The iDEA team can generate a snapshot of learner progress for Organisers. Different institutions can have multiple Organiser Codes which can be used to gather analytics for each cohort. 2.
  11. 11. STEP1 Contact the iDEA team via the link on the website to ask for a standard account to be upgraded to Organiser Status. It is helpful to the team if you can provide details about your institution and/or class when applying for your free Organiser Account. STEP2 iDEA HQ will ask you what you need and send you Organiser Codes via email to suit your requirements. The Organiser Code is what will be used to link your learners to your institution and to help you trace the analytics. Learner information and security is protected.
  12. 12. STEP3 Ask your learners to input the ‘Organiser Code’ we assign you. They can do this anytime, to link back to all previous activity. If the learner already has an active account, ask them to update their profile: edit profile, input the Organiser Code and press update. The learner will then see a green banner confirming that their profile has been updated.
  13. 13. ASANADDEDBONUS… When a user is logged into their Organiser account they will be able to see a RERERERE----DO BADGEDO BADGEDO BADGEDO BADGE button on each complted badge.
