Quick start guide for TES Pro

Quick start guide for TES Pro

You can get into your TES Pro account from anywhere on the TES Connect site, just by clicking on the TES Pro tab in the top right corner of the screen.

Getting started on it is then easy. Here are some simple steps.

Store your Resources


1

Start by uploading the resources you want into your private TES Pro storage. Just click on the 'Upload files" button, or drag the file you want over that button.

You can set up folders within your 'My Storage" panel to help keep track of specific resources, and you can load new resources straight into those folders.

(There’s more information about your storage here , and a video here .)

Organise your resources in binders


1

Binders are a great way to organise your resources for particular classes or topics. Setting them up is simple: click on 'Create New Binder", give your new binder a name, then drag files into it from the 'My Storage" panel.

2

Clicking on the binder icon allows you to change the image on it – you can pick from a selection of pictures or upload your own.

3

You can also add sections to your binder, which allow you to divide up your teaching material however you like.

Plan using the calendar


1

Start by customizing the calendar to when you teach. You can adjust your term dates in 'settings", and add new terms there as well.

2

Then add a lesson or other activity by clicking on "add event". You can make this event recur on particular days, or weekly, or fortnightly, or however often it happens.

3

Finally, drag one of your binders into an event in your calendar - there, you’ve now connected the resources you need directly to a series of lessons.
