Moodle and Schoology Courses

Moodle and Schoology courses may be 36-week full year courses or 18-week semester courses. To identify semester courses, look for Sem 1 or Sem 2 in the course name.

Accelerate Education Courses

Almost every Accelerate Education course is an 18-week semester course (there are a few exceptions). Semester A courses are taught in the fall and Semester B courses are taught in the spring. If the course name does not include the letter A or B, the course can be taught in either the fall or spring semester.

~ If the course is an elective, you can enroll the student in either the fall (A) or the spring (B) semester. The same content is taught in both the A and B courses.

~ If you want a student to complete a full year core course, you will need to enroll the student in both A and B courses (e.g., Language Arts 3 A and Language Arts 3 B).

Pay close attention to the Enrollment Start and End Dates.

From the eAcademy Online Course Catalog, search for available courses. You can search by Course Title, Subject, Academic Type, Course Length, Vendor, or Grade Level. Click a course name to view the course description and syllabus.

Before you move to the next step, make sure there are seats available in the desired course. From the Genius Dashboard, review the Total Seats by Section.

  1. If the desired course has no seats available, then look for a similar course with available seats.

  2. If you need to select a course that is full, please contact the eAcademy Help Desk and request an increase to the seat cap. List the course name, teacher name, and the number of required seats.

Click Students from the top menu bar.

From the left navigation menu, click Bulk Enroll.

Search criteria: To limit the number of students, set your search criteria. In the example below, a Grade Level of 8 was selected to only view 8th graders (this criteria depends on OEAs entering the grade level for each active eAcademy student). You may also want to select Active from the Status drop-down menu.

From search results, select the students you want to enroll in the course you determined at the beginning. If you want to select all the students that appear in the results, click Check All.

Click Bulk Enroll below the list of student names.

Select a School: Select WIU eAcademy.

Term: From the drop-down menu, select the current term. The Start Date will automatically populate.

Start Dates for Full Year, Semester 1, and Semester A Courses:

Depending on when you enroll a student, the Start Date will default to either the first day of the school year (Aug. 30, 2021) or the current date. For example, if enrolling a student on Aug. 22, 2021, the Start Date will default to Aug. 30, 2021. After Aug. 30, 2021, the Start Date will default to the current date.

Start Dates for Semester 2 and Semester B Courses:

If you enroll a student in Semester 2 courses prior to the start of Semester 2, the Start Date will default to either the first day of the school year (Aug. 30, 2021) or the current date. For example, if enrolling a student on Oct. 21, 2021 for a Semester 2 course, the Start Date will default to Oct. 21, 2021.

~ Prior to January 15, 2022, you must edit the Start Date for Semester 2 courses and select January 15, 2022.

~ NOTE: If you enter the incorrect Start Date for Semester 2 courses, the system will charge you. Pay attention to the course you select (Sem 1 or Sem 2) and the applicable Start Date.

Course: From the Course drop-down menu, select the desired course.

NOTES:

~ Pay attention to course names so that you select the correct course. Moodle courses without Sem 1 or Sem 2 in the course name are full year courses.

~ Most Accelerate Education course names contain A (fall semester) or B (spring semester). Courses without A or B in the course name are typically semester courses and can be scheduled during either semester.

Section: From the Section drop-down menu, select the desired section. Moodle sections end with MD and Schoology sections end with SC.

10/06/2021 NOTE: DO NOT select any Schoology sections (name ends in SC). We are working to integrate Genius with Schoology, which is not ready yet.

Start Date: While typically not necessary, if you need to edit the Start Date, click once in the field to show the calendar, and select the desired Start Date or you can type directly in the field.

Semester 2 Start Date: 1/15/2022 or current date after 1/15/2022
