We have good news for those of you who have been using the Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) resources on FOSSweb!
The IWB files on FOSSweb will be updated so that all links in the files will work properly with FOSSweb 2.0! All IWB users will need to re-download and replace the IWB files on their local computers to take advantage of this update. The new links will be in place by May 2015. In the meantime, video and multimedia links can be accessed by going directly to FOSSweb and going to Digital-Only Resources for a particular module.
For FOSS Second Edition users, IWB resources are now available for download at no cost (IWB resources for 2nd Edition are for grades 3-6 modules). If you haven't given them a try yet, you can now for free!
If you want your students to access the student online resources on FOSSweb, you'll need to set up a Class Page. You should never share your personal FOSSweb password with anyone, especially your students. To set up a Class Page, follow the steps outlined below.
Insert a Class Page Title (the title on the page students will see), a Class Login Name (the login name students will use), a Class Password* (for students' use), and select the Modules to Use (modules this class will need access to).
*Please note the password for your class must conform to requirements that are slightly different from our teacher password requirements. Student passwords must:
Remember, you can set up as many class pages—for as many periods or different classes—as you'd like!
