Changes to Teacher Accounts in 2022
Preceden previously offered special teacher accounts that could be configured to allow their students to create timelines of their own. Due to low adoption of these accounts and a huge amount of complexity they add to the codebase, we made the difficult decision to stop offering these type of student accounts.
When do the changes take effect?
We announced the changes in June 2021 with a prominent banner displayed on all teacher accounts as well as for any students logged into those accounts.
On January 4, 2022 we removed the student sub-accounts.
Who does this impact?
For teachers: If you originally signed up and specified that you were using Preceden for Teaching, then your account will be impacted. Your dashboard would have displayed "Teacher Dashboard" if this is the case:
For students: If you were using Preceden by signing into your teacher's account using a Student Access Password then you won't be able to log in that way anymore or access the timelines that you previously created on your teacher's account.
What happens to student accounts and timelines?
Timelines created by students while logged into their teacher account are no longer accessible in Preceden as of January 4, 2022.
Can I still get access to the student timelines?
For teachers: for a period of time we will still provide CSV exports of student timelines if the teacher requests them. Email us at [email protected] if you're interested.
For students: ask your teacher to email us to request a CSV export of your timeline.
These CSV exports can be imported back into Preceden using our CSV import tool.
What about teacher timelines?
The timelines the teacher created (ie the ones listed under "Your Timelines" on your dashboard) will not be impacted.
Can my students continue using Preceden?
If students want to continue using Preceden, they should sign up for their own Preceden account.
