Tips for Using the App

Use β€˜Session Search by Keywords’ to explore educational sessions according to your learning needs or thematic focus. In the β€˜Schedule’ section of the app, you’ll be able to zero in on sessions categorized by a specified content level, Learning Stream, professional competency, or co-hosting unit.

Close out of the app after each use and watch for app updates to get the most up-to-date content! Because the app will be updated in real time, so be sure to close out of it completely after each use so that if there are updates, it can refresh. If the app simply remains open on your device, any changes that have been made to it in the meantime will not show up on your device. If you’re having any challenges with your app, close out of it completely, then reopen it to ensure updates go through and that you are viewing the most up-to-date information.
