Victoria Day Closure

We will be closed Monday, May 20, 2019 for Victoria Day. We are back on Tuesday, May 21st! View full details

We use two main systems at ADLC

Student Information System (SIS)

SIS is ADLC’s live, secure student record used by students, parents, guardians, teachers, facilitators and ADLC staff.  SIS is compliant with the Government of Alberta’s Provincial Approach to Student Information (PASI) system and uses the benefits of a modern and robust software system.

Students, parents and guardians can check grades, see where students are at in their course and send messages to teachers.

Educators/Partner Schools have the ability to enrol their own students, track their students’ progress, maintain their students’ enrolments, create and manage their own sections and add teachers.

How do I get access to SIS?

Educators/Facilitators/Partner Schools are required to create a Affiliation Super User account by filling out the Partner School Registration form.

Already have an account but don’t have the login? No problem! Fill in the same form to update your school’s information.

Once the Super User account has been created/updated, the login credentials are emailed to the Super User and/or partner school Principal. The Super User can then enrol their students into ADLC courses.

Students will receive their login information via email once the Affiliation Super User has enrolled them into an ADLC course.

SIS is accessed through the Login button on the adlc.ca homepage (top right corner) or directly at sis.adlc.caLogin credentials for Moodle and SIS are the same.

SIS TRAINING RESOURCES

 


Moodle (Learning Management System – LMS)

We use an enhanced version of Moodle as the platform where students access their course content, submit assignments, complete quizzes, readings, games, chat with classmates in forums (where applicable) and other additional course-specific activities.

Moodle is where ADLC/TS partner teachers manage their courses and students.

How do I get access to Moodle?

ADLC Moodle is accessed through SIS (recommended) or by visiting moodle.adlc.ca.  

Login credentials for Moodle and SIS are the same.

We’ve hand-picked a few TTS, or “speech synthesis” programs that work best with our systems and courses, as listed below. Choose the software that best suits your needs.

Recommended for All Users

Read&Write for Google Chrome™

Read&Write for Google Chrome uses TTS technology to help students hear text from Google Docs and other common file types aloud. It also provides users with visual aids.

Note: Check with your school facilitator or administrator first, as they may already have the premium version of this software available for your use. If your school does not have the premium version available, a free version is available.

Additional Options

For Windows Users

Narrator for Windows 10

Narrator is a screen reader, which means that this software application works with your computer’s Operating System (OS) to make information on icons, menus, files, and folders audible.

Note: This software is included in, and only available on Windows 10 Operating Systems. No additional downloads or installs are required.

For Mac Users

VoiceOver is also a screen reader.

  • Learn more about VoiceOver on the Apple website or access support for VoiceOver via Apple.

Note: This software is only included in and only available on MacOS (Sierra) Operating Systems. No additional downloads or installs are required.

Accessing Multiple Windows

Having multiple windows open on your computer screen to enable you to work on your assignment while referencing a web page or another document to find information. Windows can be relocated and resized manually to allow more than one window to appear on the desktop. This allows you to reference one window (such as finding information on a webpage) while working actively in the second window.

  • On one of the windows you want to view, click and hold the “maximize” button (the box in upper right corner)
  • Drag cursor to the left or right arrow, depending on which side of the screen you want this window to appear.
  • Repeat steps 1 and 2 above for the second window.

This allows you to reference one window (such as finding information on a webpage) while working actively in the second window

  • Open the first window and hold down the full-screen (green) button in the upper left corner.
  • As you hold down the button, the window will shrink slightly. Then you may drag it to the left or right of the screen and release the button.
  • Then, click the second window to begin using both windows side-by-side.

This allows you to reference one window (such as finding information on a webpage) while working actively in the second window.

To have a split screen on a windows computer:

  • Right-click on an unused part of the task bar, which is the bottom strip of your computer desktop that has the start button at the left.
  • In the resulting pop-up menu, click ‘Show windows side by side’.

This will re-arrange all your windows to make them appear on your desktop; and that might be too many! If you have more than two windows open, you must minimize all but two. To do so, repeat the right-click on the taskbar and again choose Tile Windows Vertically or View Windows Side by Side. Now, you will have two workable windows arranged nicely on your desktop.

This allows you to reference one window (such as finding information on a webpage) while working actively in the second window.
