Updates: Dashboards, Activities, and Talk About It

Posted by jglassman on

In an effort to meet the ever-changing needs of your classroom, we continuously update our content and technology to make your BrainPOP experience the best it can be. Following are our latest improvements.

NEW Teacher and Student Dashboards

Our new, easy-to-use Teacher and Student Dashboards are available on computers, tablets, and phones. 

The Teacher Dashboard makes accessing classes and assignments a cinch!  And now you can find all the projects you create with Make-a-Map, Make-a-Movie, Quiz Mixer, and Creative Coding in one place!

Because you asked… teachers are now able to give numerical scores to nearly everything students submit, such as custom movies, concept maps, and graphic organizers.  


The Student Dashboard provides quick access to all assignments and saved projects, making it easy to continue working on custom movies or concept maps started at an earlier time. A timeline shows a history of everything a student has worked on to date on BrainPOP.


Worksheets, Graphic Organizer, and Interactive Vocabulary

The newly designed and formatted activities, including worksheets, graphic organizers, and interactive vocabulary, are now available right on the topic page!

All three tablet-friendly activities provide exposure to key vocabulary, informal writing opportunities, and include updated content to take advantage of the new formats. Plus, students can now save and edit activities, and of course all are assignable. Note that the Vocabulary activity is also available on mobile phones.

No Flash? No problem! Graphic Organizer, Vocabulary, and Worksheet activities no longer require Flash on desktops or mobile devices.


Talk About It 

BrainPOP Jr.’s Talk About It (also tablet friendly) —a discussion prompt that encourages speaking, listening, and note-taking skills using a graphic organizer—now has saving and editing functionality. And, as always, teachers can assign Talk About It to students, and students can submit work to their teacher. 

NOTE: Previous versions of the Activity pages and Talk About It have been removed from existing assignments since they are no longer available. However, any previously completed or submitted student work is still accessible in both the student’s and teacher’s Dashboards. 

*Saving and editing functionality is not available in the Teacher and Family Plans.


Recognizing the importance of accessible learning experiences, all updated activities and the Student and Teacher Dashboards–on computers and mobile devices–are updated to meet the WCAG 2.0 AA standards.


We would love to hear what you think of all these exciting updates, and ideas for future renovations. Please share your feedback at
