New Schoolyear - MBO
As an educational institution, you can get started with Holmwood's in 3 different ways. Each way has pros and cons. We list them for you below. In all cases, make sure Holmwood's knows which way you choose. This has consequences for the layout of your account. If you have any questions about this, please contact us.
1. As an educational institution, you purchase the licenses.
If you, as an educational institution, purchase the licenses directly from Holmwood's, order the desired number of licenses prior to the new academic year. To get started with your students, read these instructions or ask Holmwood's to enroll your students. With this variant, you as a teacher/school have the most control.
2. The student logs in and pays
This variant is very similar to variant 1, with the only difference that the student pays at the first login. Make sure you pass on the correct number to Holmwood's prior to the school year. With this option you have a lot of control, the only thing that can go wrong is the payment by the student, think of a card or forgotten mobile.
3. The student buys the license himself via a webshop (Studers / MBO webshop)
Students purchase their own license through a supplier of educational materials, such as Studers, MBO, etc.. The various web shops and Holmwoods use the "eduroute". When logging in from the webshop, something can sometimes go wrong, so that students cannot get started right away.
PS. Even if students buy the licenses themselves, it is important that Holmwood's knows this and receives an estimate from you of the number of students that Holmwood's will start working on.
What do you need to know and do as a teacher?
1. Create the classes (Holmwood's administrator*1)
To ensure that the students end up in the correct classes, create the classes in the Holmwood's administration environment before the students log in. If you also used Holmwood's in the past year, there is a good chance that the class names will remain (largely) the same. Add a new class (name) if necessary.
Also link the classes to (1) the subscription (via School management > Subscriptions) and (2) to the relevant teachers (via Management > Classes).
If you also used Holmwood's in the past school year, all (existing) students are already linked to a class. To ensure that they are linked to the correct (new) class at the start of the new school year, we recommend that you disconnect all students from their current class.
2. Create the class code (administrator)
Create a class code per class that the teacher gives to the students. The students enter this code at 'How does it work for you as a student, step 4'. This puts the students in the correct class. The class code always has the same format; “H-” followed by 6 numbers/letters (eg H-9S9WUU).
3. Check/adjust course settings (administrator/teacher)
