Q:As a Domain Administrator, how do I get started with the Applications Tab?
A:The Applications Tab is where Domain Administrators can enable and manage domain-wide features and other third-party tools.
To accessApplications, log in with your Admin account and click on theApplications Tab. There you will see three sub-tabs:
Features are domain-wide tools that are native to PowerSchool Learning. TheApplications > Featurestab lets you configure these tools for your domain. Most of the settings for these tools can be configured for your whole domain or per sub-organization.
Content Sharingand theLibrarylet administrators and teachers easily share class content. Once the library isEnabled, click onSettings, and select who can Contribute (share resources into the library) and who can Consume (use resources from the library).
The ePortfolio gives students a personal space to store work they want to take with them from class to class and year to year. Click on Settings to set visibility permissions for ePortfolios. If you want to let someone manage your domain’s ePortfolio template, youcan do that by giving them a special permission under the Accounts tab.
If you have any questions about how best to use these tools at your school, please contact your School Advisor.
If your school is using any of the followingPartner Tools, and you would like to enable them to be used in PowerSchool Learning, you can do so by selecting them under theApplications Tab(Note: Your School Advisor is your best resource for helping with enabling and configuring these tools. For important considerations and best practices, please reach out to your School Advisor.)
LTI allows you to integrate PowerSchool Learning with other online learning tools that are also using the LTI standard. Take a look at our Knowledgebase articles onhow to add an LTI Tooland seeexamples of LTI Tools.
The level of integration varies depending on the specific tool. If you’re already using any of those example LTI tools outside of PowerSchool Learning, you might as well give LTI integration a shot!
As always, if you have any questions, please be sure to reach out to your School Advisor.
