We’ve added support for teams as well as many exciting teams-related features.

Create a team to collaborate with colleagues

You can now create a team to work together with your colleagues. Just create a team either when registering or as an existing user, and then invite your colleagues to join via email. You can also nominate administrators to help manage your team.

After joining your team, instructors will be able to create their workspaces inside your team. This gives your instructors and the participants in their workspaces a common environment to work in.

Currently teams offer the benefits of consolidated subscription management and LMS integration, which you can read more about below. Teams will also be the basis for more collaboration features in future updates.

Manage subscription for your entire team

One of the main benefits of creating a team is that all of the instructors in your team gain access to the team’s subscription. You only need to purchase the subscription once as the team admin, and all your instructors will automatically have access to Emended.

The subscription can be tailored to fit your needs by selecting the team size and subscription plan. Subscriptions come in two flavors - Emended STANDARD and Emended PREMIUM, with the latter including additional features. You can also modify the subscription plan and subscription period at any time.

All teams start with a free 30-day trial with full features and up to a hundred instructors.

Integrate to your LMS using LTI

As many organizations use a Learning Management System (LMS) in addition to Emended, we now allow single-click transition from your LMS to Emended.

The integration between your LMS and Emended follows a standard called Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI), which is supported by most common LMS. This means you can set up the integration with minimal effort.

Both teachers and students can log in to Emended via the integration. Your teachers also get added to your team in Emended as an instructor, so you don’t even have to send invitations.

LTI integration requires a Emended PREMIUM subscription and can also be used during the free trial.

See our LTI guide for more information on how to take LTI into use.
