The Frog Interface

The user interface provides easy access to the many features and applications of your Frog VLE. The Interface provides different user options whether being viewed by a teacher, student, administrator or parent. This guide is based upon a teacher login and so may include tools and features not available to other users.
This section will give a brief overview of the Frog VLE interface.

Frog Bar

The Frog Bar is a fixed area at the top of the VLE. This links to the various user tools and menus within the Frog VLE. The Frog Bar is always displayed.
Working from left to right, the Frog Bar consists of the following elements:
