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.

Even better: instead of just adding text, show the students by including a video!  It is easier than you think.  Just record a short video and upload it to YouTube.  Once there, you can share it by clicking on “Share” link below the video on YouTube.  Click “Embed” which gives you the HTML code you need to include the video on your Accudemia site.  Here is a screenshot of this:

 
Now copy the HTML code by highlighting all of it and hitting Ctrl-C (or Command-C on Mac) on your keyboard.  In Accudemia, go to your Control Panel, click Announcements, and select College Level or the Center you want the video to appear.  Then click the source button and paste the HTML code into that section.


Click “Save Changes” and load “My homepage” to view your new custom video instructions!


If you do not have a video recorded and want a test video you can use:

Did you know? You can create groups from filtered reports

On reports: when you create and filter a report it "automatically" creates a User Group. After creating a report that you need, where you have filtered all of the students with " MATH "(Subject Areas), selected only the " Freshman "(Student Demographic) who have visited the center for " Tutoring "(Service Type) more than 3 times on a Visitor History report you decide you want to save that group and call them " Freshman needing Math Help ." You can do this after you run that report by visiting the User Accounts > Groups section on the left-side navigation panel. Once there simply click on the Report Generated Groups tab, then click on the report you just ran, and click edit .  At this point you can name the group and hit save changes and the group will now be available for you to use as a group filter in future reports.
