How long does it take to complete the module?

The module can be rolled out in a variety of ways. How the module is to be implemented will be decided by the individual school. An example of implementation is to complete one CyberEcho lesson per week over a period of 6-8 weeks. The time needed to complete the course will depend on the IT devices available to each student, each student’s ability and the need for additional teacher support while completing the course.

What do I need to run the course?

Students need to work on the course individually using a computer, laptop or tablet with the option of headphones to listen to the audio and work their way independently through the module. In addition, to ensure they have the best experience possible when running the program, we recommend using the most up-to-date version of Google Chrome.

See http://www.google.com/chrome/ and http://www.google.com/chrome/education/browser/
for further information.

How do I setup the course for my students? Will they need my help?

After payment, a welcome email is sent to the chosen email contact that you provided during the purchasing process. This contains access details for the class teacher to begin.

Following the class teacher's initial input, the teacher dashboard instructs how to add students to the list one by one to generate their accounts. As each student is added, a student account is generated as well as creating a username and an initial password for each student to be used for their first login. The system also creates a ‘print out’ template containing these details allowing the class teacher to distribute them individually and confidentially to the students for their initial login process.

Once they enter the system using their initial login details, they will then be asked to create their own unique password. Following the student password input, lessons are assigned to each individual student on their learner dashboard. Students then work through the course clicking through the slides, listening to audio instruction, reading short pieces of information, answering practise questions, watching film clips and completing activities and tasks in their ‘offline’ journal. Student progress can be tracked by the class teacher with the ability to run reports on course completion and the time that the student has taken to do so.​

Is there a limit for the amount of student accounts available per class?

Yes. There is a limit of up to 35 students per class.

How long can we access CyberEcho?

Once you have signed up, you will have access to CyberEcho for 12 months. Alerts will be sent nearing the end of your subscription time to remind you of the date the account closes and to prompt you to renew your subscription, should you wish to.

What do I (or the IT department) have to do to setup CyberEcho?

After making payment and providing the main contact email address, licensing details will be sent to this email contact which provide information on how to generate your student accounts. This process is easy to follow and can be entered by the class teacher. The process instantly generates student accounts along with their login details. Once all the students have been entered, the next step is to begin their initial login. Once all the students have logged in, the class teacher can manage when they access their learner dashboard to begin the program.

What are the technical requirements, as this is online?

See http://www.google.com/chrome/ and http://www.google.com/chrome/education/browser/
for further information.

Can teachers track who has finished the course or where they are up to?

Yes, the class teacher will have full access to each individual student’s progress in the ‘My Students’ page. On this page, you have the ability to generate a ‘progress report’ for each lesson and an ‘average course completion time’ report. The teacher also has the ability to reset a task for a student they feel may need to repeat a section to either assist their understanding, their ability or at the teacher’s discretion. At the end of the course, the teacher is able to generate a completion certificate so this can be shared with parents / carers, detailing what the students have learnt.

Can I share my course passcode / password with someone else?

No. The access details we provide are only for the account manager that has opened the account specifically for your school, your class or your organisation.

​< Back to questions on top

Do we need to be online to run the course?

Yes. The course is available on an online platform called a Learning Management System and you will need to run this on the internet. To make sure you have the best experience possible when running the program, we recommend using the most up-to-date version of Google Chrome.

I’m not working at a school, could I still sign up and use CyberEcho?

You can sign up to use CyberEcho if you belong to an organisation or group that works with students between the age of 9 to 12 years old and you can assign up to 34 users to work through the program. Your contact details will be retained in your account manager profile so we can assist you accordingly, if required.
