Online Platform Information

Moodle

In an effort to enhance your learning experience during our online workshops, we will be providing all participants access to a workshop Moodle site; Carleton’s preferred online Learning Management System (LMS). AP® consultants are encouraged to share easily accessible course content and learning materials with you using this or an equivalent, approved LMS. Prior to the start of the workshop, we will provide details for how you can obtain access to this LMS. Additionally, Carleton ITS Helpdesk support will be made available prior to and during the APSI session. 

For help setting up your Carleton Moodle account, please visit this Moodle Instructions Document.

Zoom

All online workshops will be composed of roughly a 50:50 ratio of asynchronous and synchronous learning opportunities. For the synchronous components of the course, we will be encouraging consultants to utilize Zoom or another approved online conferencing platform for class sessions. Participants are expected to comply with the full thirty hours of synchronous and asynchronous expectations as shared by your workshop consultant.   

Immediate zoom assistance is available during weekday mornings from 8:00AM – 12:00PM.

College Board® Materials

All APSI participants will receive full access to digital files of the required College Board® issued materials that pertain to their workshop.  These materials will be uploaded to the workshop-specific LMS (Moodle) site and can be downloaded prior to the start of the workshop.

Should participants wish to obtain hard copies of these materials, they are available for a cost of $35 on the College Board Online store.
