Things are rapidly changing in our world today and Nepris is committed to providing more virtual opportunities to bring real-world learning and career exposure to students. Whether schools are closing because of COVID-19 or are being proactive about testing e-learning models, Nepris is here to provide support.
Until April 30, 2020, we are providing FREE access to ALL virtual Industry Chats. These online Chats are available to help prepare students for the future of work. You can find and schedule topics addressing a wide range of curriculum and career clusters in addition to college and career readiness offerings. Teachers can sign up to participate in these interactive, online talks to help keep students engaged during these unprecedented times.
And, if you’re a parent and would like to join these live sessions with your child from home, sign up on Nepris and follow the steps to join an Industry Chat. Or, scroll down to learn how you can share your own career with students via an Industry Chat.
To Have Your Students/Child(ren) Join an Industry Chat:
All educators, parents, and students are welcome to join Chats scheduled between now and April 30th. You can see the full list by clicking here and filter using the options on the left.
How Do I Sign Up?
Click on any session to learn more and register for the live connection with industry. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive a confirmation email with everything you need to know to join the Industry Chat.
How Do I Add My Students Who Are Connecting from Home?
In case you are at a virtual school, or your school has recently closed because of COVID 19, you can allow your students 13 and older to join the Chats from home. Those under age 13 can join with a parent. Once you have registered for an Industry Chat, the system will provide an Access Code under the confirmed date on the session page. You may give this code to the students to join the virtual session from their remote location. We also recommend that you are present at this session. Note that joining this way allows the participant to be on video and use their microphone (they can keep themselves hidden and muted if desired).
Before joining the virtual session, students need to create a profile on Nepris.com. At the time of the Chat, they can click on “Access Live Session” on the left side of their Dashboard and enter the Session Code. This launches the Industry Chat.
If you’d like more information on student access, please refer to this help document.
