Avenue Student Support - how-tos

Welcome to Avenue! In this section, you will learn the basics of using Avenue as a student. We’ll walk you through each part of the application and you’ll be using Avenue with ease in no time!

Checking Your System Requirements

Before logging in, Avenue will automatically check your system to ensure optimal performance. If your device is not meeting the system requirements, you’ll be given directions on how to address them.

Accessing Your Camera & Microphone

In order to use Avenue the way it’s intended to be used, the application will require access to your webcam and microphone. When the popup box appears asking for permission to access your camera and microphone click “Allow.” If you want Avenue to remember your settings, right-click your mouse anywhere on the screen, click “Settings…” and select the “Remember” checkbox.

Logging Into Avenue

  1. Enter your username. Your username is the email address you used to sign up for Avenue.
  2. Enter your password. Passwords are case sensitive, so make sure it’s entered exactly how you created it.
  3. Click the checkmark button and you’re good to go!
  4. Forget your password? If you forget your password, click the “Forgot Password” link at the bottom of the screen. You will be prompted to enter your email address/username. An email will be sent to you with directions on how to reset your password.

Selecting a Class

Select the class you want to access to proceed to your dashboard:

Using “My Dashboard”

In your dashboard you can:

  • View and complete your tasks by clicking on Tasks

Using “My Tasks”

This is your tasks table where all of the tasks assigned to you and awaiting completion will be listed. Only “pending” tasks will be visible here.

To begin a task, select one of the pending tasks that is listed

Once you select a task, you will see instructions explaining what you need to do to complete it.

You will:

  1. View the media provided by your teacher
  2. Align your camera
  3. Record a video response to the media
  4. Self-assess your performance
  5. Your task is complete

Once you complete your task, you will be taken back to your dashboard where you can view feedback from your teacher.

Using “My Feedback”

This is the feedback screen where you can view the scores and feedback your teacher has provided for the tasks you have completed.

To view your feedback, select a task that has been graded.

Your feedback screen will appear and you can compare your self-assessment with what your teacher gave you and also view video feedback that your teacher has given.

Data Visualization

The interactive visualization tool in Avenue displays student performance and progress in an informational graph.

To review your progress data:

  1. Go to the My Feedback screen either from the dashboard or the footer menu
  2. Click on the data icon to see your progress over time

The graph will display and you can compare and contrast your data with the class data.
