SAPPHIRE TRAINING 2015

Training resources for using Sapphire tools

 
 
STAFF TRAINING TRAINING
(For ALL SCA K-12 Teachers)

Learn about 3 new & exciting tools in the Sapphire Learning Management System (LMS): 
LESSON PLANNER
COMMUNITY WEB PORTAL (CWP)
TEST BUILDER

Most of the training for these tools will be provided through short archived video tutorials which are loaded to the “Sapphire Resource Center”, accessible under the “HELP” menu. You must be logged into Sapphire, and in the LMS to access the videos linked in the training section below. (you can locate the videos on your own too!)

GOALS & PROCESS FOR LEARNING THESE NEW TOOLS:

 ACCESS: See directions below to access the video tutorials and manuals to assist with learning about each tool:
(1) Log into Sapphire!! Select the LMS (Learning Management System)
(2) Click the “HELP” link in the upper right corner to open the "Sapphire Resource Center”. (This MUST BE OPENED to access the video tutorials and manuals from the links below.)

 PREVIEW & REVIEW: Preview (& review if needed) the video tutorials under each of the tools below, and I recommend downloading the manuals as references if needed for setting up or adding new skills in the future.

PRACTICE / PRODUCE: Once you finish the training for each of the three tools, you should spend time setting up and using the features as demonstrated in the video. (A checklist of “required” features is listed for each tool. (may vary by building!) Features required are at the discretion of your principal!
