This document informs teachers how they can use the toggles in their Settings tab to customize their Learning Tree community.
In a Learning Tree community, navigate to the Settings tab.
Within the Settings tab, you will see the tabs and features you can toggle on or off in your community.
NOTE: The default tabs and features visible for a newly created community appear as in the image above. Meetings, Self Goals, Documents, Members, Progress, and Report card are toggled on, and Sequential Learning is toggled off, disabling the feature.
IMPORTANT: Making any customizations within the Settings tab will apply to only the community in which you are working. Customizations will not be applied to other communities in which you are a member.
If you are not planning on doing any live instruction, or you intend to use another meeting software besides the default Zoom integration to meet with students, you may want to consider disabling the Meetings option by clicking the toggle.
Disabling Meetings will remove this option and icon from both the teacher and student community tabs.
IMPORTANT: Disabling Meetings will not remove the Meetings option from the Main Menu if it is visible.

Goals is a tab visible in the student view only. Goals allow students to set and achieve course objectives for a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Allowing Goals to be visible to secondary students may be appropriate.
Disabling the feature, thereby removing this option and icon from the students’ community tabs, may be fitting for younger learners.
