VizZle Player gives you the ability to let your students play VizZle activities independently without having to worry that they will start clicking in areas you don't intend for them to go (such as other students' folders). It's also much quicker to get your students into VizZle and playing.

What's the difference between the teacher logging in and the student logging in?
When you log in as a teacher, you'll be able to see all the same lessons and folders as you do in the Teach section in VizZle (with the exception of the Pix2Go lessons. You can view videos, play lessons, and view the lessons in your students' folder as usual. You'll also notice the Start Student Environment button when you're looking at a folder with playable lessons. This starts a Student Environment populated with the lessons from whichever folder you started the Environment (i.e. if you're viewing My Lessons and you click Start Student Environment, the student will be able to play the lessons in your My Lessons folder).
The student login mode is designed to be a quick start: the student types his or her login information, chooses a teacher (if necessary), and is immediately taken to the Student Environment, where he or she can start playing without navigating through folders.
What about data tracking?
Student performance data is tracked the same way in the VizZle Player as it is in VizZle: if the lesson is launched from that students' folders, you will be able to view the results in the students' Student Data folder in VizZle. Note that you cannot view performance data while you're in VizZle Player.
