Usually, some of the fields are empty if you do not use teachr as a learning management system. Therefore you should avoid these variables:

  • birthday
  • department
  • personnel number

By default, these numbers are not set when you create a teachr account. This can lead to complaints from your users, as you may set variables that do not display properly.

To insert media files, paragraphs, headings, lists or tables you can find this option by expanding the editor with the menu button [...].
