We have added new tools to the SmartMusic Admin portal that allow Administrators and Teachers to manage their organization's platform by allocating and deallocating the seats their organization has purchased. Here's how each type of seat will be allocated or deallocated by platform Administrators and Teachers:

 

Jump to:

 

 

  

TEACH educator seats

 

  • A platform Administrator allocates a TEACH educator seat to a currently unconnected teacher on the Teachers page by clicking Invite New Teacher and picking TEACH under Access Type.
  • A platform Administrator allocates a TEACH educator seat to a currently connected teacher on the Teachers page by checking the box in their row and clicking Upgrade Teachers
  • A platform Administrator deallocates a TEACH educator seat from a currently TEACH premium teacher on the Teachers page by checking the box in their row and clicking Downgrade Teachers, or by archiving a teacher from the organization. See Archiving a teacher

 

 

TEACH student seats

 

  • A teacher allocates one or more TEACH student seats on the Manage Classes page by creating a premium class and sharing the class code with the students. The seat is not allocated until the student joins the premium class. Remember that if a student is already enrolled in another premium class in the organization, the student will not consume an additional seat. See Creating a class and Adding students to your class
  • A teacher deallocates one or more TEACH student seats on the Manage Classes page by either downgrading the class itself, or by removing a student from the class’ student list (assuming that student is not also enrolled in another premium class). See Removing a student from a class
  • A teacher deallocates all TEACH student seats within a class (assuming that students are not also enrolled in another premium class) by archiving the class using the Manage Classes page. See Archiving a class

 

 

PLAY Plus seats

 

An admin or teacher can allocate a PLAY Plus seat to a connected student.

 

1.  Log into https://admin.smartmusic.com and select Classes. The Manage Classes page appears. Click Students to view a list of your active students.

If you selected a student that has NOT been allocated a PLAY Plus seat, clicking Check All selects all students without a PLAY Plus seat, up to the number of PLAY Plus seats you have available. You can then click Allocate PLAY Plus to allocate seats to all selected students.

PLAY Plus seats can also be deallocated by removing a student from a class or archiving a class, assuming they are enrolled in no other class (free or premium).
