Thanks, Mike! This is helpful!!
When you have a minute, I’d like to describe a bit of our context and to check that my understanding of the recommendation in the post is correct and doable:
We are offering three coding clubs. About 22 undergraduate ‘mentors’ are doing the teaching. Since the clubs are remote this spring, the mentors need a good platform for monitoring how coders are progressing. Would it make sense for us to create a section for each club which is owned by one lead mentor and then create sections for each of the other mentors and ‘join’ each student to the sections of all the mentors teaching the club the student is enrolled in (choosing the ‘Yes’ option at step 8)? So a student could be simultaneously in up to 10 sections. (The mentors are not distributed evenly across the clubs.) With such a set up, will a student see a single section or multiple sections? (Seeing 10 sections and having to select one to join might be a bit intimidating at first—but maybe not if it doesn’t matter which the student select.)
Also, could you point us to documentation for the teacher interface so we can determine what monitoring capability the platform gives us? We’d like to be able to see information such as what activities coders have attempted, how many times they tried an activity, if they succeeded, time info, etc. Anything to help determine if they are engaging, where they might be getting stuck, etc.
Thanks very much for the feedback (and even more for the great community resources for learning coding)!
