Starting today, Teacher Tools subscribers can use passwords to protect their rooms. The password is required to read or participate in the room, offering a great new option for keeping rooms private!
- Room passwords can be used even when participants don't have TodaysMeet accounts, including primary school students.
- Room passwords can also be used along with Logged-in or My School, and Pause.
- Each room can have its own unique password, and passwords can be added, changed, or removed at any time.
- Adding or changing a room password will remove everyone from the room, until they enter the new password.
- Room passwords can also be applied to transcripts you've made public with Teacher Tools.
Here's how it works:
- First, you add a password to your room, either when you create it or later.
- You share the link to the room.
- You also share the room password—maybe waiting until the activity starts.
- When participants open the link to the room, they are prompted to enter the password.
- Once they do, they participate in the room normally.
Room passwords are a very powerful tool for controlling a room. Like Pausing a room, they can be used to stop participation, but unlike Pause they also prevent students from even reading the transcript of a room.
Because they can be changed at any time, even if a participant chooses to share the password, the room can still be secured.
