Requirements for Utilizing Subscriptions

  • SKrafty courses, both live and self-paced, can be participated in using any browser. Live class participants will have the best experienced when accessed via Chrome or Firefox browsers.
  • Minecraft assignment builds are completely optional and can be created on our server or in single-player mode. Builds may also be done with alternative materials like building bricks or even in drawn art.
  • Our Minecraft assignment build server is only available for the Java (computer) and Bedrock (aka Pocket Edition/PE) versions of the game. Our free Multiplayer games server is available on the Java edition (Windows/Mac) of Minecraft and also houses a robust creative area for our SKool participants. Our Bedrock version server only houses a classroom build server and is only available to Subscribers.  The Bedrock edition of Minecraft is available on tablets, phones, Surfacebooks, Galaxybooks, Chromebooks, and other similar non-traditional OS computers (these non-traditional computers will not run the Java version of the game). The Windows 10 app (usually purchased via the Microsoft Store) for Minecraft is Bedrock edition and will not give you access to our PC games server, only the Bedrock version server. We do not have a server accessible via Bedrock versions of Minecraft on consoles (Xbox, PlayStation, Switch).

How to Create a Parent Account

A Parent account will give you the ability to view your students chat logs for the last 24 hours, view students course progression and quiz results, as well as access the Chore Rewards and Parental code programs in one centralized location. Please be sure you are logged out of your student account(s) as you will need to create a new account (one for yourself). The Parent Dashboard is $20, but If you have purchased a Subscription for your student, email support@skrafty.com for the discount code for your free account.

  • Head to https://whenyouriseup.com/product/parent-dashboard-registration/ and click Add to Cart.
    • In your cart, confirm your purchase is correct, enter a coupon code (if available), and click Proceed to Checkout.
    • Here you will create the account your student will access their course(s) with as well as pay for your order (if you are not utilizing a discount code). This account is for the parent, so you will use your information for this account. If you do not have a Minecraft username, you can skip those fields.
  • Once you’ve completed your purchase, you will now have a button at the top of your page that says “Parent”. This is where you will access your Parent Dashboard:
  • In order to add your students to this account, you will need to log into each student account and find their Student ID Number. Once logged into the student account, got to the My Info button and click Account Information. You will find the number on the top of the column just to the left of the page. You can also find this ID Number by clicking “Student Portal” and looking near the top of that page
  • After you’ve gathered your Student ID Number(s), you will go back to your Parent account and go to the Parent Portal Controls section. Click the button that says “Link Students”.  You will enter the Student ID Number and the email address for your student’s account here. You will repeat this step for each student.

    • Once a student is linked, you will be able to select their name in the drop down in the upper left corner. You will be able to switch between multiple students with this button to view their 24 hour chat log (only available for Minecraft Java version users), course progression, quiz results, planner schedules, and report cards.
  • The daily codes for our *Parental Control program and our *Chore Rewards program are found in the buttons in the Parental Portal section as well. These can be registered for by clicking the appropriate buttons.
      • *These programs are only available for students utilizing the Java version of Minecraft. A valid Java Minecraft username must already be added to the student’s SKrafty account in order to successfully complete registration to these programs.

 

 

How to Access Courses

Courses are accessed through our website, whenyouriseup.com (skrafty.com).  You can quickly access our entire course list at our Course Library or you can go to the “My Info” button and select “My Enrolled Course List”.

You can participate in live class sessions on PC, laptops, or devices like tablets and phones. Recordings for each live session will be available on the lesson page shortly after the live session ends.

 

 

How to Utilize Bookmarks

As part of our Subscription programs, your student will be enrolled in all available courses fo your subscription option. This means all the courses will show in their Course Library. Because of this, the Bookmark feature will help you more easily access only the courses your student is actively taking.

  • To add a course to your bookmarks list, open the course and scroll to the “Bookmark” link between the course description and the list of lessons. Click that link and it will add the course to your Bookmark list. You can organize your Bookmarks however you’d like. To delete a bookmark, simply click the link once more and uncheck the checkbox.

  • Coins may be used to upgrade a students level. There will be more fun coming to this feature in the future, so keep your eyes out for changes.
  • Another feature of the Student Portal is the To Do list. This allows you or your student to create lists of things to be done by the student and deadline that will appear in this section. This is helpful to remind your student of assignments due, chores to be done, and more.

How to Complete Courses

SKrafty offers both self-paced and Live courses. Self-paced course may be taken at any time, on any schedule you prefer. Live courses are taken at the pacing and schedule provided. Courses begin with Lesson One and must be taken in the order presented. As your student completes their course, they will earn badges and coins that they can view in their student portal.  This is the process for completing a course:

  • Click on the first lesson to be taken to that lessons presentation. If applicable, you will find either a recorded video or link to the Live session that will be taking place at the given scheduled time. *Should you find that a video link is broken, please contact support@skrafty.com to let us know.*
  • Once the lesson video is completed (if applicable), click on the first topic listed beneath the lesson video to complete the assignment provided.
  • As you move through the topics, you will find a button that says “Mark Complete” at the bottom of each page. You must click this button to move through the lesson. If you do not, you will receive an error asking you to complete the previous lesson in order to continue. *Note – Minecraft Assignments are completely optional. If you wish to skip these, you may simply click the Mark Complete button and move on. You must still click the button.
  • Once you’ve completed all topics in a lesson, you will return to the lesson page and find a final Mark Complete button for that lesson. Click this button to access the next lesson in your course. You will notice each topic now has a green light beside it.
  • Once you’ve completed all lessons and their associated topics, you will be presented with a full “Course Progress” bar and a button that will take you to your course completion certificate.
  • If you have reached the end of your course and are not presented with the Certificate, please review all previous lessons to ensure each Mark Complete button was clicked on each topic and lesson. Even if you are not participating in the Minecraft Assignments, you must click the Mark Complete button.
  • You will also receive nuggets for use in our Java Minecraft server. These are automatically awarded to the player upon completion of a course along with the “Diamond Armor” badge.

 

 

How to Submit Assignments

Some of our Live courses will require the student to submit assignments via our website. Our IEW courses will require the use of Google Docs for assignment submission and the instructions for that are found in the Getting Started section of those courses. Here is how to do submit assignments for non-IEW courses.

  • The homework assigned must be completed and assembled as instructed by the teacher. This can be done by scanning hand written papers/worksheets into one document or typing homework on a digital document directly.
    • Take a picture or scan your completed assignments and combine all the images into one document. Upload this assignment using the box below. Click Browse, find your file, and insert it. Click Upload and then your done.  If you are not familiar with the process of combining images on a document, you can follow these steps to do so:
      • Create a new document using the word processor of your choice.
      • Enter your assignment into the document by typing and adding pictures. Place pictures in the document by clicking the “Insert” option then “Image” and selecting the photo/scan you wish to add. Images can be resized to fit the page.
      • Save your document in a place where you will easily find it to upload to your Submit Homework page. *If you are using Google Docs, go to the top left and click File. Go to the Download option and select PDF. Save this PDF to a folder where you can find it.
  • Students will have a topic in the lesson called “Submit Homework.” In this topic, you will find a box to add your document for submission:
  • You can not submit more than one file in the Upload box and you will not be able to make any changes to your submissions if you make a mistake. Please be sure you have selected the proper file before submitting your work.
