MyTalk Workspace our web based board building tool comes in two versions:
1. Workspace Family
2. Workspace Pro (managing multiple students, clients, patients on a single account)
This page describes Workspace Family (Single Home board version).
- With Workspace Family, a family or other end-user supporter has control of User Name & Password. A School, SLP, PT, OT and other support team member would be given access by sharing the User Name and password.
- This version is also the version that is provided to Support Professionals for their personal use to create evaluation boards and to demonstrate MyTalk. It is provided to them at no cost as a way to spread the work about MyTalk. Once an end-user engages (pushes the buttons) the professional encourages end-user family, school etc. to purchase Mobile and trial Workspace. They can easily transfer all of the content they have built to the new end-user's user name.
Setup managed either by Family lead or Support Professional
Share Family's MyTalk User Name and Password with professional and other family members who will build boards
Decide who has lead for email address, password violations, and sync management. The team approach is great, but decide who has the lead role managing content and sync's. Authoring updates done in Mobile on separate iPads can create conflicts. Some simple rules can prevent problems.
Who would purchase Workspace, the Family (Single Home board) Account?
Any family that loves the mobile authoring capability of MyTalk Mobile, but also wants the convenience of web based board building. My son won't give up his iPhone during the day and I don't want to wait until 10pm to edit or create boards. Many parents use the quiet time when kids are at school to build communication boards, then quickly sync when the student comes home. Many end user families have Workspace Family accounts. This single end user family wants management and oversight of their account.
SLP, PT, OT, SPED Teacher or other professionals receive Workspace, the Family version, at no cost to demonstrate to potential end users when they deem it to be a potential solution. The family version that is provided to professionals at no cost is provided to them individually and goes with them if they change employment. If, by virtue of the free account provided to the individual, their employer decides to acquire MyTalk accounts, those account belong to the institution and stay with the institution if an employee leaves. We provide Workspace Family to individual support professionals in exchange for the 28 minutes needed to watch our tutorial videos and become experts and MyTalk trainers. We hope they will conduct a needs analysis with feature matching as part of their MyTalk recommendation.
