Acellus Educator Training

The Acellus Educator Training is an extensive certification and training event that is designed to empower administrators and teachers to effectively deploy web-learning programs.  This three-day training is held at the campus of the Institute of Science & Technology (IST) in Kansas City.

Who Should Attend?

This training is for educators who will be involved in designing and managing the implementation of Acellus in their school or district. Educators attending will learn effective strategies for deploying Acellus in diverse programs, including credit recovery, special education, remediation, gifted, and advanced placement. They will also be trained on best practices for effectively managing and operating blended learning deployments. It is recommended that districts have at least one Acellus Certified Administrator at each school in the district.

Why Should I Attend?

Upon completion of this course, attendees will understand various models of Web-Learning and how they can be incorporated within various educational environments using Acellus. They will be familiar with successful strategies for implementing Acellus as well as how to configure classes in the system. Attendees will gain hands-on experience and basic troubleshooting skills for technology including Acellus GoldBook Pro Computers and GoldKey authentication. They will also be familiar with the tools and resources of the Acellus Courseware Development System.

The Acellus Educator Training attendees will have the opportunity to collaborate with educators from across the nation and will hear from districts recognized as “Showcase Districts” because of their effective and successful deployments of Acellus in their schools.

What Certification Will I Receive?

Attendees who demonstrate proficiency in setting up and configuring Acellus deployments will receive the Acellus Administrator Certification from IAS.

This certification indicates educators are prepared to help maintain a school or district implementation of the Acellus Learning System and to assist teachers with Acellus class setup and management.
