We have prepared a comprehensive Orientation course that will guide you through our e-learning platform, which you can find in the "My Courses" session.
In order to facilitate your access, we have also created this visual guide for you.
Below you will find an imagine of the Dashboard of a sample student account. The Dashboard is your e-learning platform central page, where you have quick access to your profile, the School Announcements, your courses and the community. Everything is lined up to make your access to the courses very easy, and so that you can receive all the important information in one single page.
Each of the Dashboard sections are explained below in this image.
Top of the page
The top section has 4 links, which will always be available from anywhere in the course: these are Dashboard, Orientation, My Classroom and Student Library. You can use these links as quick shortcuts to take you to these 4 areas from anywhere in the platform.
