Stay Organised With Favourites

Do you have favourites in your class?

Whilst we shouldn’t have favourite students, we can certainly have Focus on Sound favourites. This recently added feature (Pro version only) is a game-changer for teachers. It allows you to “favourite” an item within Focus on Sound for quick retrieval later. A simple concept but a powerful and timesaving one.

Why favourites?

There is a huge amount of content in Focus on Sound, and some areas will be more relevant to you than others. Selecting your favourite content, tests and lessons means that you can quickly find it later. All favourites are stored in the “My School” section and will help you navigate to the content you use regularly. 

How to select favourites

Selecting favourites is simple. There is a star to the right of the main title for each piece of content, lesson or test. Clicking on this star will automatically add it to our favourites menus in “My School”. And if you decide that you no longer want something in your favourites menu then just deselect the star. 

Stay Organised

Use favourites to stay organised and to make sure you get the best out of Focus on Sound Pro. Your students will benefit from you knowing the content that will best support their learning.
