TECH TALK TUESDAY
With so many centers still online, and so many still with questions about how to track students virtually, for our inaugural Tech Tip Tuesday presentation, we decided to focus on virtual sign-in stations and how they work. This feature is one of the best tools for tracking virtual sessions in Accudemia.
Jorge Rodriguez, one of our Software Support Specialists, walked attendees through the process of setting up and using virtual sign-in stations or kiosks.
He pointed out some important similarities and differences between physical and virtual kiosks in Accudemia. While both are highly configurable and customizable and both create session logs from the sign-ins, virtual kiosks can be accessed on any device connected to the internet, and require users to log into Accudemia with their username and password (or the school’s student portal if Single Sign-On credentials are in place). Students use the virtual sign-in stations to access virtual appointments with tutors or staff.
Jorge then demoed how to install virtual sign-in stations on a computer:
Once you get the hang of virtual kiosks, you’ll realize they’re an essential but simple tool for tracking any virtual sessions, whether they’re walk-ins or by appointment.
Let us know in the comments if you’ve used virtual kiosks in your center!
