Preparing for Online Learning


Newsfeed and emails will be used to inform you of the expectations for the day or week.

Learning Assessments

Compass Learning Assessments will be used to notify you of work and due dates for that work. You will not necessarily submit all your work through Compass, but at the very least teachers will be creating assignments with due dates.

Compass Resources

We are aiming to make it as logical and obvious to you how to access the resources you need and keep on top of your work. Most teachers will be using a Compass to present a unit of work, which will consist of files, external links, media and assignments. Of course, some subjects have a different way of presenting their material that you may be used to –like edrolo and STIL. It is not expected that this approach is abandoned as it will have cause confusion. Some of you may be in classes where other tools are being used – and have been used over time – effectively (such as OneNote and O365 Teams).

If you feel the way the course has been set up is not intuitive or easy to use, please let your teacher know and offer a helpful suggestion on what you or the class think would work better.
