New Year, New Features!
September 5, 2019
It's our favorite time of year - the beginning of a brand new school year! While you've been working on lesson plans, professional development, preparing your classroom, and (hopefully!) getting a little summer relaxation in, we've been hard at work on new MusicFirst Classroom features for you.
You're a hard-working educator, and you need tools that are going to make your job a little bit easier. So we listened to what you asked for, and we're happy to let you know that we have some very exciting new software integrations and features that we're sure you're going to love.
Share Assignments on the Remind App
MusicFirst Classroom integrates with the popular Remind app! You can now easily share tasks and assignments with your students from the MusicFirst Classroom with a single click.
Activating the "Share on Remind" feature is easy! Site admins have the ability to enable this feature for all users. Simply:
Navigate to the "Settings" menu > Select "Options" > Enable "Share on Remind"
And that's it. (Told you it was easy!)
Assign Video Recording Tasks
What's better than hearing your students playing? Seeing them, too! With the newVideo Submission feature, you can set video recording assignments and students can then upload these files directly to theMusicFirst Classroom.
Since MusicFirst Classroom has unlimited file storage for teachers, you'll never have to worry about how you'll store large quantities of video files. No more digging around in a cloud-based storage app; everything is exactly where you need it!
Add a Backing Track
You've asked for it, and we've delivered. You now have the ability to add a pre-recorded backing track to audio recording tasks in the MusicFirst Classroom. This feature is perfect for:
- Student audio submissions for band, choral, or orchestra ensemble pieces, allowing students to hear their part in context.
- Adding a recorded instrumental accompaniment.
