Educator Development

Participate has an announcement – literally!

Like many educators this time of year, we’ve been busy here at Participate. And we’re excited to show you what we’ve been working on. In addition to our website’s recent makeover, we’ve added a new feature to the Participate platform: announcements. Located on your portal’s home tab, announcements keep community members in the know regarding important updates, happenings and events specific to their community.

Similar to a news feed, announcements provide timely, succinct bits of information in the form of text, image and/or video. They can be created by community members with administrative permissions, such as community leaders, and shared to inform an entire organization, school or district. In addition, district administrators in particular can select which schools they would like to receive their message, making sending specific updates simpler and more relevant.

To access announcements, log in to your Participate account and head to your home tab. Stay up to date by scrolling through and reviewing any announcements your community has shared, as well as referencing pertinent past news.

If you’re an admin and have news to share with your organization, select “Create announcement” and get to informing! Sharing information via the Participate portal has never been easier.
