The courses are designed to allow each staff member to complete the training at
their own pace. The courses contains lessons that address specific topics.
Teachers who are already experienced and knowledgeable in certain areas can move
through the lessons in any order – quickly accessing the exact information they
need the most.
An important system concept to understand is that each user's login is
completely secure and separate from other users. Each individual or member of a
group (described below) that is registered receives their own unique login and
password and the information they enter is stored for them and can only be
retrieved by them.
Each online course on the site employs the concept of lessons. Each lesson has a
“Home Page” that serves as the central point of information for that lesson. It
is from the lesson “Home Page” that you can select the video to watch, access
links to course handouts, resources, and answer reflections questions for your
use later. The reflection questions are intended to allow you to relate your own
personal observations and experiences as they relate to the subject matter of
the video. The lesson specific reflections can be retrieved, viewed and printed
at any time.
When you have completed the course, there will be an online quiz that will ask
questions about the course material. This quiz can only be taken after the
course is complete.
Upon completion of the quiz, the course is complete. You will be issued a Course
The quiz results, reflections questions, and completion certificate can each be
retrieved, viewed, and printed. They can also be emailed as an attachment to any
email address you enter into the system.
A “Course Completion Packet” can also be generated that contains all of the
course materials and certificate of completion in one document
Upon completing the registration process, you will be supplied with an
instruction sheet that explains how to login and use the system.
After a successful login, you will be presented with a page called “My Home
Page”. This will be your central point of information while logged in. On this
page you can select course and lessons you want to take, change your login
information, edit your contact information, retrieve your invoice, as well as
several other operations. The structure of the courses is described in the
IMPORTANT: Not every course has all of the features described above.
You may register as an individual or a group. An individual registration gives
you all the features descrbied above. A group registration varies as described
If you are registering a group of people, you will be registered as the Group
Administrator. You will then designate the size of the group you are
registering. The group size is the only information you need to supply about the
group during registration. You do not need to enter group members’ names or any
other information about them. They will enter their own information the first
time they login.
A PDF document (one page per group member) will be generated that contains
temporary usernames and passwords along with login instructions for each member
of the group. The Group Administrator will then distribute the instruction
sheets to the individual group members. This document will be emailed to you
during the registration process and you will also have the option to print and
view it. It can also be retrieved at any time when you are logged into your
Group Admin account.
As the Group Administrator, you will have access to an additional screen that is
not available to other types of users. This screen will summarize the progress
of the other members of the group. A color coded grid is available to
graphically and quickly identify the progress of each of the members of your
group. When the group member has completed the course, their completion date as
well as their final course quiz score is shown.
An important concept for the Group Administrator is that they can be an
administrator of many groups. For example, a principal of a school may wish to
sign up the math department faculty as one group and the science department
faculty as another group. When the Group Administrator is on their
administration page, they simply select the desired group from a drop down list
and the status of that group is displayed.
The Group Administrator is also a regular member of the group. As such, they can
participate in the course in an identical manner as the group members and
A Group Administrator is not counted as part of the group for billing purposes.
