The New TeacherMade Help Center
One significant change we made this summer was revamping our Help Center!

The Help Center is also where you can find our premade Digital Activities, Tip Sheets, Frequently Asked Questions, Teacher Trainings, and advice from Teachers for Teachers in the new Mentor Center!

In TeacherMade 101 you will learn how to use all of the different tools to mark up your PDFs and make them interactive. TeacherMade 102 focuses on how to setup assignments, which delivery modes are best suited for your objectives, how to give real-time feedback, and each of the grading tools.
