How Do I Use An Acrobatiq Course With My Students?
Step 1: Select a Course to Explore from the catalog
To get a preview of Acrobatiq courseware before using it with your students, just click the “Sign Up For Course Preview” button on any course catalog page:
Acrobatiq instructor preview accounts are available only to validated instructors at recognized educational institutions, and are free of charge. In some cases, Acrobatiq will approve requests from non-faculty members. Acrobatiq validates all preview requests within two business days.
While we verify your status as an educator or partner, you will be enrolled as a student in a DEMO VERSION of the course(s) of your choice. As a student you can access the Table of Contents, navigate and evaluate the content, or update your user profile.
After we add instructor privileges to your account, you have full access to all the courseware’s content and features:
- Graded assessments
- The Learning Dashboard™
- Scheduling tools
2. Adopt a course
When you’ve decided to use an Acrobatiq course with your class, just click ADOPT THIS COURSE for access to the course builder tool.
Step 3: Set Up Your Course
When you Set Up your course you are building a personalized Acrobatiq course just for your students. Using the default settings, it takes about two or three minutes to Set Up a course.
If you like, you can customize the appearance of the content by changing the order or omitting topics you don’t cover.
When you Set Up your course, you’ll be asked to choose a short code, called a “Course Key,” which is used in the Assign Your Course step.
Step 4: Assign Your Course to Students
Your Course Key is one way your students register in your course* (see below regarding LMS registration). They need to first create an Acrobatiq account, and then use the code to register for your course on the My Courses page.
If you would like to give your students more detailed instructions on how to register for your course, you can customize our downloadable student instructions, available under Tutorials and Instructor Resources, by adding your Course Key.
Registration is instant, but if there is a fee for the course students will need to complete payment before gaining access to your class.
*If you decide to deliver your course from your Learning Management System, such as Blackboard, Moodle, Sakai, Canvas, or Desire 2 Learn, the Course Key is not needed. Instead, the link you create in your class automatically admits your students into course without needing to create usernames, passwords, and registrations.

I am a student and I need a Registration Code. How can I obtain one?
Students can obtain a registration code one of four ways:
- You can purchase a registration code online from acrobatiq.com by clicking Student Sign Up in the top right corner. Proceed through the course registration and payment process. Students can purchase access to Acrobatiq courseware with a major credit card, debit card, or by using PayPal.
- You can purchase a registration code through your local school bookstore (provided your bookstore has ordered Registration Codes from Acrobatiq.com), and complete the student sign up process at https://mycourses-acrobatiq.com/students. If you purchase a registration code from a college bookstore and subsequently drop the course, you will need to work directly with the bookstore to arrange an exchange or refund. Acrobatiq cannot make guarantees about a student’s college bookstore’s return policy. Please consult your bookstore’s return policy for details.
- In some cases, you may be required to access Acrobatiq courseware through your campus Learning Management System such as BlackBoard™, Canvas™, Desire 2 Learn™, or Moodle™. If this is the case, the registration code is automatically applied during the payment process. Your instructor will provide additional details on how to get started with the registration and payment process.
- Some institutions may provide Acrobatiq courseware registration codes directly to students. Students that receive a registration code from an instructor should visit https://mycourses-acrobatiq.com/students and follow the Sign Up process.
I am a student and after purchasing a Registration Code, dropped the course. Can I get a refund?
Students who register and purchase access to Acrobatiq courseware directly from acrobatiq.com can request a refund within 14 days from the course start date. Please contact Acrobatiq Support and include your name, institution, and the name of the Acrobatiq course. Note: Acrobatiq cannot provide refunds for registration codes purchased from a campus bookstore; these must be arranged with the bookstore.
I am a student on financial aid. What are my options for purchasing a Registration Code?
If you are a student on financial aid and awaiting FA reimbursement, you may use our “Pay Later” feature.
If choosing the “Pay Later” feature, you will have a 14-day grace period to pay for access to Acrobatiq courseware, during which the courseware will be fully available. After 14 days, you must complete payment or risk being locked out of your courseware. If payment is not made, the work completed during the grace period will not be available to the instructor for purposes of grading or determining participation at the end of the term.
Alternatively, if your financial aid is only valid through your local college bookstore, you can use the Pay Later feature and request your bookstore order a Registration Code on your behalf from acrobatiq.com. We will promptly process and ship the order during the 14-day grace period. Your bookstore should contact our support team for information on how to place an order for Registration Codes with Acrobatiq.
I am a student purchasing access to Acrobatiq courseware. How long will I have access to my courseware?
Once you have successfully registered, you will have access to your Acrobatiq courseware for five years, beginning on the day your instructor sets as your first day of class.
