Best Practices for the Online Learning Center: Proven Ideas

Your excellent feedback about the Online Learning Center has led to big changes to better suit your classroom needs. 

Improvements and new features are to ensure that you can provide your teachers with a flexible, easy-to-use, and transformational tool that lets students engage in Jewish learning using the kinds of technology they use for the rest of their lives. 

You will now see the following changes to your learning space:

- Lessons you purchase from the online Resource Libraries are approved automatically if you pay with credit card or bill it to your synagogue (as long as you are an OLC teacher or Ed Director). This gives you immediate access to these online materials.

- Automatic separation of this year's classes from previous ones. Your redesigned dashboard page include tabs for active and archived classes, so you can access current classes more quickly, while still maintaining access to classes from prior years.

- New notification icon in the header of any page automatically alerts you to changes since the last time you logged in.

- New notification page lists all the new alerts for you. One click will take you directly to the relevant page.

- Students and teachers are able to upload videos, pdf’s and files into their comments within your OLC classrooms.

- You are able to quickly and easily see when licenses for online materials expire and even renew these licenses right from the classroom member list page. 

- You are able to easily keep track of student use of your OLC space with a new view that lets you see the last time your students and teachers logged into your school 

- Easy to read signage now shows you and your students when their software license has expired 

We are always at work making the Online Learning Center work better for you. Your comments help -- simply click the green "Feedback" button from any page in the OLC and let us know about your experiences and any new features that would improve your experience.
