New Release: Inline feedback and commenting in realsmart

Our latest update to the realsmart feedback system makes it even easier to provide quality feedback on evidence of learning.

We have responded to user feedback that the old pop up comment window in realsmart made it difficult to see what you were critiquing. Our new inline comment editor allows you to comment and give feedback on realsmart items without leaving the page.

This also improves the user experience on mobile devices like iPads where it was difficult to scroll around the page.

This development will be available to all users very soon…


Embedding realsmart items

Your realsmart items can be shared in more ways than just the one.

You can actually embed them as you would with any other web content. Items be put inside WordPress posts, emails, or even inside of other realsmart items. This is particularly useful if you want to use an item as evidence within another realsmart item.

What if students forget their passwords?


Q: How much learning time is wasted finding passwords?

A: None!

ANY teacher can find out the usernames of their students and reset their passwords quickly and easily in realsmart.

  • When you're in realsmart, open up the desired unit that you are working on and select the correct group / class that you're working with (use the 'shares' tab at the top of the page for this).


    Then select the 'passwords' tab – again this is at the top of the page. This will then display all of the usernames for that particular group, and give you the option of resetting passwords should this be necessary.

*This negates the need for loads of staff having admin rights. We normally advise against there being more than 2 administrators for realsmart. This is because any changes in the admin area can seriously impact on mentor / learner data and work, and we need to be able to trace accountability – something we can't do if there are 20 different admin users.
