FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if I don’t want to enter my students’ complete first and last name?

You may enter any data you choose for first and last name. i.e.: initials, characters, numbers, combinations of letters and numbers, complete or partial names.

 

What is the best way to handle student passwords?

If uploading a CSV or adding students individually, give each student the same ‘default’ password. They will log in with their username (user_login) and their password. The first time they log in, instruct them to go to their profile to change their password.

 

I uploaded with Google and did not have the option to pre-assign a password.

Teachers can quickly change student passwords using the ‘Change Password’ button next to each student’s name. Simply click change, enter the password and click ‘ok’. Tip: Assign a default password to each student and simply paste the same password to each student. Instruct students to change their password upon their first log-in into the system.

 

What is the ID?

It is a unique number automatically assigned to students who are enrolled in an E-learning group.

 

Where do I find the ID?

The ID is found on the Group Registration page (in your profile). Go to the Group Registration page, select a group, and you’ll see the user ID to the left of each student’s name. NOTE: You can copy your student roster directly from the Group Registration page; it pastes neatly it into a spreadsheet. (Simply delete columns of irrelevant data, such as “change password.”)

 

What if the system is asking for an ID for a NEW student?

If you are enrolling a new student and the system is asking you for an ID number, it means that you are trying to assign a Username already in use. Enter a different, UNIQUE Username or let the system auto-assign one.

 

How do I re-enroll existing students?

If you are using a CSV spreadsheet, download the updated template and minimally, fill in the column(s) that serve as a Unique Identifier (email address, a username or the ID.) You can fill all columns with data or just the Unique Identifier column(s).

 

What is a ‘Unique Identifier’?

It is a unique label that no other user could possibly have. The ID number is always unique, as is an email address. (Remember, students do NOT need to have an email to be enrolled on the FM Learning platform.) A Username (user_login) should also be unique, but sometimes teachers try to enroll students with a user name already in use. Try to avoid assigning ‘predictable’ usernames such as JaneD, JDoe, BobS, etc.).

 

Adding students without an email address:

No email address is needed to register students. Just leave the Email column empty on your CSV spreadsheet, but be sure to keep the ‘user_email’ header in place. If entering students individually, leave the email field blank.

 

Adding students without a pre-assigned user_login and without email:

Just leave the ‘user_email’ and the ‘user_login’ columns empty on your CSV spreadsheet. Be sure to keep the ‘user_email’ and ‘user_login’ headers in place. If entering students individually, leave the email and user_login fields blank.

 

Can a user_login (username) be automatically generated?

Yes! If you leave the user_login column blank, the system will automatically generate a username using the first and last name you provided, plus a random series of numbers.

 

If I did not pre-assign Usernames nor emails, how/where can I find student log-in information?

As soon as you complete the upload of your student CSV list, a message will appear to download “User Data.” The User Data provides a spreadsheet of all data, including passwords. If you do not, download the User Data, you can copy and paste user data from the class lists(s) on the Group Registration page. NOTE: You can copy your student roster directly from the Group Registration page; it pastes neatly it into a spreadsheet.

 

What if I did not download the User Data and my students and I do not know their passwords?

Teachers can quickly change student passwords using the ‘Change Password’ button on the class roster. Simply click change, enter the password and click ‘ok’.
