Explaining the function of the Tag button



Tagging is a simple and effective way to expand your audience by cross-publishing relevant content to other websites across the iHigh network, similar to what can be done with other social sites such as Facebook or Flickr. You can currently tag articles, broadcasts and video clips so that they will appear on another school's website as well as your own.

This has helped to draw more traffic to individual sites as users from other schools looking for Live Streamed games on their school iHigh.com site or on Google can be led to the game broadcasts on the host school sites.

We currently have two methods of tagging: tagging by School Name (AJAX tagging), and tagging by School ID.

Tagging by School Name (AJAX tagging)



iHigh's newest method of tagging is termed AJAX Tagging, where users will type in the name of the school and select it from a list to tag it. This method is the most simple. Since multiple schools in the iHigh network may have the same name (Washington, for example), you should be careful to note the correct city and state. After tagging, it is important to check to see if you have tagged the correct school. If not, you should Untag it and use the "Tagging by iHigh School ID" method.
  1. Find a broadcast, article or video clip on your site that would be relevant on another school's website
  2. Type that school's Name into the Tag entry field
  3. Check to make sure you tagged the correct school


Find a broadcast, article or video clip on your site that would be relevant on another school's website



First, you must be logged in to your iHigh account to add a Tag. For this example, we'll tag an upcoming live broadcast of a football game.



Note: Only relevant content should be tagged on another school site. While most schools are using the Tagging feature responsibly, a few have tried to take advantage of the feature by tagging irrelevant content in an effort to increase their site's traffic. If a school is found to be guilty of this, their tagging priviliges can be taken away. Conversely, any school having problems with another school continuing to tag them on irrelevant content can request that their school be untaggable by others. Please contact the iHigh technical team if you are expperiencing problems as a result of the tagging feature.

Enter the School Name in the Tag entry field



On your school's home page, click on the live broadcast link of the game we want to tag.



Just below the video player, you will see the "Tag School" button.



Click the "Tag School" button, and a School Name field will appear.



When you being typing the School name in the field, a drop down list of names will appear. Select the school you want to tag - noting the correct city and state.



The school's ID number will then appear. Now just click Submit.



You will see that the second school, in addition to your own, is now tagged on the broadcast.



The broadcast will now appear in the Live Broadcast section of the other school, as well as your own.



Check to make sure you tagged the correct school



Since multiple schools in the iHigh network may have the same name (Washington, for example), it is important to check to see if you have tagged the correct school. If not, you should Untag it and use the "Tagging by iHigh School ID" method.

Tagging by iHigh School ID



This method is the most accurate, removing the risk of using a different school with a similar name.
  1. Find a broadcast, article or video clip on your site that would be relevant on another school's website
  2. Locate the other school's iHigh School ID number
  3. Enter the School ID number in the Tag entry field
  4. Tagging other items

Locate the other school's iHigh School ID number



Click on the "FIND A SCHOOL" link in your site's Upper Links bar.



The default setting for the search engine is for your school's state. If needed, you can expand the search to include other states. In the "Name" search field, enter the name of the school you want to tag.



Then click on the "Go" button.



The results of the search will be displayed. Click on the school you want to tag.



Once the other school's website comes up, scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for the "Visits to XYZ High School" text.



Hover the mouse cursor on the "Visits to XYZ High School" text, and you will see the School ID pop up. This is the number we will need to tag the live broadcast.



Enter the School ID number in the Tag entry field



Back on your school's home page, click on the live broadcast link of the game we want to tag.



Just below the video player, you will see the "Tag School" button.



Click the "Tag School" button, and a School Name field will appear.



Now enter the School ID in the field and click Submit.



You will see that the second school, in addition to your own, is now tagged on the broadcast.



The broadcast will now appear in the Live Broadcast section of the other school, as well as your own.



Tagging other items



You will also notice the "Tag School" button on your Articles and Video Clips.





Tagging on these items works in exactly the same way as a broadcast.
