What Does An E-Course Include?

An E-course contains 3 components and includes access to the online flip book (ebook), the AUDIO book, various pre- and post-reading input-driven activities and quizzes.

How to purchase an E-course with a Purchase Order?

The teacher who will be using the E-course must already have an account on our Fluency Matters site. If no account has been set up, please do that first before completing the steps below.

 

To complete your purchase and set up your course, please visit the FluencyMatters.com website and go to the desired course. Indicate the number of students in each group by indicating that number in the quantity drop-down option. Add that number to your cart. Repeat that process until all of your groups and titles have been added to your cart. Upon check out, select “Pay with PO.” Once we RECEIVE your online purchase, we will confirm your order, and the courses and groups should appear in your profile. If you need assistance setting up your course, please visit our “How-to video tutorials” .

 

If you need assistance setting up multiple groups within your profile, please email info@fluencymatters.com the name of each group and number (ie: Period 1-Frida Kahlo 25 students, Period 2 -Frida Kahlo 18 students, etc.).

Once I Purchase An E-Course, What Is The Process For Setting Up An E-Course?

Once you have purchased a GROUP subscription, you will receive an email confirmation of your purchase in which you will be instructed to log into the site to access your profile.

Go to your profile and look for the Group Registration icon.


Once you add students to your course (See instructions for adding students below.), students will be emailed their log-in credentials.

IMPORTANT: (Re)Setting a password requires a valid email address AND a server that accepts mail from Info@FluencyMatters.com. If your school blocks our email messages, your students will not be able to set up their password. Therefore, your school/district server must whitelist Info@FluencyMatters.com mail!

Once students have set up their password and are able to log into the site, they will find their E-course(s) in their profile.

How To Set Up A Fluency Matters E-Course

How Long Is An E-course Subscription?

Premium class (or group) and individual subscriptions run for 5 months. The clock starts ticking toward the 5-month subscription as soon as a teacher enters a student e-mail into his/her e-course (ie: teacher enrolls student on August 1st, then e-course would expire January 1st).

How Does An Individual Subscription Differ From A Premium Class Subscription?

An individual subscription gives a user access to the same 3 components, but the Class Subscription includes additional features, including the ability to upload and manage students, monitor students progress, and get grade reports for the students on your course.

How Much Does An Individual Subscription Cost?

6-month subscription – $6.00

How Much Does A 5-Month Premium Subscription Cost?

5-30 students: $4.75 per student

31-60 students: $4.50 per student

61-90 students: $4.25 per student

91-140 students: $4.00 per student

141+ students: $3.50 per student

 

-150 students: $3.50 per student

What if I want to purchase an E-course with a Purchase Order?

How Do I Upload A Class List And Maintain Subscriptions And Classes?

How do I upload a Class List?

Go to your profile and click on the E-course subscription for which you need to upload a class. Three tabs will appear: Invited Students; Add Email; Import Email. Use the “Add Email” tab to add email addresses for individual students. Use the “Import Email” tab to upload a CSV file, which is created from Excel.

How do I create a CSV file for my class list?

Open Excel and create a new spreadsheet. In the top left cell, write “email”; second column heading: “name”; third column heading “last_name”. Fill in the applicable student information under each heading.  (email | name | last_name)

CSV-sample

Save the Excel files as a CSV file. (Select SAVE AS from the File menu.) Click submit, and the list of students will appear under the “Invited Students” tab.

Can I add more students to a subscription once it is purchased?

Yes. Go to your profile and click on the tab “Purchased Courses and Books.” Under the applicable book, go to the link that says “Purchase more students.”

Can I swap students or class lists?

No, the original class list you assign to an E-course cannot be deleted and replaced with another. However, you CAN delete students who never joined the class and/or add more names to the list, as long as you purchased an adequate number of subscriptions.

What E-Courses Are Available?

All Spanish titles are available, with the exception of the new books for which we are currently creating ancillary materials/activities. There are a handful of French titles are currently being added and other languages will also be added soon.
