Private games for your groups

Do you have groups with students that you want to be able to play your games? Now you can give them exclusive access to your own games. There is a new authorization level on user generated games called My groups which allows all students in your groups to play that game.The access level is set on the page where you create and edit your game:

access user gamesThere are now four levels of authorization for your games:

Everyone

The game will be publicly available for all students and anonymous visitors on Helpfulgames. We are grateful for every game that you make public, but we are very nursing about the quality of our game and please make sure it follows our rules for public games. Everyone can access the game through the usual public subject pages, but your students and your group’ students may also see it on the member page Games by teachers.

My groups

Create a group and invite another teacher. When the teacher adds a student in your group, the student will gain access to all of your game that has this access level. All your students have also access to the game, regardless of their status in your groups. Your students and your group’ students can access the game through the usual public subject pages, but also on the member page Games by teachers. Anonymous visitors or not connected users have no access to play the game.

My students

Only your students that you are responsible for have access to the game. Students that you are connected to through groups have no access to the game. Your own students can access the game through the usual public subject pages, but also on the member page Games by teachers.

No one

Only you have access to play the game. This level is often used during game design.
