To get started using the online GPS modules in your school/district:

Step 1.    Schools/districts should determine who will facilitate the online GPS modules within the school/district.

Step 2.    Schools/districts should contact the Director of ETC NSC   to schedule training for the facilitators of the online modules. This training will include instruction on the use of the online portal Desire2Learn (D2L), tips for teaching online, and procedures for requesting online GPS courses for the school/district.

Step 3.    Schools/districts should develop a plan, with the assistance from ETC NSC, for rolling out GPS training that includes both face-to-face and online components.

Step 4.    Schools/districts should e-mail Karen Holland, e-Learning Registrar, at kholland@kennesaw.edu to request information on how to get their teachers registered for the online GPS modules.

Step 5.    Once teachers are enrolled into the online modules, an e-mail notification will be sent to the facilitator. The e-mail will include a username and password for the facilitator as well as for the teachers.

Step 6.    An invoice will be sent to each school/district according to the cost guidelines established below. The cost varies for Phase I and Phase II due to a renegotiated contract with D2L.
