Create online classrooms

In just a few clicks, set up a classroom for each class you teach. Give your classroom a name and select a date range, and you're on your way to creating a syllabus of quality resources for your students.

Build a syllabus using our resources

Quickly choose resources to drop into your classroom syllabus. Set your own date ranges, drag and drop resources to reorder, and add your own custom content. Don't forget to publish so your students can see all their assignments!

Monitor student progress

Monitor student progress and scores on assigned resources in your classrooms. Assign Written Assessments and Reading Q&As and grade them from within the teacher portal.

Students log in to Econ Lowdown with a system-generated student code and password. You can also opt to have your students log in "with Google." Students first log in with their Google account and are then prompted to join your classroom by entering a code.
Discussion board questions are included in some courses, thus giving you and your students the opportunity to discuss key economic concepts in the virtual classroom. You may also add your own questions to the discussion board.
Similar to classroom response systems, you may virtually send questions to your students to check comprehension, gain attention and generate discussion. Summaries of the student responses can be shown in real time to both you and your students.
