Class or Group Administrator Checklist
7 steps to make on-boarding to HEARD seamless for your classroom or group:
▢ Inform your community. Email your community to let them know you’re moving communication to HEARD. Here’s a sample announcement letter you can edit and share. And this Quick Start Guide can help with seamless onboarding.
▢ Designate a Community Manager. Assign someone to add and remove members and facilitate communication on the tool.
▢ Post content before your community joins. Whether it’s a welcome post or photos from a recent event, this content will give your community something to see and engage in when they join. For classrooms, we encourage teachers to post a welcome message to their class.
▢ Provide do's and dont's for posting on HEARD. Here are sample guidelines you can edit and share.
▢ Encourage people to create their own groups. Your community members can create other groups -- i.e., admin group, an event planning committee, etc.
▢ Encourage adoption and participation. In order for HEARD to work effectively, it’s important that the entire community use the platform. Your encouragement can go a long way in making this happen
▢ Contact our team at HEARD to help:
Add links your school uses most. Email our team at email@example.com with links to online content that your community regularly uses -- i.e., school website, lunch menu, handbook, etc. We’ll add these links to the right side of the tool for easy access and reference.
Integrate your school’s calendar. If you have a public Google calendar, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to integrate it into the platform’s calendar.
