Students can create a custom avatar that helps to personalize their online experience.
- Students use earned stars to buy parts and accessories to customize their avatar’s appearance.
- Just like the Raz Rocket, teachers enable the Avatar Builder from the Roster or individual student pages.
NOTE: All students will receive 500 bonus stars when they first enter the new Avatar Builder. Their current robots will carry over and be replicated as closely as possible.
Seasonal AvatarsSeasonal avatar items are available to students for 60 days at a time, with new seasonal items presented every quarter. Students keep purchased seasonal items beyond the season, but those not purchased disappear from availability.
Teacher TipsYou can turn on/off student access to the Raz Rocket or Avatar Builder by customizing the student Incentives settings in your Roster or on individual student pages.
