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.

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 automatically have an account, BUT they will need to set up a password. 

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.

Can I swap students or class lists?

Can I swap or delete student names at the end of a semester?

No, you cannot swap/delete student emails at the end of a semester.  E-Course subscriptions expire 5 months after a student begins the course.  Teachers may not delete or swap more than 10% of class email list after 10 days of course initiation. Once a student has used the course, you cannot transfer the course to another student.

Is there a way to assign specific activities and/or hide certain ones?

The system does not currently allow group leaders to hide specific quizzes/activities to prevent students from completing specific activities, but why would you want to?!

We have designed courses to help you provide additional comprehensible input in a format that is engaging and conducive to language acquisition. Each time your students complete a quiz/activities they are getting additional exposure to CI that specifically tailored to help them acquire the language.

Just because the system keeps track of all the scores that your students earn does not mean that you have to count them all!  Group leaders can count one score, take an average of all scores, or select the highest score for each chapter or course. The data is reported for you to get a holistic perspective of each student, not to overwhelm you with grades. Each activities can serve as an easy formative assessment to help you keep tabs on student progress.
