Tech Tip: Add a Video to your Accudemia Home Page

This tip was explained during our Orlando training session and we thought to share it with you here.  Do you want to explain something about Accudemia or your center to your students?  For example, maybe you have been getting frequent questions on how to schedule appointments.

Accudemia offers you two places for showing these instructions.  One place is on the log-in screen of your sign-in stations.  The second is the “My Homepage” section that students see once they have logged into Accudemia.

And now for our top 3 selections!  Drum…
