Firefly 6

Firefly Training Class

Practice task setting, marking and annotating by using Firefly’s built in group of fictional students.

You can try setting tasks to the students in the Firefly training class without affecting anyone else in your school. The practice tasks can be as simple or complex as you like. In addition, the students in the Firefly training class will automatically respond to the task you set them when you send your first comment to the class. You can practice annotating their submitted work, excusing them or sending documents, audio and comments. Any marks and feedback that you give the members of this class will appear in the markbook too.
