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:

Referrals and Early Alert System Quick Start

I decided to write a quick step-by-step guide to start using the Referral and Early Alert System (AREAS). I hope it will help you get started with the software in just a couple minutes. In this post everything is done by hand, that means that you are going to have to type all student names, subject areas and all the information you might need. Once you have the whole thing up and running you probably will import all the other information; so I suggest you to start creating one or 2 students, one or 2 instructors, and so on. If it’s the first time you access Accudemia, maybe you went through the initial Configuration Wizard which let’s you setup the basic stuff. In this guide we will verify all the required information is there, and create it if it is not. 1. Create the Staff Accounts: It’s always a good point to start; once you have created the administrator accounts in Accudemia they can help you to setup all the other things. You can do it from the User Accounts menu. Just make su
