In addition to providing students a gateway to eLearning through the LMS (Learning Management System) , Administrate also lets students log into a student portal, using the LMS as a platform. This is for all your students, regardless of whether they’re registered to an LMS Event: all your Contacts that get registered onto an Event will be able to access the LMS with their email address and password.
This student portal provides a student experience by letting them see information related to the Events they registered for, or progress within a Learning Track they’re assigned to . By having this resource, your students can access their relevant Event information anytime, anywhere.
Your students will be able to access the Student Portal through the LMS link:
For example, if you usually access Administrate through e1training.administrateapp.com , then your students will be able to access the student portal through e1training.administratelms.com .
Once the student selects their Event, there will be 3 tabs:
Students can also edit their own details and set their preferences in their Profile .
Every student that you add onto an Event will have a login username for the LMS Student Portal: their email address. If not, you can set them up manually, and see their Username in their Contact screen.
Once you press LMS Setup, you’ll be notified of them being successfully set up. Once set up, this button will change to Reset Password.
The Overview presents your students with information related to the Event selected:
They’ll also be able to see any Documents which you upload to the Events’ screen, in the Outline tab. This is particularly useful for distributing material required before and/or after the Event has started/finished, such as prerequisite reading, forms that need to be handed in during the Event, etc. If you’re thinking about uploading your Event’s feedback form, then see the section on Feedback .
Your students can see the sessions for the Event they have selected. This includes the recording of the attendance (this is not modifiable by the student).
Your students can see the documents you upload to your Events. In the Outline tab in your Event, you can upload documents, or use existing ones from your DMS (Document Management System).
Your students can check the Scores you recorded for them at the Event, according to the Student Scores Template . This means you don’t have to worry about having to inform them, manually, of the results, and students can track their own results and progress by simply logging in.
Your students can provide feedback for the Events that they attended. This alleviates the need for you to print, distribute and collate feedback forms, and to manually enter the results - depending on the number of students registered, this can be a lot of manual work. Furthermore, because your students can log into the Student Portal anytime, anywhere, they don’t need to stay at the Event to fill out the feedback form. You can also email reminders about filling in feedback, and chase them up without worrying about where that piece of paper went!
Administrate also integrates with Survey Monkey so you can create and edit your own Feedback survey forms.
Students can view and edit their details and preferences in their Profile setting. Here they can view and make changes to their:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
- Job Title
- Language (for the LMS Student Portal)
When a student makes changes about themselves, these changes will be reflected in their Contact record in the CRM.
This will set the LMS Portal Language for the student.
Please note that this will only apply to wording of the headers, e.g. Courses, Resources, Latest News. Your Event Titles and other LMS Settings will be in the language they are saved in. Please refer to the LMS Settings in the Control Panel for more information on how to set these.
The text boxes will also operate in the manner of the set language. i.e. in the case of right-to-left languages, such as Arabic, typing in the text boxes will start from the right side of the field, as opposed to left-to-right languages such as English.
Languages currently supported:
Within the student’s profile, there is a Financials tab. This displays a list of the Invoices raised for this student and which ones have been marked as paid. The student will be able to click on the Invoice and view/download the PDF, which can save you emailing the Invoice and the student will always have a record of the Invoice.
