Lightspeed FAQs

  • Can co-teachers see the class within LightSpeed as well as the teacher of record?
    • No. Only one teacher at a time can "observe and control" a class.
  • Can you set a custom schedule within LightSpeed to automate the process?
    • Yes. A custom schedule can be set within the Class Settings option. There are certain restrictions to scheduling, so sometimes an Adhoc is the best option.
  • Can a non-teacher of record monitor a class? (Coach, Tutor, Long Term Sub)
    • Yes. If they have a NCPS email address, they can sign in and create a custom class.
  • What do I do if my Lightspeed isn't working?
    • First, clear your cache, cookies, and history from your Chrome Browser. Then, submit an iiQ work ticket and email Caroline Aycock and Lindsay Jones. Sometimes, the DTL team will work with technology to help resolve the issue and a work ticket should be submitted ASAP.

Lightspeed Updated Presentation (Fall 2023)

October 5-7, 2023Ten NCPS Media Specialists, and an NCPS Digital Teaching and Learning Coach, attended this year's North Carolina School Library Media Association Conference in Winston-Salem, NC. These educators spent three days attending professional development sessions, author meet and greets, and keynotes from storytellers and school library leaders. NCPS Media Specialists serve a distinct and unique role in the education of all students as they are instructional leaders and literacy advocates, and work to collaborate with teachers on using library and digital resources to bring innovation and engagement to the classroom.
