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.
