Frequently asked questions

Does the Launchpad display for teachers who do not have EdgeEX sections?
No. The Launchpad displays only for teachers associated with at least one EdgeEX section as either a primary or additional teacher.

Additionally, anyone who has the EdgeEX View All Sections in Launchpad permission will be able to see all sections in the school or district on the Launchpad. (This permission is off for teachers by default.)

How do I know if I have an EdgeEX section assigned to me?

On the Manage Courses page, filter by Teacher (your name) and Series (EdgeEX) to see if you are listed as the teacher for an EdgeEX section. If you are not listed and you should be, contact your administrator and ask to be added.

Overview

The Educator Launchpad displays on the Homepage when educators log in to Imagine Edgenuity. It provides an at-a-glance view of alerts and allows you to take action when students need assessments unlocked, are are out of retakes, or have work that needs to be graded. EdgeEX courses do not display on the Dashboard; they display here instead.

For teachers, the Educator Launchpad only displays enrollments in sections where the user is assigned as a primary or additional teacher. The permission EdgeEX View All Sections in Launchpad allows a user to view all enrollments in all EdgeEX sections, regardless of whether the user is assigned as a teacher to that section. This permission is on by default for administrators and off by default for teachers.

To return to the Educator Launchpad from any other page, click the Imagine Edgenuity icon in the top-left corner of the screen.
