Administration Tools

Your netTrekker administrator account provides you with tools you can use to manage user accounts and monitor school usage. Administrators have the ability to generate Registration Keys, lock and reset passwords, change the status of usernames, gauge the level of registration and usage in your school community as well as set certain school-wide options for the use of netTrekker.

Administration Tools

When you are logged in as an administrator, clicking on the Admin Tools link in the My Tools box on the right side of the netTrekker page provides you access to the following tools.

Your admin user is associated with a single school. You can access all of the schools in the district by moving your username to the desired school. To associate your username with another school, click Profile in the My Tools and select desired school in My School list.

District Technical Coordinators may determine that it is most efficient to create additional administrators in the district. (For example, the media specialist in each school or the technology coach for a group of schools.) You may set these additional administrator accounts up yourself by moving your login to the school for which you want to add the account and assigning administrator rights to the desired teacher or staff member. If you prefer, you may email your netTrekker Account Management contact directly with your requested Admin username list for your schools.

Administration Tools

When you are logged in as an administrator, clicking on the Admin Tools link in the My Tools box on the right side of the netTrekker page provides you access to the following tools:

  • Teacher Code - This feature allows you to view or set the teacher code for your school. The teacher code enables teachers to change their user role to Teacher for added functionality. For security reasons, we default every username's role to student. The Teacher role enables added functionality to the user. There are two methods for assigning a Teacher role to a username.

Administrator Changes the Role (in User Management)

Administrator assigns Teacher role to one or more usernames in the Admin Tools: User Management screen. No action is required by the user.

Administrator Assigns Teacher Code and User Changes Role (in Profile)

Administrator enters a teacher code for subscribing schools in the Admin Tools: Set Teacher Code screen. Administrator communicates teacher code and instructs users to update their username Profile. Users enter teacher code in their username Profile to change role to Teacher.

  • School & District Usage Reports - These reports are updated nightly and display usage information at the school and district level.
  • User Count Summary - This report provides information on the number of registered administrators, teachers, and students within your school.
  • User Management - This tool allows the Administrator to view the list of usernames and their roles, view and alter username's status and ability to login, view the most recent login, assign and revoke teacher rights to other users, assign and revoke admin rights to other users. It also gives you the ability to change or lock a username's password.
  • netTrekker Settings - This feature allows the Administrator to manage school settings that control different features used while searching in netTrekker.
