Getting Started with Group E-Learning
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.
