When creating an activity: Copy content between the Student Template and the Multimedia Example

Sometimes teachers want to copy their hard work from a student template over to the multimedia example for students to see. As a work around I usually put my instructions on page 1 of the student template.

However... Sometimes teachers accidentally create a template under the multimedia example, and then realize it should be in the student template instead.

Could you develop an easy way to copy the content to the other section of the activity?

  • Yes please help us with this feature.  I do this at least once a month...it's so frustrating when you spend hours making an activity and then make a mistake.  Then you have to recreate the whole activity because you've put it in the multimedia area rather than student response.

  • I'm on the same lame boat!

    Made this interactive work in the Instructions' template accidentally, with each label having a "voice over" so that my special needs students can work and still be independent learners. Now, I've to go back to Student template and put in those many hours again!!! 

    Incredible Seesaw, this feature should've been fixed by now.

    Snip tool just brings the images over not the recordings. Access snipping on Windows platform by pressing Ctrl + Win logo + S.

  • This would be the most important feature update to help allow all teachers, even those who are new to using Seesaw, to have a way to create quality content without frustration. For new teachers this is the biggest problem my school community has encountered, they have created something in one area and were not able to move it to the other area. 

    Many teachers spend a lot of time using the Seesaw tools to create the activity pages for the class and that is hours of work that can be saved if the template and examples have the ability to be copied.

  • Oh me too!  I made the same mistake (created a template in the example section) and now there is no way to copy it across to student template.  This is clearly an issue for many people and would be a wonderful addition to Seesaw.

  • 1000% agree.  I just wasted so much time now I have to go back and create it again.

  • Yes please! I spend so much time making a template, only to then have to screenshot the whole template to make my example.

  • Please tell us when something is going to be done about this problem. In these days of virtual teaching and learning, which many of us are still going through, the last thing we need is to have to create an activity twice because we put it in the example instead of in the student template. A sign of a tired teacher at the end of a long week that we make these mistakes but I shouldn't have to spend another hour recreating it!
