  1. 1. WELCOME TO AVENTA STUDENT TRAINING! <ul><li>Welcome to Aventa Learning – and welcome to online learning. Once you begin, you’ll find that online learning is easy, fun and feels familiar. </li></ul><ul><li>We’ve created this Student Toolkit to give you the tools for success in your online class. </li></ul><ul><li>You definitely won’t be alone as you navigate your online learning journey. For in-person support, look for Mr. Miner who can answer questions right and be at your virtual side to provide guidance and help steer you to success. </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s get started! </li></ul>
  2. 2. What is AVENTA training? <ul><li>AVENTA Learning delivers online courses to middle and high school students in partnership with schools that allows for you to earn credit at an accelerated rate. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What will I learn while I’m here? <ul><li>You will have class from 4PM – 5PM every Tuesday and Thursday. Most of you are taking Geography with me. Remember, I will not be teaching this course, you already have an online instructor who gives out grades. I will be assisting you as you go through your course to help you complete it. </li></ul>
  4. 19. What do successful online students do?
  5. 20. Student’s First Day <ul><li>When students first log in, they should: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Review the entire Orientation course (found on Aventa Homeroom, along with their regular course) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After reviewing the Orientation course, students should log in to their regular course and find the Orientation unit within their course. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 21. Credit Recovery
  7. 22. Navigating Credit Recovery <ul><li>Aventa’s CR courses assume students have some prior knowledge of the content. </li></ul><ul><li>Each unit begins with an introduction. After reading the introduction, students click “Mark Reviewed” to open up the first section’s quiz. </li></ul><ul><li>Each section begins with a quiz and the first attempt on the quiz acts like a pre-assessment. </li></ul>
  8. 23. Credit Recovery Courses <ul><li>These courses are designed for students that have been exposed to the subject before but for a variety of reasons were not able to receive credit. </li></ul><ul><li>They provide the opportunity for students to complete coursework and receive full credit for a class in a timely manner. </li></ul>
  9. 24. Unit Exams <ul><li>All CR Unit exams are password protected </li></ul><ul><li>Instructors will NOT give passwords to students, only to mentors </li></ul><ul><li>The complete listing of passwords is available in the Mentor Resource Center. </li></ul><ul><li>Mentors should encourage students to study for the unit exams by reviewing content material. </li></ul>
  10. 25. Communication with the Online Instructor
  11. 26. Teacher Communication <ul><li>Teachers need and want frequent communication with both students and mentors </li></ul><ul><li>Mentors, please check your email regularly for instructor communication </li></ul><ul><li>If you know of a situation where a student will be away for any length of time, please inform the instructor! </li></ul>
  12. 27. Ways Teachers Communicate <ul><li>Emails to students and mentors </li></ul><ul><li>Course Announcements </li></ul><ul><li>Elluminate Live! </li></ul>

  14. 29. Final Grade Reports <ul><li>When a student reaches their end date an automatic final grade report will be emailed to the course instructor </li></ul><ul><li>The course instructor will verify the report. </li></ul><ul><li>Once verified, the course instructor will enter the student’s final grade </li></ul>
