This summer, students have the ability to request Temporary Access at the start of the term! This option is ideal for students waiting on financial aid or placement testing to purchase course materials. They are able to start learning the material and completing lessons on day one of class.
For full semester courses, students continue to receive a grace period of 20 days. For shorter terms, students receive 10 days.
How do I enable this tool so my students can request Temporary Access?
You can set up the Temporary Access by selecting Manage Temporary Access Codes from the Tools tab.
You can then add the course start and end dates for each section, as well as check on how many students are utilizing Temporary Access.
**Please use the exact start date of your course when setting up Temporary Access. Doing so ensures students receive the full benefit of this grace period as they await financial aid or placement test results.**
Course administrators have the ability to manage all instructors’ course start and end dates, as well as lock those dates:
These course start and end dates must be filled in before students will be able to request Temporary Access. Again, please input the exact course start date.
How do students request Temporary Access?
If they’ve never used Hawkes materials for other classes before, students will go to learn.hawkeslearning.com and select the “Create an Account” button toward the bottom:
Students then have the options of inputting the Access Code or License Number they’ve recently purchased, purchasing a permanent access code, and requesting Temporary Access.
They’ll then create an account and enroll in a section:
After they select the Enroll button, a verification email will be sent to their email address, and they’ll click the link they receive to finish the enrollment process. Once they sign in, they will have access to the course!
If students have used another Hawkes product before and have login information on learn.hawkeslearning.com already, they can still request Temporary Access for a new product. They’ll need to sign in and select the Add Course button in the My Courses section:
Students will then select the Request Temporary Access button underneath the Courses tab, which will lead them to the enrollment step noted above.
Once students purchase their materials, they will sign in and select the Activate button. Their Temporary Access will become lifetime access.
If you’d like to manage students’ Temporary Access manually and hand out codes to individual students as you do currently, that option is still available.
