Now teachers can customize and organize the resources in their portal so that it makes sense for them. Teachers can create a Page for each section, summer school, small group, or after school. The possibilities are endless!

Teacher’s pets.

Keep those favorite resources handy! With the click of a “heart”, teachers can favorite a resource to move it from their District Applications page to their Homeroom page for easy access.

Give it a whirl–with no risk.

Take advantage of all these new features today! Teachers have the ability to opt-in to the new experience to take it for a test drive. Teachers can revert back to the older version of the portal until early July, when we’ll automatically upgrade everyone to the new version.

Teachers can opt-in to the new portal at any time, and will have the option to revert back to the older version of portal until early July.

Set up the Portal in less than 30 minutes so your teachers try it out over the summer. You’ll even have time to include it in your summer teacher training! Get started here.

We’ll also be soliciting feedback so we can make the experience even better. And you can watch the recording of our Sneak Peek webinar here.

We hope you enjoy the updates!
