The tools in the online Studio allow them to gain a deeper understanding of their writing process with built-in Insights, to make sure their voices are being represented fairly. Students can work closely with myself and their classmates on writing techniques in an intuitive and user-friendly environment that has raised the bar for my kids. Celtx helps make their projects happen – all the way from pre-production through production.”

How is Celtx for Education designed for learning spaces?

What is a ‘shared studio?’

Celtx for Education is a collaborative cloud-based studio environment where educators can assign projects, supervise progress, and guide students through the writing, planning, and management aspects of media production. In this collaborative workspace, educators and students can interact on production documents and use the multi-format script editors to write, edit, and comment on scripts in real-time.

Can I track my students’ progress?

Yes. Celtx for Education gives educators oversight of the progress of the individual students and project groups. The script insights features enable you to set writing goals, track writing progress towards that goal, view daily writing habits, and visually analyze the content of a student’s script to identify areas for improvement. You can also use ‘become the student’ to log in to a student’s account to check the status, review their script insights, or troubleshoot.

Can I notify my students when assigning projects and providing feedback?

Yes. Whenever you assign a student to a project, Celtx will automatically email them an invitation. Additionally, you can use the comment feature to provide feedback on a student’s scriptwriting and assign the feedback using @mentions to one or more students. Celtx will automatically send an email notification enabling the student to link directly to your comment.

Is there support for bulk operations (e.g., mass invites, mass sharing, etc.)

Yes. If you already have a list of student names and email addresses, you can invite them to the studio all at once using the bulk onboarding feature. Or, for a more personalized approach, you can also add students individually, including a personalized message.

Does Celtx offer built-in support resources for students new to the software?

Yes. ​​Students can access helpful articles and in-depth video tutorials from within the Celtx for Education studio to learn at their own pace and supplement your course curriculum.
