This new tool allows you to add comments, hyperlinks, examples and videos to our pre-created Learn screens! Our beta Learn Screen Notes is an easy way for you to further customize your course and better connect with your students virtually. Whether you are encouraging students through helpful tips and reminders or directing them to supplemental resources, adding Learn Screen Notes can help increase student engagement with the course content presented in Hawkes.

To use the tool, open your online Grade Book and navigate to Assignments -> Curriculum:
Select a section to launch the curriculum assigned to it. Once that’s open, select the lesson to which you wish to add Learn Screen Notes:
From here, select the “Edit Learn Notes” button to launch the note editor:
This tool will allow you to navigate through each of the available Learn Notes and add your own custom comments to the page. Please note that you will need to save progress between each page to ensure your updates show up on the student side.
Some notable features include the following:
- embedding videos from YouTube,
- adding hyperlinks to redirect students to other resource pages,
- adding special characters, and
- adding images.
When students log in and access the Learn portion of a lesson, your custom notes will appear in the bottom area of the page. Additionally, students can toggle the page to view just the custom Learn Screen note or just the Hawkes-created Learn content.
