A Quick Start to Edify as a Teacher

We will cover all the steps you need to get started with edify. This page will cover the basics of creating an account, logging in, and installing the edify launcher and Lesson Creator for teachers. For guides on creating, broadcasting, or joining a lesson, please go to our Getting Started page.

How do I navigate my lesson while presenting?

Changing scenes

Any scenes you have created will be displayed in the "Scenes" tab in the "Lectern" panel. To navigate, either select a scene directly by pressing on the white box, or browse sequentially by pressing "Next scene" at the bottom of the tab.

The Presenter mode can be accessed through the "Tools" tab. Toggle on, and use the left and right buttons on your controller to transition through the scenes.

For info on the "Lectern" panel, check out this guide.

                       

Broadcast Cameras

The "Broadcast" panel on the edify toolkit in the Lesson Creator allows you to access and position the camera(s) to give students a different view of your Lesson. You can also select assets from within the scene such as 3D models and broadcast them directly during your teaching. Please​ see the Broadcast Suite for more information.​

Conference View

There are two parts to using Teams or Zoom within edify.

  1. Broadcasting: Select the "Broadcast" tab on the "Lectern" panel to start sharing your Lesson via the "Start broadcasting" button. Double check that edify Camera is saved as an output within Teams or Zoom settings. More detailed information can found in the Connecting / Broadcasting guide.
  2. View Teams or Zoom within the edify environment: Select "Conferencing" and choose your preferred video conferencing software. The Teams or Zoom call will now appear on the board. Remember that most video conferencing software provides multiple windows and you can navigate between these using the arrows at the bottom of the screen. Further information can be found in the edify Board guide.
