In addition to offering lesson plan sharing and teacher-administrator communication, the site still will operate a professional community for educators. Through that community, educators can:
- Create “affinity circles” for users in individual schools, districts, or in wider communities.
- Read and post education-related blogs.
- Maintain calendars for class, school, district, and/or professional groups.
- Post and search instructional videos and other teaching resources.
- Create and manage online courses and instructional modules.
- Have access to online group facilitation.
TeachQuest announced the settlement on Twitter, while also promoting new website features. For instance, users can log onto TeachQuest with their Facebook accounts.
Facebook did not immediately return an eSchool News reporter’s request for comment.
