What is Chalkable University?

A free online platform for Chalkable users to learn, engage, and share tips about all Chalkable products.

Using our own learning management system, Study Center, we have launched courses and assessments about our products to help guide your school users and assist them in mastering each feature.

Chalkable University “students” will be able to watch videos that will train them how to make the most of Chalkable products, take assessments on what they have learned, and earn certifications for those products in a timeframe that is convenient for them!

Why did we create Chalkable University?

We listened to our users!

Chalkable users communicated they wanted a place where they could access content to train on features of our products.

With the self-assessment tool at the end of the videos, users can quiz themselves on what they have learned. If they pass the will receive a certificate of completion. If they do not pass, they have the opportunity to watch the content again and reassess.

With every video a user watches, the more confidence they will have to log into their Chalkable accounts and practice what they have learned when they get back to school!

Who should enroll in Chalkable University?

All Chalkable users should enroll in Chalkable University particularly if they would like to improve student engagement, improve their use of technology in the classroom, and are interested in becoming a valued resource for technology leadership in their school.

Teachers who complete training and the assessment will not only earn a Certificate of Completion, but they will discover a new level of information about their students to enrich their lesson plans and classroom management.

School tech coordinators who complete this training will know when to refer teachers to Chalkable University. Throughout the school year, coordinators are flooded with questions about their school’s SIS, LMS, and more. Chalkable University can help minimize the frequency of these questions and be a great resource for teachers who may have missed their school’s initial training.

Principals who complete this training will be supporting their teachers in learning their school technology to enhance student achievement. Chalkable University is a great resource to reinforce the professional development training given in the beginning of the year.
