Workspace Skills collects data to enable us to identify who have purchased the product and to be able to pass results back to Google Classroom for teachers to access scores in their markbook.
Our Interactive Tutorials are assigned in Google Classroom, using our Chrome Extension. Only those creating assignments (e.g. teachers) need access to the Chrome Extension.
Users access the tutorials, as an assignment in Google Classroom via a link.
Users then sign into Howdou using their Google Account. Howdou collects:
Google Account ID
First and Last Name
Google Classroom Details
As users complete the tutorial, Howdou tracks user input as they complete the tasks.
Upon completion - user scores are passed back to the Gradebook in Google Classroom.
If they have successfully earned a badge - user email address and badge details are passed to Badgr, who send the badge by email. No account is created with Badgr.
Users may choose, but are under no obligation, to click to create a Badgr account, which creates a digital backpack to store the badges.
Those assigning tutorials to users must have obtained all required (parental) approvals and consents to use the above services.
