Microlearning for Windber Area School District

JoltEDU Microlearning for Educators, powered by IU8

So much to learn, so little time.

Since your school district is a part of IU8, you have access to IU8's JoltEDU micro-courses. JoltEDU provides short, self-directed courses about specific instructional topics. Choose the topics that interest you most, complete a course in an hour or less, and get some ready-to-use resources along the way. New micro-courses are released regularly, so check back often!

Is there a cost?

Yes and no. Micro-courses do have a small enrollment fee. However, educators from IU8 schools can use a coupon code at checkout to get a 100% discount for certain courses.

How do I get started?

  1. In the top bar, click LOGIN.
  2. Enter your school email address.
  3. Enter your JoltEDU password.  NOTE: If you don't know your password, click the FORGOT PASSWORD link to reset it. If you do not already have a JoltEDU account, click the SIGNUP link to create one. Be sure to use your school email address).

How do I get my coupon code?

For courses that are not on the "Free" list, you will either need to submit payment or ask your school leaders to contact us to coordinate district payment).
