Where do I start?

You'll want to add some Units to your 'My Units' list. Do this either by Finding and adding some existing units, or create your own.

The existing units can be either

Edekit Units which are complete and ready to use as they are, they have been pre-filled with content, resources, and assessments

Edekit Template Units which have been pre-filled with some basic details

Members Units which have been Shared by other members of Edekit in any subscription

You can generate a Scope & Sequence by going to the Scope & Sequence tab. Select the units you want to use, or you can create units from within here by selecting Misc Units -> Create a New Unit. This is useful if you want to do a Scope and Sequence but haven't yet set up all your units.

To Find and Add a Unit to your My Units list

Click Select the search criteria you want to use and click Click on the unit you want to use. You can the Unit. This makes a copy of the unit and adds it to your My Units list. This is now your Unit and you can make modify it as you wish.

Create a Unit

Click Select the KLA, Title, Subject, School Year etc you want to create the unit for.
Type your unit details into the ‘Content’ area, or copy and paste text in from another document.

Roles

All members are setup with one or more Roles. Only School Coorindators can make Role changes, and they do them using the 'Member Admin tab'. For each Member, they are given one or more Roles in a subscription, and for each of their Roles they are assigend one or more KLAs. The member can only access the Roles and KLAs they have been assigned to.

Teachers All members are setup as a Teacher of a KLA(s). Teachers can only access the KLA(s) they have been assigned to in their Subscription.

KLA Coordinators Can access all members of their KLA + Subscription. They can do the same actions on the Members Units as Teachers can.

School Coordinators Can access all KLAs and Members of their Subscription. They can do the same actions on the Members Units as Teachers can.

Printing

Generally, change your printer settings to print the units out in Landscape mode - they look better this way. Except the Maths units which are better printed in Portrait mode.
