To use FPSOnline, all students must be assigned to a team or individual registration code.

From your Dashboard, select Students from the left side menu.
Click “Add New Student” and complete the fields as follows:

* Note that if a students email is entered, the student will receive automated emails from FPSOnline, including username and password, and emails with evaluations.  FPSOnline uses the Amazon database to store information, and as such, student emails and other data will be stored outside Australia.  As coach, you may choose to enter your own email instead.

Completing a Booklet within FPSOnline

From your Dashboard, select “FPS Topics".
This will list your competitions.
Hover over your current topic and select "Start Project".
Select “Go To Virtual Booklet”.  (This will trigger a warning window stating that this will start the timer in timed competition.  Please ensure all team members are ready before selecting this option). Select OK.

All links are in the left menu.
Select "Dashboard" to return to the previous view.
Select "Instructions" for details on each step.
Select "Future Scene" to read the FS. (Note the FS cannot be printed from here)
Select Step 1 from the left side menu, then "Enter a New Challenge". Write the details of your Challenge into the box, and select Enter.
Make suggestions on other Challenges using Add Comments button.
Select Edit to update the Challenge or Delete to remove. (Note the Email option is not functioning)
Move through Step 2 and subsequent steps.
After each step is completed, all of the progress bars will show 100%.
Select “Dashboard” from the left side menu and the progress bar to ensure all steps have a green dot.
Select “Submit for Assessment” on the right side of the screen to submit your virtual booklet for evaluation. Submit before the competition timer expires or the entered data will be lost.

Note that if more than one student has the same text area open, some students work will be overwritten.  To avoid this, we make the following suggestions:
For Step 5, coordinate with other team members to ensure that only team member is working on the grid.
For Step 6, we highly recommend that students complete the Action Plan on a collaborative document outside FPSOnline (eg. Google Docs, Word Online, etc.) Once complete, all text should be pasted into Step 6, with a "see attached" note to make sure the evaluator sees the additions, and then diagrams can be uploaded via the Upload button on the Dashboard. 

If students upload an pdf attachment, in addition to the virtual booklet, students can continue to edit the booklet after the attachment has been loaded.

If students copy and paste text into FPSOnline, do not use special formatting, as this may cause problems with Criteria choices and the action plan.

A video tutorial can be viewed here. (Note that this tutorial is the FPSPI version, and some functionality may appear slightly different from the Australian version.)
