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.
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.
An E-course contains 3 components:
An E-Book contains 2 components:
The clock starts ticking toward the 5-month subscription as soon as the purchase is made and the E-Learning Module appears in your profile.
E-course subscriptions are 5 months and are NOT extendable. It is not possible to add time, thus the reason each course is allotted a generous amount of time to complete. Five months should be more than enough time.
5-month subscription – $6.00
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
Our new system allow teachers to manage their student accounts / log-in credentials without the need for an email address. Watch the “Adding Students” video learn how. Be sure to download the USER DATA from the link that appears immediately after you upload students to your course. The USER DATA download contains all log-in information for students.
CAVEAT: If your students do not have a valid email address, they obviously will not be able to receive email or any notifications from Fluency Matters. That means they will not be able to use the “Forgot my password” function at Fluency Matters. It they keep the assigned password, this should not be an issue.
Groups created after April 30, 2020 will provide the option to “Add a Group Leader” to the course you have purchased. The person who purchased the E-learning module is given a Group Manager title. The Group Manager can assign a group leader and/or elevate a teacher to replace him/her as a Group Manager.
If your group was created before April 30, 2020, we can add your co-teacher to the course for you. Just email E-learning@FluencyMatters.com with the request.
Can I swap students or class lists?
The original class list you assign to an E-course cannot be deleted and replaced with another. However, you CAN delete a student who never joined the class and/or add more names to the list, as long as you have slots left in your roster/max enrollment has not been exceeded.
Before you begin reading, open the glossary using a RIGHT CLICK to open it. This will open the glossary in a new tab, giving you instant access by simply toggling between the flipbook tab and the glossary tab.
When taking a quiz, it is also helpful to right click to open a quiz in a new tab. That way students can have the book open for reference while they are taking a quiz or completing an activity.
All devices cache data, and you may notice phenomenon but not realize what’s happening. For example, if you fill out a form online, and your info auto-populates, that’s stored data on YOUR device. If you have ever put items in an online shopping cart, and gone back days later and the items are still there, that’s cached data. Passwords often are “remembered,” and that too is cached data. When you are progressing through a course, logging lots of grade/progress, etc. and also surfing the internet, your device is caching a ton of data. This cached data can prevent your machine from properly loading a variety of websites, but especially those that function under a logged-in account holder.
Note that Chromebooks, i-phones and i-pads are notorious for storing cookies on your device in a problematic way, so clearing the cache on those devices is usually required more often than on other devices. Read helpful information about clearing the cache on i-phone/i-pad.
If you already have an account on FluencyMatters.com, log in. If you do not have an account, an account will be created automatically when you finalize your purchase.
Again, if you are already a customer/user on FluencyMatters.com, be sure you log in with the SAME EMAIL address from your existing account.
If you are a NEW CUSTOMER, enter the information, using an email address that you would like to be your official account email. A personal address is fine. Just choose the ONE that is most accessible to you throughout the year.
If paying with a purchase order, select “Pay with PO” and finalize your purchase. Click PLACE ORDER. You must fax or email a copy of an official purchase order before your order will be confirmed. E-courses will NOT appear in your profile until the PO or payment is submitted.
If paying with credit card, enter payment info and click place order.
Once your order is finalized, the confirmation page will load and give you the option to immediately add students to your groups. You can add students immediately if your students will NOT be using Email addresses to set up their accounts. Regardless if you are adding students with or without an email address, you can go to your profile (link at the top of the page) to view your e-course(s) and add your students. If you do not see your course, log out of the site, clear cache and log back in. Your course(s) should appear in your profile.
Once you have purchased a GROUP subscription, a banner will appear on the confirmation page giving you the option to immediately add students to your groups. Go to that link if you have your CSV file ready to upload. If not, you can return to your profile later to add students.
If your students are using SCHOOL EMAIL addresses, BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR IT DEPT. WHITELIST OUR DEDICATED IP ADDRESS BEFORE YOU ADD STUDENTS TO YOUR COURSE. Email info@FluencyMatters.com for IP info. Once FM IP is whitelisted, go to your profile and click on the Group Registration icon.
If your students are NOT using email addresses, you can proceed to the Group Registration Page. Click on the Group Registration icon.
Click on ADD USERS. There are two options:
Add user and UPLOAD USERS
2. Upload Users as a Batch: Add multiple students simultaneously by uploading a CSV file. To create a csv file, SAVE AS ‘csv’ format from Excel, Google Sheets or Numbers.
Create a spreadsheet with exactly five columns. Write the headers exactly as shown. SAVE AS .csv. (You can download a template from the Group Registration page.)
If you are adding EXISTING users to a new course or group, create the spreadsheet with the same 5 column headers, but only fill in the EMAIL address for each user (student). The email column is the only column that you need to fill in. The system will find student accounts through their email address and auto-populate the rest of the info.
If you are adding NEW users, you have the OPTION to pre-assign email address, user log-in and password. If you do not pre-assign user log-in, email, and password, the system will auto-generate unique entries for each. Be sure to download the USER DATA immediately after you upload your class lists so that you have a record of students’ log-in information.
NOTE: User names must be unique. With 130,000 users, it will be a bit challenging to create a unique user name. Therefore, we recommend that you leave the user_log-in column empty under the header to avoid having the system reject an entry because the user name already exists. If you leave the column empty, the system will generate a unique user name for each student.
Once your csv file is ready, click Add Users as a Batch. “Choose File.” Upload the file from your computer.
Click Submit. Your students will automatically be uploaded to your group.
If you want to download a grade report, click on the gradebook icon. Scroll to the bottom of the list. Click the blue button that says “Export Gradebook” to download a spreadsheet of all student grades.
