HSE eLearning FAQs

COVID-19 Edition


What is an eLearning day?
An eLearning day is an IDOE-approved instructional day that can be used to make up instructional time using technology. HSE Schools will be utilizing an eLearning day as a makeup day for inclement weather or a valid school closure event. An official eLearning date will be declared for attendance purposes; however, students will have a ‘window’ of dates to complete their assignments.
 
What does an eLearning day look like for students?
Students will receive online instructional content provided by their teachers. These lessons will be interactive and relate to the curriculum for the specific class. Students will have access to their teachers via email or another method communicated by the teacher. Teachers will let students know how and when they will be available. Teachers will have eLearning content available no later than 9:00 a.m. of an eLearning day.
For grades K-4, eLearning will be communicated in the eLearning section of the teacher’s Canvas course.
For grades 5-12, eLearning will be communicated via the announcement section in Canvas.
 
As a general guideline, eLearning assignments/activities should take between 20-30 minutes per class/content area. At the K-4 level where assignments/activities blend across multiple content areas, teacher will communicate about how long the assignment/activity should take to complete.
 
When will an eLearning assignment be due?
Teachers have the flexibility to set deadlines/due dates for submissions. However, students must have a minimum of three-days to complete assignments/activities during the eLearning period.
 
Will the eLearning work be taken for a grade?
Teachers will have discretion to determine if an eLearning assignment will count for a grade or not.
 
What if students have questions about their assignments?
Teachers will communicate to their students how they may be reached for questions or concerns. Likewise, students can ask questions to their teachers when at school during the open window time of the eLearning event.
 
What if the student does not have their device at home? What if the student does not have access to the internet?
Students may complete eLearning assignments on any device available to them and use any internet connection available to them (friend’s house, library, etc.). Families can reach out to their cellular company to inquire if data caps have been waived. Comcast is offering free internet for qualified families. We also have WiFi available in the parking lots of Geist Elementary and New Britton Elementary.
 
How does my student log into Canvas?
Canvas resources for students, including log in information, can be found here.
 
How will attendance be taken?
Attendance will be taken by students logging into Canvas on the eLearning day. Teachers in grades 7-12 need only to take attendance for their first period class.
 
If you have further questions regarding the eLearning day(s), we encourage you to speak with your teachers.
