Introduction

Welcome to Moomin Language School, the digital language learning service which helps young children learn foreign languages! This page will help you get started with administering the Moomin Language School service within your organization.

Moomin Language School consists of two main parts: the learning application and the playful lessons. Your students get individual daily practice with the learning application, and you can find the lesson plans and materials for organizing weekly playful lessons in our online tools (Webtool). There you can also manage your student groups and view your students' progress reports from the application. If you want, you can also give parents access to their child's progress report.

Managing Your Organization

As an organization admin you have access to certain functions that are not available to users within your organization with teacher level privileges. Unlike users with teacher accounts, you can:

  • Create, edit and delete sub-organizations under your organization
  • Add teachers to sub-organizations
  • Export statistical data on how Moomin Language School is being used within your organization.

Organization Structure

In our management system (Webtool), your organization can form a tree-like structure, which is illustrated in an example organization image below. The structure controls the visibility within the organization, i.e. users within the organization can only view information on users with their branch of the organization. The root of your organization has visibility to the whole organization.

  • Under the main organization, you can have an unlimited number or sub-organizations. You can also have an unlimited number of sub-organizations under any sub-organization. A sub-organization could, for example, be a certain region/country if you had a large organization that spans over many countries.
  • At the end of each sub-organization branch you'll have your actual kindergartens/schools/learning centers.
  • Within a kindergarten/school/learning center you'll have your teachers, students and groups.
    • Teachers (i.e. users with a teacher account) only have the visibility, and control, within their own kindergarten/school/learning center. Teachers can create, edit and delete student accounts and groups.
    • Students are organized into groups. Each student/child has their own individual profile in the service.
