Title:  Learning Upgrade’s Remote Learning Action Plan

Learning Upgrade has a plan to help you continue delivering education remotely without direct student contact. With many education providers now required to teach exclusively online, our plan enables you to provide all steps of instruction remotely with students using their smartphones and devices. This webinar will train teachers to remotely self enroll their students, view class reports, and reward student achievement.

If you do not have a Learning Upgrade license at your school, sign up for a free pilot using the ‘Free Pilot for New Users’ form below. Those with existing Learning Upgrade Accounts can skip ahead to Step 2.

Once we process your pilot/license request, the lead contact on the account will receive our ‘Getting Started’ email. This email will provide instructions on student on-boarding, viewing reports, and adding additional teacher accounts. 



Jane Doe,

We have approved your 100-student pilot. Your students can now self-enroll into your class.

Student Self Enrollment 

Students can self enroll into your Learning Upgrade class using class code ‘3456789’.

Students need to download and launch the Learning Upgrade App, click ‘Get Started’, select a course, enter their name, and then enter your class code.

You can print your class code guide with student instructions here: Class Code Sheet

This guide is available in English and Spanish, with buttons at the top left of the guide page to toggle between the two. You will also find a ‘Send to Printer’ button where you can print this guide or use your printer destination menu options to ‘Save as PDF’.

Your students can complete lessons on their tablets, smartphones, and computers. Download the Learning Upgrade App on the Apple App Store and Android Google Play Store, or open the web app using a browser.

Learning Upgrade is a Remote Learning Solution for All

Adult Education

Instructors for traditional and blended-learning classes can use remote onboarding to enroll learners and then track progress. Tutor-based literacy programs including libraries can transition from in-person to home learning using remote onboarding, automatic placement, and tracking. The smartphone-based remote curriculum includes Literacy, ESL, ABE, Math, and GED Prep content.

English Learners

Students at all ESL levels can onboard into a proven curriculum using teacher or automatic placement. The step-by-step lessons with interactive voice and visual help give students a path upward to English proficiency using their own smartphones and devices at home.

K-12, SPED, and Gifted

Teachers and schools can use remote on-boarding with student or parent smartphones to give students engaging lessons in a standards-based curriculum. Teachers working from home can place students with special needs or gifted students at different levels that are responsive to their needs and then track progress and reward success.

Homeless, Migrant, Refugee Students

Remote onboarding and smartphone-based learning can help families who are homeless, migrants, or refugees cope with school closures. New approaches for delivering learning to these communities developed over the past two years can be scaled up rapidly.
