Gooru uses open educational resources (OER), which can be taken down by their owners without our knowledge. This is likely what happened to the resource you were using. You should still be able to view all of the other content for the topic you were studying or teaching by searching for the topic in the Gooru catalog.
When a student changes classes, moves, or otherwise needs to be removed from your roster, you can manage this through Class Settings.
- Click on the wheel icon to access the Class Settings and the roster for the class.
2. Click on the toggle to the right of the student’s name (under “Active”) to change it from “Yes” to “No”. Once you have inactivated a student, their name will turn gray and they will be removed from your data reports.
3. You can also click on the trash icon to delete a student completely. We advise against this unless you are absolutely positive the student has left your district completely and will not return. The deletion is permanent and it wipes the student’s progress from our system.

We recommend that you start by reflecting with your team on the needs and goals of your district/school. Consider your technology support and curriculum/professional development needs as you plan.

Nope! Gooru can be used in a broad range of classroom contexts, including in-person and virtual learning. Teachers have been able to incorporate Gooru into their classrooms by using one computer and rotating students through collections. Additionally, classrooms with sets of 3-5 computers have implemented station models of having students rotate to computers. Finally, classrooms with 1:1 capabilities with laptops or tablets have been able to incorporate Gooru into a blended model of learning.
