Training Materials

Training on the platform is available through our small group sessions, and can also be arranged for individuals or departments interested in a training. Typical sessions last 30 minutes for an overview of platform features. Specific trainings on the campaign feature (which allows students to book appointments with you online within the day, time parameters you set) are offered each October and February to coincide with timely registration initiatives and the registration matrix. 

Individual training sessions can be requested by emailing ssc_help@stcloudstate.edu with your available dates/times. Your assigned trainer will reach out to confirm your meeting.

Responding to Progress Report Campaigns

Instructors may be asked to submit progress reports on students in their courses during the semester. To participate, follow these instructions: 

  • Click the personalized link in your invitation email and click "Fill out Progress Reports"
  • You will see the list of students separated by course and section
  • Indicate if the student is at risk for failing your course 
  • In the Comments section, consider adding information that will be helpful to advisors and Husky Coaches who are reaching out to the students. Examples: 
    • Student should meet with me during office hours to get back on track and discuss late work.
    • Student has never attended or logged into course materials.
    • Student can pass by submitting late homework at 50% grade. 
  • When you are finished click the blue "Submit unmarked students as not At-Risk (I'm all done) button.
