Supporting home learning
Sharing resources with students and supporting their music-making between lessons via Yumu is easy. Teachers who are less familiar with the platform need only follow three steps to get started too (assuming that their school has registered for a Charanga trial or subscription):
- Set up a Student Group for a class. For guidance, watch the video below.
- First explore our Music At Home Packages – specially curated resources for students to use at home.
- Click the +Yumu button at the top of the page and select ‘Set as Assignment’ if you wish to monitor students’ progress or set due dates; otherwise select ‘For independent learning’.
